grease it up a LITTLE bit, wihle pushing it in rotate it the way the engine turns so they dont have to bend the right way and possibly break off, also dont loose that little pin! learned that the hard way

Don't loose what little pin?? I have not even taken it apart yet. When I remove the bolts that hold the lower unit on, is there some sort of shift linkage that I need to remove as well?? Any other tricks for replacing the impeller?? How do I know which way the engine turns?? Just bump it over with the starter??

Thanks for the help!!

The driveshaft will always turn clockwise.

I can't recommend a shop manual strongly enough. That $30 will pay for itself 25 times over.

Also, I wouldn't just replace the impeller...get the kit with the new housing, wear plate, impeller, key, cup, gasket, and bolts.

I tried to save $25 by just replacing the impeller and it didn't fix the problem. Bought the kit and it worked perfect.

Hannay's in St. Anthony is where I had the best luck finding in-stock parts. Otherwise boats.net is a Yammy dealer from Clearwater, FL that has prices that are tough to beat if you can wait 4 days for delivery.

If you are in Forest Lake Halbergs has always been good about having the part I need. Make sure you have your model # off the motor before you go in.

I've done two impellers now, one on an 8 horse the other on a 150, its not too bad. Maybe take you 2 hours tops.

It should have a 2 piece shift shaft that you will need to disconnect by unscrewing it. You will see the shaft, a long nut and a jam nut on the leading edge of the motor going down (move the shifter a little bit and you will see what I mean), count the turns or threads showing for reassembly.

    • Was doing some work in the woods today and found these. Of course I stopped and spent two hours looking for more, but this was it. Oh well, will probably be the earliest I've ever gotten to eat them.  
    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
