SOURCE: Mercury 20Hp impeller/water pump location

It is located inside the lower unit housing. They are fairly easy to replace. Most Mercury authorized service stations will charge around $120 for this task.

SOURCE: water works spa pump- need to remove wet end...

Most of these are reverse threaded. There should be a place on the shaft that is flat on 2 sides a 1/2" or 9/16" wrench will fit into the slots. If not look at the back for a place to use a hex key. Hold the wrench/ hex key stationary with the Impeller facing you turn clockwise.
I know this sounds backwards but it should work.
Hope this helps

The impeller is turning but the blades are not. Belt seems ok

Depending on your make of snowblower, At the impeller there is usually 1 or 2 shear pins or bolts circled in red. If the impeller and the impeller shaft are turning but the augers are not, the gear may be stripped inside the gear box circled in yellow or the keyway may have sheared between the auger gear and the auger shaft.

Triumph stag not starting when hot

what ignition system have you got on your stag? is it the origional twin contact and condenser system, the origional system needed to be setup correctly to work dwell of 26to28degrees the condenser was the favourite suspect.if it has been changed to electronic check for good spark at the king lead. if thats ok no matter which ign. system you have got, the problem may be the twin su fuel pump located in the the boot.make sure the pumps are working should hear them tick at ignition on. it could be fuel vapourisation. is the engine overheating? it will be on stromberg carbs. you should check the diaphams are ok

Auger has no torque

Assume it is 2 stage ie: front auger and impeller. If the impeller turns and the front auger does not then it is probably the shear bolts have broken. The shear bolts are soft metal and are designed to break should the front auger hit something hard. There may be a small tool box on top just right of the chute, there shud be bolts there. DO NOT under any circumstances replace these with regular bolts as major damage to the engine could occur. Hope this helps

Swisher 27" snowblower front impellers turn free

Hi Craig,

Most snowblowers incorporate "shear pins" between the motor and auger. A shear pin looks similar to a nut and bolt or pin that couples the drive to the auger - but it designed to break or shear off to prevent damage to the auger or motor in the event of a jam or overload. They look like these:



Only the shear pin recommended for your particular brand and model snowblower should be used. Under no circumstances should a regular bolt or other steel pin be used instead of a shear pin. Check your manual or consult with Swisher to determine the correct shear pin for your snow blower.

I hope this helps & good luck!

How do I remove impeller from motor? Is there bolt or does it screw off? It appears head of bolt is sheared off.

The impellar spins off counterclockwise on most pumps. The hard parts are holding the motor shaft from rotating and finding a way to grip the impellar.

Will not spin regularly

The water should be pumped out in a short time just before the spin cycle begins. Do you hear the pump motor running? Check the drain hoses to and from the water pump for kinking. If ok, check for a stray sock or something that blocks the drain port in the bottom of the outer tub. If also ok, check the plastic pump impeller itself for sheared splines which couple it to the motor shaft. If the motor turns, but impeller doesn't, replace the pump mechanism. If still under warranty, take advantage. Hope this helps!

Washer will not spin and drain water after washing. The timer will run thru it's cycle and you can hear it running but after the wash cycle it does nothing.

The water must drain away before modern electronic controls will allow 'spin' to occur. Check the hoses to and from the pump for kinking and the drain port at the bottom of the outer tub for any debris in the tub that can obstruct water outflow. If all looks ok, concentrate on the water pump itself--the motor must run, but the impeller in the pump may not be turning with the motor shaft. Impellers in these pumps are made of plastic and are lightly splined to the motor shaft. Sometimes these splines shear off and the impeller remains relatively motionless. It might be possible to 'super-glue' the impeller to the shaft or just replace the whole pump mechanism. Hope this helps!
