Well, my F935 front mower's Yanmar engine's water pump seal is letting go slowly. Been leaking a bit the last few times I've used it. And man is John Deere proud of that pump! Over $280 for a new one!!! There's a place that will rebuild mine for $145 plus shipping both ways. So that will make it around $165, which is still nuts. Oh well, gonna have to have it. Bad thing is, by sending it off, I'm without it that long. I do have my Massey 1010 to mow with, but it's deck is 1' narrower cut, and nowhere near as fast and nimble as the F935.
If anyone knows a cheaper source for rebuilding....I'm all ears!

I guess you wouldn't have many marine Yanmar dealers in Kentucky. They are used in boats here and there are marine engine shops that can fix them. I'm not sure they would be much cheaper than the JD dealer though.

You might be surprised. I would expect there to be one around Lake Cumberland or along the Ohio River.

Found this on their website for Kentucky:

Kentucky Lake Sails, Inc.
P.O. Box 129
42045 Grand Rivers

T 270.362.8201
F 270.362.4107


They are not close (by Paducah) but still an option. Nothing available in Tennessee from what I can find. Tons of dealer in my neck of the woods up along Lake Erie in Ohio.

Can't help you out but do remember when you could buy water pump rebuild kits that could be installed on our own ? Hope you find one soon , Al

Did some more digging. I can't seem to cross ref the Deere part number MIA880048 (number 20 in the diagram) for a Yanmar number. Which engine is it?

May have good news. The gal at a rebuild shop online...called her, but the service guy is out hunting turkeys (last day of season) so I'll have to call back tomorrow. This guy sells rebuild kits also, but my pump calls for impeller machining. The shaft seal assembly fits into the impeller, so it's likely just a simple job on my lathe. She said likely he'd sell me just the kit since I can do my own machining. I'll know tomorrow. I sure hope so, cause it'd likely save me $75+, and not have 6 to 8 days minimum down time shipping my pump back & forth.

Oh she's not down....just gotta keep a close eye on the water level. I've mowed a few times with her leaking, but I don't like it!

WooHOO!!!!!! Got me a kit on the way this morning. Just under $60!!!!!!!!!!!! All I have to do is turn the impeller hub down even to the pump blades. He said it's simple as sin, and I'm sure it will be. I could have done it for $32 shipping & all, but some pumps have tin impellers, and he said they are always junk when rebuild time comes, and not knowing what's inside mine, I spent the $27 for a new impeller just to be sure. So the $280 plus tax from John Deere has turned into $60 doing it myself! :dancingbanana:

Here's the link to the business. He is a super guy to deal with. And he was in a great mood, even though he didn't get a turkey yesterday! :thumbs:
I'll try to remember to take pics as I go on the rebuild.

Got to love it when you can fix it for way cheaper than the part from the dealer.
