How to Replace an Outboard Impeller?

Answer

You will need a padded vice, screwdriver, new pump impeller, socket wrenches and pliers. Find the four mounting screws on the bottom of the motor and use a screwdriver to remove them before disconnecting the shroud. Use the vice to clamp the shroud once it’s off the motor and look for the bell shaped water pump housing which should be removed using a socket wrench. Put the new impeller in the housing and slide it back into the transmission shaft. Use the mounting bolts to tighten the housing before sliding the lower motor shroud back into place on the bottom of the upper motor shroud. Attach the wiring harness and use the mounting screws to secure the motor shroud.
