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

Patrick Naegels <naegels@...>

Hi Graham,

I have no problem to pull out impeller. I use 2 corner pliers. That
comes rather easy, but I have to say that I inspect (moved out) or
replace this impeller every 200H. This makes probably everything easier,
moreover I put lithium grease everywhere.

I have to check impeller every 200 H because impellers don't live really
longer in my seawaterpump . Default ? Amel checked already body pump
inside but no defaults were found.

I agree that on Yanmar it's harder, and we have no more place to put a

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

I am having a night-mare time trying to change the raw water impeller
on my 6.5 KW Onan generator. The problem is there is no front access
to the pump due to the large gen-set bolted on to the kubota engine.
So far,round the corner pliars have proved useless and of course
there is absolutely no room to get a "puller" into the space between
the geny and the pump. Before I go to the trouble of removing the
pump from the engine, has anyone any suggestions or a source for
miniature pullers to get the impeller out?
