changing water pump impeller
JA: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.
Customer: when we pulled the lower end down on the drive shaft there is a sleeve on top of impellar housing and it doesnt want to come up the axle shaft
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?
Customer: i looked at a bunch of videos and i didnt see any thing that looked like mine shaft comes out with nothing on it so the water pump housing can slide up and off
