    Pump Removal & Impeller Change "Pics" Step by Step

    Last year I had to remove my pump to change my impeller, so I took pics of each step, I thought these might help someone that would like to change there impeller

    before you remove the reverse bucket you can remove the thrust nozzle, then the reverse bucket

    so start with pic #5, 6, 7, 8, then remove the reverse bucket, makes for removing the bucket alot easier without the nozzle in your way


    1. remove the left bolt from the reverse bucket




    2. remove the right bolt from the reverse bucket



    3. remove nut & bolt from reverse bucket hinge



    4. remove bolt from hinge & ride plate



    5. remove nut from steering cable



    6. remove nut from trim cable



    7. remove hose clamp from cooling line



    8. remove 4 bolts that hold the thrust nozzle on the pump



    9. just a pic of pump after nozzle has been removed



    10. remove the 4 bolts holding the pump to the hull



    11. remove cone from pump



    12. pic of cone removed



    13. pic of pump removed



    14. pic of pump



    15. to remove the impeller from the pump you'll need to put the end of the shaft
    in a vise and with the impeller removing tool in the impeller you'll need to
    probably use a breaking bar to turn the impeller off the shaft....its on tight




    16. pic of original compared to the Solas



    17. pics of my Solas after getting some rocks through my pump

    Your timing is impeccable! Make it a stinky, along with servicing the pump with new lube!

    Make sure you retrieve the rubber insert back out of your old impeller's shaft hole and install it into you new one or you'll have to disassemble it again to do it. It is hard to see inside the splined hole but it has to be there.
