Customer:

The one in the first pic is the one. is there a way for me to send you a pic of what it looks like?

esequiel walker :

look at the water pump where the belt goes around the pulley the part of the pump on the shaft has a allen wrench screw on it holding it to the shaft

esequiel walker :

if its the one on the first pic then after those clamps it just pulls upward may be jammed after long usage

esequiel walker : [email protected] send it to my email address
Customer:

Kinda got it. ill send you some pics so we are on the same page.

esequiel walker :

ok

Customer:

Sent some pics. What you are looking at is the impellers on the inside of the pump. I broke away the plastic housing. The tray is still on there and in good shape. It looks bad in the pics, but it is ok.

esequiel walker :

hi

esequiel walker :

ok yes now just wedge that left over piece upwards

esequiel walker :

get leverage between it and the shaft and raise upwards may be hard been there for a while

esequiel walker :

break away that tray also if you have a new one in route wont hurt any thing
