Impeller Replacement Made Easier
|A new rubber impeller and cover gasket are required to complete this task.|
Getting the raw water pump out of the engine compartment is the easiest part of this job. Once the pump was out and I removed the pump's cover, it was understandable why no water was coming out of the exhaust--all but one blade was worn off. At this point, removing the old impeller and installing the new impeller was easily accomplished.
|Only one of the six rubber blades was fully in tact--one other was partially in tact.|
|This much damage had to have happened over some time period, like several months.|
|This hose arrangement make look sloppy but it allows me to get the water |
pump completely out of the crowded engine compartment to change the
impeller in the future--I don't even have to remove the hoses.
|A perfect exhaust stream after all the work is done!|

than the Great Blue Heron and have colors similar to a seagull (gray, white, and black).
