What happens when you do not change the impellor ?

Ta da,
Bought this of a local dive club they purchased the rib from new.

Serviced it the first year and there after abused it for 9-years, they never serviced it nor cleaned It. well looks like its never seen fresh water + soap,

Best boat decals I have ever seen in my life, the boat name was painted onto the hull with a 2 paint brush,

They heard the alarm sound shortly after launching, there words not mine, I heard the alarm did not know what it was so gunned it back to land for safety!!! (Kid you not) -

Any way pics,

Striped due to seizure as water pump shafted, (lots of bits)
Bores scored and pistons up the swanny
+30 thou hone job now done, (bores looking good now)
Decoke exhaust chamber / remove all bad castings whilst in there, bit of a mod,
heads cleaned ready for surface grind and to be repainted after chemically cleaning.

I was advised by my Yam outboard dealer to not change the impellor if water flow is good and there's no other issues. The materials used last much longer than in the past so if it isn't broke then don't...

this impellor worked fine the previous outing then did not next time,

prevention is far better than the cure in my eye's

and a shed load cheaper-- impellor change 20 if done ur self 100--ish by dealer

engine build sh#t loads if you do it ya sen, or double/trippple that if done by a marine dealer
