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.

    • Try going over to this thread. Rock & Edibles-Agates-Fossils-Artifacts-Mushrooms-Ginseng-Gems-etc. There is some discussion taking place under Morels' 2018 already.
    • Guys and Gals, I have searched high and low and have found none at all this spring.  Anyone have an success.  I am guessing it is too dry.  Will they still pop?  Any advise? "Set the Hook", Flash  
    • Wow, my spots are way behind this year. Had hoped to find a bunch before this coming long weekend for a big family Walleye and Morel fry but have only found 5 small grays so far. Just not seeing the ground cover growing very much yet and have saw no other types of mushrooms which seem to grow first pop up yet. This is a very late year so far.
    • No, shes not but on a paper thin rotted floor your kitty would fall through. I can see why she worried.  I didn't because it wasn't on my side!!
    • Yep, OTC. I wouldn't mind seeing some on beds. Seems like I usually get there just as the largemouth are wrapping up.
    • I have a group of bachelor drakes on the pond this year.  The pond water level is high so there is flooded timber. A great combo for photography.                                  
    • Well I had a little project that we found after buying our camper used. It had a leak in the back corner which 3 other same type campers in our camp ground had in the same spot. I sealed the roof a few years ago but have not had time to tackle the soft floor in that corner. Spent one weekend ripping out to find out what I had and a 3 day weekend repairing it. Had to build boxes as new supports to tie into the good wood past the rotted area. Really glad there were two metal frame supports under that end as I could span them with the new wood. Re-insulated and put new plywood down and it's looks great. Now my wife doesn't have to worry about getting into her side of the bed without going through the floor!        
    • Well I guess I could close the loop on my water heater since I finally had time to look at it.     I haven’t pulled the element yet but have filled the water and run through everything with my meter.  I’m 99% sure it’s the element.  I have 120V to it and it Ohms out at 2.  I figure that’s the water giving me that reading since the elements should Ohm out at 10 or more.  Basic rule I learned in shop: Power to the load; load don’t work; load is broken.  Looks like a $15 part.   What I did enjoy learning is getting the propane part of the heater operational.  Never had that before since the wire harness was apparently always disconnected from the ignition module.  I plugged that in and she fired right up.   Now to get my sealants put on tomorrow and clean and lube the bumpout gaskets.  I bought some LED light bulbs to try also.  And time to get a bigger TV installed in the main living area.  That 13 inches just doesn’t cut it with my eyes anymore!
