It is probably time to replace the two seals inside the pump. Since you'll need to take it off to do it, you may want to have the pump rebuilt at the same time. In time, the salt water leaking inside can cause damage to the pump shaft and bearings.

Before you attempt to replace the seals - take a look at this link for some great info: http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/f54/rebuilding-sherwood-g65-for-perkins-4-108-a-20618.html .

Sherwood recommends the major repair kit on the G-65 pump every 4 years with light duty pleasure craft use. I've seen the major repair ket selling for $120 to $135. You can buy a new pump for $350 or so. I do not know what would be the cost to send the pump out and have it rebuilt but you might want to contact Transatlantic Diesel (or similar) for pricing. Reading the link makes me think that buying a new pump or sending out for repair is the better option. Perhaps only the seals need to be replaced, in which case it might be an easier job to tackle.
