    Help me get this JS550 impeller off

    87 js550 got it this far and hoping you guys can help me get the solas off for some repairs/replacement. I know it is supposed to be left handed which is why I rigged it like you see here but no luck. What do I try next? The guy before must have sucked a rock and bent two of the three blades, do you suppose I can work these out like hammering out body panels? how would you do it?

    use some heat and yes the threads are left handed so you would spin the impeller to the right if youre looking at the snout. solas also makes a special impeller tool to get their impellers off. might be work the cost to get the impeller off without damaging it.

    Heat will help, I use a map gas torch to speed it up. Usually 3-4 minutes of moving the torch around. If you fail cool it with ice , especially the shaft til its cold start the process over it has to go fast. your trying to take advantage of the impeller rapidly expanding away from the shaft as it heats. Fast is right , worth the effort.
