RE: speed seal

Phill, next time you change an impeller here is a way that helps me, wrap a nylon cable tie around the impeller zip tighten it in stages while squeezing the vanes. The nylon tie will hold it compressed so you can slide it partway into the pump housing, snip the tie and shove it in the rest of the way. lubing it with soap or soapy water will help.
Good Luck

Why didn't I think of that?
Thanks, I'll give that a try.

RE: speed seal

Make sure the vanes are bent in the correct direction. I spray with silicone before inserting, and the wire tie slips right off after the impeller is in place. No need to cut.

Really doesn't matter which way the vanes are facing - they sort themselves out.*** I just*sort of push/rotate*the impeller part-way in by hand and then tap it in with a hammer.
