Iíve got a Northern Lights M643 5kw generator. After running last night, I noticed some water in the drip pan. It appears my raw water pump is leaking around the shaft. Since it hasnít run for a while, is this something that will fix itself with continued running?
If not, I see the rebuild kit is available from Diesel Parts Direct (great service and super quick shipping, by the way) but Iíve never done one of these before.
As Iím sure many here have probably done something similar, Iím looking for any tips or pointers. Any special tools needed?
Removal and installation looks pretty straightforward, but is there anything Iím missing?
Also, is there any better place to get the parts?
