There are plenty of things I`d be checking before rebuilding the FW circulation pump because of "just slightly elevated coolant temps". Maybe it had other signs of issues. What engines are these?
The MDJE is probably original. My boat began life with one, replaced with an MDKD 6.5 by the time I bought. 3cyl, smooth and quiet, presumably a Kubota, (touch-wood) gives little trouble. All that oil in the drip tray overflowing to the bilge, and absorbers in the bilge suggests, especially in an otherwise OCD maintained boat, something difficult needs fixing. I`m with Ski, budget on replacing it.
