    I would never use black sealant. I'm guessing the original owner.

    Can't knock him too hard, seems to have held until just now :)

    If nothing else is an issue, this might be it.

    Can't hurt to reseal it.

    When i resealed pump a few people told me that they had no sealant on their pumps so dont do it. My boat started cavitating after i cleared some debri that got sucked up. There was abit a 1" gap in the original sealent. The hardest part was removing the original sealent. I started with rtv silicone as a test, when that failed a few weeks later i replaced it with 5200. Just put a bead of it down and flatten it out with a razor blade. Cover whats left with masking tape until the 5200 cures and Remove any residual stuff before hitting the water.

    I replaced the sealant with 5200. Checked the bearing and they are still completely full of oil. Btw no whining noise out of water. Maybe the sucking air is making the noise. Haven't used my boat in months. Worst weather this summer ever.
