Re: question about impellers

joseph mc donnell

Hi Eric

With your question you raise a number of others, namely

Which raw water pump is on your engine
How old is it ( is it the original unit)
When was it last serviced (seals replaced)
Does it leak ( when running)
Do you have a spare service kit or two
Is there any visable wear on the inside of the pump

As Craig said, its a good idea to stick to the recomendations in the service manual, particularly if you are not to familiar with the pump.
But these are some of the things you should considering when you are inspecting the pump.
Check and see if you can get your hands on the Workshop Manual for your engine, you will find it invaluable. You should also be able to get detailed drawings of your pump on the web by typing in the make and model number.

any body have any advise about pulling and replacing the impellers on the volvo engine.

1. how often does one need to replace it and is there a special procedure/tool for replacing the impreller. I'm on a amel now and we are going to change the impeller before we head out. Ours "looks" fine but are thinking we should change it.
