Water Pump Repair
Changing your water impeller is good preventative maintenance on your outboard. A water impeller is a series of rubber fins molded around a hub. The water impeller pumps water into your engine to help keep it cool while in use. If your impeller is bad and unable to pump water it will cause problems and your engine to overheat. There are many reasons your impeller can wear out. Sand, little or no use and running it out of water for even just a few seconds can cause damage. No matter how often you use your boat it is recommended your water impeller be changed every 3-5 years.
