To replace the seawater pump on your engine the pump must be removed from the engine. Loosen belt tensioner remove belt. Locate the pump and bracket there are 2 bolts holding the pump to the engine. Remove the hoses from the rear of the pump marking which hose goes to which nipple of the pump. Now remove the 2 bolts # XXXXX holding the pump to the front of the engine. Once you have the complete assembly removed take note of the location of the pump on the bracket. There is a certain position the pump is mounted to the bracket. Now remove the pump housing and impeller. Install the impeller on the pump shaft then put some light oil in the housing turn the pump pulley to the right while pushing the housing on to the impeller. Check the mount holes of the pump aligning to the correct place. Reinstall in reverse and connect the hoses to the same nipple you removed them from. Now this is the same pump on your engine with very little difference. Post back with questions.
