Water Pump Repair Kit


Remove gearcase from outboard. Refer to appropriate Service Manual.

Remove the impeller housing screws.

Pull up on the driveshaft and remove the driveshaft with the water pump assembly from the gearcase. Remove the water pump assembly from the driveshaft.

Remove the impeller plate and gasket. Discard the gasket.

Remove the water pump grommet, all O-rings, and the shift rod bushing from the impeller housing.


Check impeller for overheating, hub separation, and other wear or damage.

Check liner and wear plate for scoring, distortion, and impeller material transfer.

Inspect the housing for cracks or melting.


Oil and install the shift rod bushing into the impeller housing.

Apply Triple-Guard grease to the shift rod O-ring and install below bushing.

Apply a thin bead of Adhesive 847 in the inner groove of the impeller housing and install a new impeller cup O-ring.

Lightly coat the exterior of the impeller cup with Gasket Sealing Compound. Align tabs of impeller cup with location holes of impeller housing and install the impeller cup into the impeller housing.

Lightly coat the inside of the impeller cup with oil. With a counterclockwise rotation, install the impeller into the impeller cup.

The sharp edge of cam slot in the impeller is the leading edge during rotation.

Apply Adhesive 847 to the outer seal groove of the impeller housing. Install a new seal into the groove.

Lightly oil pinion splines of the driveshaft. Slide the driveshaft through the impeller housing and impeller until drive cam flat of the driveshaft is below the impeller. Align drive cam flat with groove of the impeller. Install the impeller drive cam.

Sharp edge of the cam is leading edge during driveshaft rotation. Slide the impeller housing down the driveshaft. Engage the impeller with the cam.

Make sure the impeller is oriented properly and engages the impeller cam properly. Serious powerhead damage will result if impeller cam is displaced.

Lightly coat both sides of a new impeller plate gasket with Gasket Sealing Compound. Place gasket on the gearcase.

Place the impeller plate over the gasket.

Slide the driveshaft down into the gearcase and engage the pinion.

Turn the driveshaft until holes of the impeller housing are aligned with holes of the gearcase. Apply Gasket Sealing Compound to threads of the impeller housing screws. Tighten the screws to a torque of 60 to 84 in. lbs. (7 to 9.5 Nm).

Apply Adhesive 847 to outside of water tube grommet. Install grommet and locate grommet bosses into holes of impeller housing.

Install gearcase on outboard. Refer to appropriate Service Manual. Tighten gearcase mounting screws to a torque of 128 to 146 in. lbs. (14.5 to 16.5 N·m).

2010 and Older Models ONLY Install the pressure relief valve and thermostat springs provided with Water Pump Impeller Kit, P/N 5008185. Refer to instructions provided with Water Pump Impeller Kit or appropriate Service Manual.

Failure to install impeller assembly and springs as a set can result in:

A cold running engine, if the impeller is installed without the pressure relief valve and thermostat springs.

An engine overheat, if the pressure relief valve and thermostat springs are installed without the new impeller.

Start outboard. Check water pump operation. Check engine operating temperature. Refer to appropriate Service Manual for engine temperature check procedure.

DO NOT run outboard without a water supply to the outboard's cooling system. Cooling system and/or powerhead damage could occur. Be sure the water intake screens are below the water surface.
