I noticed a drip form the bottom of the sea water pump of my 2003 regal2465 with a volvo penta 5.0Gxi. I changed the impeller and the housing on the advice of the dealer. The drip is still there, seems to be coming from where the housing is screwed onto the pump. Should I also change the o-ring and sealing washer?

Yes but I think you have a shaft seal leaking. If you are going to service the pump change all seals. Cool
