Peter, thanks for the tips. Interesting read about the impeller and it makes sense, was going to have a look whether it makes more sense to get the impeller kit or use separate parts. I don't like leaving things in other people's hands, whether its my car or boat engine and going on their word that they've done the work you get charged for. Unfortunately too many people in Malta have made too much money from charging customers for work that wasn't done and parts that weren't replaced.

I like to be there and watch/assist as the work is done on my engine which also gives me peace of mind when I'm 15nm offshore that the engine was serviced properly.

@Thomas thanks for the pic with the last service info. Gives me a good basis for comparison.

Neil, just check prices to compare kit or separate. Kit has impeller, top and bottom gaskets, face plate, key, o-ring seals for the connector tube and gearbox oil seals. Works out a lot cheaper than all separate but up to you if you want to change it all. Think it's about 35 quid ish ex vat for the kit from memory.
