  • Water pump Impeller removal?

    i picked up a new water pump seal for my #527070 pump
    and i was wondering if there are any tricks for removing the impeller?

    do i only have to remove the clip and press it out?

    and the seal was easy toget
    i just went to a local pump rebuilder(not an automotive one)
    and it looks like its a standard pump seal

    i have already looked at http://www.studebaker-info.org/tech/...wpc1/wpc1.html

    it does look straight forward i just dont want to break it

      Tricks for removing the impeller.

      Here's what I did, I had to relieve the back of the jaws to fit inside the housing. Also, I gently washed the flame from a bottle torch over the central part of the impeller.

      My purpose was to adjust the distance from the flange to the corner of the fins, but pulling it would be the same.
