RXP pump bearing
How often do we really need to replace pump bearing on our RXP?
Dealer says about every 100h
I have +150h so far @8100 in salt water, just inspected inside nose cone,
grease looks ok, very black a bit low, but not water intrusion
What you guys reckon is a safe hour limit on those stock bearings?
Can i replace it myself, will i need an hydraulic press?
or better let the dealer press it inside the pump?

You have water in the pump... replace the front seals, and the cone o-rings. Might as well throw a bearing in it as well... and be done with it for a while.

Hi BIGDADDY, can you check my pics: are you positive I have water in the pump?
The o-rings all look intact, what do you mean by front seals? I know only 1, the black neoprene seal that s same diameter as wear ring and goes just on top of it in the pump
Can I change the bearing myself, or is it better to let the dealer do it?
Do I need an hydraulic press to push in inside, or will it just slide in with a bit of grease? any tips welcome

There is a seal behind the prop that seals the pump shaft, and it appears to be letting water in your pump. The grease will turn black like yours is... when water is present in the pump. If you have the proper tools, and knowledge... you can do the job yourself!
