Was wondering what tool was needed to get this off, does one need a impact wrench?
if your talkin'bout the water pump, i held the impeller with channel locks. theres not alot of torque on it. just be careful not to ding it up
does one need a impact wrench?
Yikes! Don't do anything heavy handed to the impeller shaft. You'll snap the drive tab off the inboard end!
You are supposed to remove the case and hold the inside end with a wrench on a pair of flats provided for the purpose. Then, you can inspect the shaft for a wear groove under the seal. You'll want to do this if you're removing it to replace a seal. If you're just upgrading the impeller, you could do it by holding the impeller as suggested, but you'll want to be very careful about installing your new one.
