As already mentioned, I prefer to remove the water pump from the motor to replace the impeller. My charter boat originally had a B Cummins, now a C Cummins, so I understand tight spaces. Change my water pump now annually. It's easier to do it on a work bench. Part of the exercise is looking for wear on the internal parts and spinning the shaft without the impeller, to check for bearing play.
