anyone recently ordered Oberdorfer N 202M15?
« on: April 26, 2021, 09:44:34 AM »

at the end of last year noticed a tiny bit of weeping on my Obendorfer water pump- barely a drop in several hours of motoring.  last replaced in 2010.  Saw a good price on Parts and Pumps on line $238 but have not called to check on shipping time frame and if they have a gasket available. https://www.pumpsandpartsonline.com/shop/oberdorfer-pumps/rubber-impeller/rubberimpellerpumps/N202M-15

but it says for engine model M30 and M 50, but I believe my model is M35 on my 1997 Universal Westerbeke.  I am sure of the model number on the pump I replaced in 2010.  and I have yet to contact any local shops in Anacortes for their price and availability.  Thought I'd see if any of you have ordered recently, and your details and buying experience.

If itís weeping just service the pump (the oil and water seal and possibly a new shaft).
Ron wrote an article on it DYI or send it to Depco and theyíll replace whatís necessary (including the carbon bearing if necessary, which is not DIY.)

I agree, rebuild it.

I wrote one, too:

I wish I was handy, but as I get older, I trust myself less and less.  I looked at the re-build link and I thought I saw something about getting a press, which I don't have, not to mention DIY skills confidence.  I can do zincs, and oil and fuel filter and fluid changes and some basic replacement of things like fresh water pump replacement, bilge pumps and float switches and simple replacement things item for item like the AC battery charger, but that's about it.  I can't even remember the steps to tighten my engine belt.   :cry4`

Depco used to charge $50 plus parts; I havenít checked recently.

Maybe a bit late to this tread. I bought an Obendorfer N 202M15 pump in March from online shop at $225 free shipping.

https://www.pumpsandpartsonline.com/shop/oberdorfer-pumps/rubber-impeller/rubberimpellerpumps

I called them prior to place the PO, and they claimed they had 10 in stock. They are located in St-Louis, MS. Received the product in approx. 1 week. All good. I installed it and replaced original Sherwood on my 1995 MK1.5 M35A. Easy using the procedure found on Cat34 org. Got the Gasket and spare rubber impeller from Catalina Direct.
