Wow.
Never even thought of that.

I definatly started the gen multiple times ( around 8 times) where it would run from 3-10 seconds.
I'm pissed at myself for not taking a better look.
This will be the 4th impeller change on the generator this year.
Except, looks like I'll be doing this one. And good call on the water pump.
The last mechanic said there was a very small drip from it and it should be changed out in the future.
