    hey guys, I need to buy a new raw water pump for my CAT 375hp 3208. Does anyone have any leads on a used one or one off a parts engine? Thanks

    If my memory serves me correct on the 3208 mine took a jabsco pump and the difference between a rebuild or a new one was about 100-150 dollars for peace of mind I just bought a new one when my old one started going(leaking around the shaft that drove the impeller)

    I snagged one that was used, I think I did a bargain on eBay for about 135 or 150. It was a Jabsco 777-9001. If memory serves it works for the 3208. The 3160 that I have I believe is arranged the same way with water pump on the left side of the motor. Save the old one.

    not a problem at all. the hardest part you might have finding is the correct size pulley for the belt

    ..........correct size pulley for the pump. The belt is purchased new to fit the pulley. Small pumps with low volume have small diameter pulleys for higher pump speed, larger pumps with higher volume have large diameter pulleys for lower pump speed. The later is the best choice for longer impeller life but both work fine.
