Subject: RE: [campernicholson] Lift pump for Perkins 4-108The term "lift pump" generally refers to the small crank-driven fuel pump that feeds the injector pump.In my experience, rebuilding a raw water pump after seal failure is rarely worthwhile. Its usually cheaper (labor-wise) to replace the whole pump.Graham-----Original Message-----Dear Colin,

If the term "lift pump" means sea-water-pump for engine cooling, I experienced a leak in my Jabsco pump on my Perkins 4.108 in September. When I called the local Perkins dealer I had the option of buying parts, eg, new shaft, to the pump. In my case there was a groove in the shaft, but I managed to move the new (cheap industrial) sealing (where I moved over the stainless spring of the old one) beside the groove, so I didn't have to buy a new shaft or have it re-machined.
To answer you question: you should be able to get parts if it is the same pump.
