Re: need some help

400 for the impeller in your water pump? ouch..

It's a fairly simple job, especially on older motors, if you're comfortable dropping the lower unit.. I did it a few times on my older johnson. JLC in Elizabethtown is a great shop for older 'rude and johnson motors.. I'm not sure what kind of cost you'd be looking at, but I'd be surprised if it's more than an hour of labor, and very minimal part costs.

Re: need some help

sounds high to me. I just had a new impeller installed in my mid 70's Chrysler along with going over the motor and cleaning the carb for $360 at a local shop.

Re: need some help

Its an easy job. 30 min tops. Sometimes impeller is real tight to shaft. A gear puller with some utility wire attached to it and wrapped around impeller does trick. Most impellers come marked with direction. A little grease on impeller tips make it easy to slip in. Just turn shaft when pitting housing on and it goes in nice and smooth.
