    Default Help with water impeller on 496HO

    Hey guys I think I maybe be needing to replace water impeller. The temp has been running around 200deg in stead of 175deg like it usually does. I would like to get it done before the Vet run but with schedule and shops being busy thinking of doing it myself. I am not a mechanic but I am somewhat handy. What are your thoughts as far as doing it yourself. Accessibility, time, how easy/hard ect. Thanks and any advice will help.

    It all depends on how the builder built the boat. Most of the time the rear bench seat is too close, the compartment you're supposed to climb in is too small and too deep to fit in.
    Changing the impeller is easy, it's getting the housing in and out that'll leave you, sweaty, bloody and pissed off.
    Could also be the housing itself is worn out. End gap tolerance is too big not allowing the pump to work efficiently.

    I've done hundreds of them, I even sell the repair kit to save the $500 pump in case yours is worn out.
    call me if you need help.
