Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Impeller Puller Tool
There is an alternative, really simple, means of accessing the Onan impeller.
1. Simply disconnect the two water pipes ( by loosening the two jubilee clips and pulling the pipes off the pump)
2. Undo the two bolts which attach the pump to the engine. There is no seal between the pump and the engine but the first time you detach the pump you may have to give it a tap to part it from the engine.
3.With the pump now free you can sit in the cockpit with it, pour yourself a beer and withdraw and replace the impeller at your leisure.
The only downside is that your excuse for colourful language and skinned knuckles is somewhat reduced.
