    Default Bowl cleanup?

    Is it a good idea to clean up the leading edges and rough spots at the bowl veins or should i leave that to the pros?
    Im talking just simple clean up, nothing crazy and detailed.

    Also what size wrench does it take to get the impeller nut off?

    Thanks..

    Trevor.

    Bowl cleanup is fairly easy, there's a lot of casting flash that can be smoothed, and blend the center to the nut. I wouldn't get too caried away with the leading edge without further guidance. The exit can really be cleaned up.

    sure its pretty easy. 1-13/16" with an offset in the handle to clear the impeller if your striking it with a dead blow hammer. Is the pump still in the boat and hooked up to the motor?

    Well i was in the process of getting my impellor cut from a A to AB to match the Hp curve, never got around to doing that so now seams like a good time.
    While apart the bowl looks stock and crude casting.

    I always clean all the edges and keep then square, you will need a socket 1 13/16

    Hopefully you're not trying to do it at the river with limited tools and a jet-a-way
