Well, after running my spectra 20 for about six years I decided to overhaul the pump. I am going to replace the intake being it has a good size crack in it and the fins are half gone! I think the past owners were crack heads and never stored it properly over the winters. Lots of debris under the floor and seats rotting out.
OK, on to the good stuff I found today! Removed the bowl and it looks kind of hammered! Let me know if its ok to run or if I should replace it? Pics to follow! When I bought it the guy said he had sucked up some rocks and his buddy rewelded the impeller! Ya, great! Of course I have a new one to put in but when I went to take it off tonight, the nut was finger tight and so I removed the nut and impeller with my hands! The shaft looks good but I thought I would need a puller to get it off?
Should the new impeller go on tight? Like a press fit? Kind of a fun project if you ask me! These pumps are so simple, and quick to take apart! Love it!
