Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Onan generator raw water pump impeller removal

Dear Graham,

Try using two screw drivers, one top and one bottom, to wedge out the impeller. You don't have to get the tips behind it, just dig them into the rubber. Before putting in the new impeller, clean the shaft and coat it with Lanocoat (or plain anhydrous lanolin if you can't get Lanocoat) and the impeller will come out with much less effort next time! It is a bit of a hassle getting the new impeller in from that awkward angle.
