With those bent nose pliers a piece of scrap wood or plastic, thin, would prevent the dings.

Just something to watch out for.
Good suggestion, I had an old wooden yardstick that I cut into 4" pieces. I keep a couple with my spare impellers and special pliers. The impellers pop right out and the housing remains pristine.

I use these pliers from Bayshore Marine Engines.
