Bloodless Impeller Changing? ~ By Tom Neale

”Where do they find those guys with the clean fingernails for the pictures in the engine tech manuals? And where is all the blood? I’ve never seen any of these people with clean hands wearing clean Dickies around any boats I know. One of my favorite chapters in these manuals is the one with a guy gracefully removing the impeller to a water pump">raw water pump while the engine is sitting on a bench. The pictures usually include a special tool to help. If they showed me, working on my Perkins in my engine room, the photos would be X rated because of the mangled human remains. The manual always says something like, “remove the old impeller and put in a new one,” Sure. That’s like saying, “Just have a baby today.” ...”

The smart thing to do is to put them where you can reach them!

Aloha Del,
What's the fun in that? Looks like you planned that installation well or at least the engine designer did.
After all your help I decided to go with a new pump and ordered it yesterday from Fisheries. Real friendly helpful folks.
My decision was based on parts costing 1/3 the price of a new pump and the possibility that I might need more parts plus no guarantees that the parts sent would be the right ones.
Again, thanks for your help.
Regards, JohnL
