Mr. Firefly, you ask a good question. I assumed (and yes, I know what that means...) that the Jabsco impellers I have are already threaded on the inside. I have quite a few replacement impellers aboard, so I might have to open one, see if it has threads, and put into a ziplock for long term - I hope - storage.

And I just replaced both main impellers last year about this time, so I didn't bother to even look if they were threaded. At that time I used a combination of needle nose pliers, screw drivers and four letter words to get the darn things out. I figure if I need to do that again while underway or in the boonies somewhere, I would rather have a puller on hand.

So maybe I should ask a follow up question: do the $40 Sea Dog type impeller pullers work well?

Thanks!
