One of the local charter captains in our marina routinely swaps the whole water pump every year. His "old" one goes home where he can easily replace the impeller on the bench.

The pump on my Hinos have to be removed to change out the impeller because the engine mount is behind it & there isn't enough clearance to get it out of the housing. After 3+ years of searching I bought a used pump to swap out when it's impeller time. I would of bought a new pump but the cost was almost $1400.00. My reason is that I can remove and replace without having to crawl in and out of the bilge twice and if one fails during a cruise all I have to do is install the impeller & end plate & swap it out, I won't leave it in the spares with a impeller in it.

Success! went to Harbor Freight and bought some 11in long pliers with a 90 degree turn at the nose. The jaws opened wide enough to slide between the vanes and with the long handle there was plenty of space to tap with a hammer and it slid straight off. Only $ 7.00 invested.
