Cummins 6BTA 5.9 45 Min Impeller swap

Call me a happy camper. A couple of years ago I had my Cummins raw water pump replaced with a Seaboard Marine pump. This was the first time I replaced the raw water pump Impeller. What a great pump/Impeller design. Take off the cover plate. Twist lock the Impeller puller and 4 minutes with a racket wrench the Impeller is out.
Just make sure the new Impeller goes in with the puller Wings facing out. Click image for larger version

Ditto here. Also, I removed the fuel cooler per Tony Athens. Made accessing the pump for impeller changes much easier.

I was thinking about doing that. What area / water temperatures do you cruise in? Im in Florida with 88 degree summer waters.

Maine. But email or talk with Tony Athens. I got the impression that his position is that the cooler is not needed on a recreational boat that isn't running hard all day. But I may misremember.

I just replaced the impeller on my SeaMax (Seaboard Marine) water pump yesterday... 30 minutes, and not rushing. I will also remove the fuel cooler with the Seaboard kit sometime this year.
