    Yes. I usually put the impeller on the shaft first, the press the housing over it while turning the driveshaft clockwise. A bit of dishsoap for lube helps.

    I put a large zip tie around the fins and tighten it down. Once I get the impeller half way in, I cut the zip tie off and push it all the way in. Definitely use the dish soap though.
