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.

    • Shame on you for questioning  these great and wonderful plans.  Have you no faith?  Besides it's pure nonsense.  She made a lot of claims that her plans would not add anything to the deficit or debt   But we have heard those same claims many times over.  It's a mystery why people still believe that everything is going to be funded through just simply raising taxes on people making over $250,000 a year just because "their " candidate said so When a candidate comes up with more spending ideas and tells you that the "rich" are going to be the ones that are going to fund them ,what they really mean is they're  going to fund them through printing and borrowing. They just use accounting tricks and schemes to hide the cost but I prefer math   Personally, I prefer any candidate I were to support tell us how they're going to get us out of this fiscal mess we're in    
    • I agree he should not have been playing in the world cup.
    • Im going to run my Elite 5 on the dash also, soley as my gps. So that will free up space on the Garmin for the side imaging...Now I cant wait for spring to try out all the new toys haha....I've always heard Garmin were really nice I just never saw any of their units that had the features I wanted and were in my $$ range.. I think I'll be really happy with it...Im curious how the preloaded maps are that come with it (lakevu??) I think its called. It would be sweet if it would take my Garmin upper midwest fishing guide chip, but I doubt it does.
    • I don't think it will adhere to the surface very well under 50 degrees.  Especially on the bottom, it could create some real problems if it doesn't stick very well!
    • Sure wakes ya up when nodding off and that reel goes ZINGGGG!!
    • lol sugar coat it all you want Nick the Gophers are a 7th best team in the Big 10 period. They don't have a meaningful win this entire season and they didn't beat any other team in the big 10 with a winning record except for Northwestern who are 5-4 in conference play but 6-6 overall. That isnt trolling at all, its facts.   I hope they can recruit by selling a trip to the Holiday Bowl this year. Big things happening for the Gophers!
    • that sounds great!!!  they were good pictures too!
    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
