Good motor, had one in my charter boat. Nothing wrong with the Sherwood pump. Chesapeake Bay watermen have used them for decades. Not uncommon to get 10, 000 hours out of them with minimal maintenance. They are not a sleeved motor. So rebuilding doesn't get you new liners unless you have the block bored and press in sleeves.....which is done. Engines are still sold from Cummins as a factory reman. This means a new engine with one used part on it.
