Mariner 30hp 2 stroke - impeller change

My first time trying to change the impeller on this engine, a 2000 vintage Mariner 30 2 stroke (carb).

The gear selector rod seems to be held together by a joint and dowel pins (parts 22 and 23 here: Mariner 30 HP (2 CYL.)(International) Drive Shaft Housing Parts).

Not sure where I've put my owner's handbook - whats the accepted method of separating the gear linkage on this engine so I can drop the gear casing?

Are you meant to try and drive out these little dowel pins, or disconnect the linkage in the cowling under the carb?

Thanks,

Paul

Hi Paul

This is the same as my 20hp undo the 10mm nut under the carb.All will become clear.Also double check for any washers on rod you don't seem to have one on the picture but check.

Super, thanks Dave!

A shame I only just stripped and refitted the carb a few weeks back...

Finally got round to doing this today, in between rebuilding the end of the boom for the sailing yacht!

Was a bit of a pain to get at, but with carb, starter motor and electrical panel all removed, I could finally undo the nut one flat at a time (as there's no space to actually move the spanner), disconnect the gear linkage and drop the leg… (the same nut was also a right pain to get back on again - no room to manoeuvre).

The existing impeller seemed fine, but having taken it all apart and not knowing it's age, fitted a new one anyway.

Sadly whilst the engine starts and idles beautifully after the carb clean, still not pumping any water (despite being fine a few weeks ago!). I did blow through it with an airline while all apart, and all the passages seemed clear. Will have to work through everything again - given it's very low usage (has been owned by us from new), hopefully nothing serious!

Hi all

Have a look at the parts print out there seems to be a locating clip and nut 42 and 41 if not done already .

Is there any trick to lining it up or checking it Graham? I must admit, I didn't explicitly check it, as I kind of assumed if the gear selector and drive shaft all lined up, then surely the water pickup was lined up as well! I shall disassemble and check next weekend… The woodruff key was definitely in as well, but I will double check it is doing it's job and the impeller is spinning properly if it's all coming apart again. This is all much easier on my little 6hp Johnson!

Hmmm, I don't think I touched the retaining clip/nut as I only dropped the gear box and didn't touch the water pipe going down the leg, but shall definitely double check it!

Will do - sadly I'm in London this week, but hoping to be back with the engine at the weekend and should then have some time to try again!
