Question about Boating
Mate i have not done this one in particular, but most impellers in outboard motors are in the leg. You will need to undo the bolts above the water intake to remove the bottom of the leg,first disconnect the gear selector. Usually behind a cover-plate up near the engine end of the leg. once you have the linkage and the bolts (about 5 bolts that run up the leg, bolt heads point to the ground)undone you can lower the leg out with a bit of a wiggle(don't forget the bolt above the prop). Put the leg on a work bench.the drive shaft protrudes from the impeller housing, undo the bolts that retain the housing and remove, exposing the impeller. when you reassemble be sure to insert the impeller so that the fins are laying in the correct direction to avoid pinching on start up, and when you stick the leg back together be careful to align the water cooling tube in its correct position. It looks and sounds hard but it isn't that bad at the end. The first time i did this i looked over someones shoulder then no sweat. Good luck Timo
