We specialize in replacing impellers for all brands of outboard motors. We will try to get you in and out the same or the next day so that you can go fishing or boating without the threat of overheating and ruining your day and ruining your engine.
Be smart; have your impeller changed now or very soon.

NOTE: Your water pump impeller should be changed every 2 years or sooner to prevent serious damage to your engine by overheating. The impeller loses its flexibility between 1 and 2 years after installation. It makes no difference whether you use your motor frequently, occasionally, or rarely. Time is the most important factor.

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!!!!!!! NEVER RUN YOUR MOTOR WITHOUT WATER even for a few seconds. It will destroy your impeller! Use a barrel, deep pail, or "ear muffs" when running your engine on land.

A) If you recently purchased a used motorboat
B) If you recently purchased a used outboard motor
C) If you are sure that the impeller was changed over 2 years ago
D) If you cannot remember when your impeller was last changed
E) If you never heard of an impeller


A) If you see STEAM coming out of the "pee hole" or from the rear of your engine

B) If you notice that your engine is running hot. You cannot touch your running engine without burning your hand.

C) Throw a "handful" of water on to the back of your running engine. If it turns to steam, shut off your motor immediately before damage is done to the cylinders.

D) If you do not see any water being pumped out the "pee hole" or out the back of your outboard motor (after waiting for the thermostat to open, about 10 seconds)).

An impeller is made from neoprene and /or rubber. Its function is to force water from a lake or ocean to circulate through your boat motor to keep it from overheating. The impeller is "squished" (compressed) within a plastic or metal housing. The impeller can then force water to circulate throughout your engine to keep it cool. The housing together with the impeller is called a water pump. THE IMPELLER WILL LOSE ITS FLEXIBILITY AND STRENGTH BETWEEN ONE AND TWO YEARS (since its last installation) after which the impeller will no longer be reliable. Your motor will run hot and severe damage to the cylinders and pistons will result. This usually happens at high speeds and you will not be aware of the problem until after the damage is done. You will probably have to junk your engine when that happens because the cost of repair will probably be more than the engine would be worth even after it is repaired.

Another important issue is: for 2 stroke engines make sure that you have an adequate amount of outboard motor oil mixed with your gas,(usually 50:1 ratio) 2.6 ounces of oil per gallon of gas.( 3 ounces of oil per gallon of gas wouldn't hurt). This ratio applies for outboard motors manufactured after 1965, For older 2 stroke outboards a higher ratio of oil may be required. For 4 stroke engines make sure that your crankcase is full of the recommended motor oil before you start it by checking the dip-stick.
I hope that I have made you aware of the dangers of not timely changing your impeller or not watching the oil requirements of your boat motor. If you need more information or advice you can call: MARTY at 619-972-9998

We also do all other repairs on all brands and sizes of outboard motors.
