Need to route the edges to allow for some fitment and make it look cleaner but not bad for the first cut out

first time out today at Elsinore. Something definitely wasn't right with the pump. The bowl is chewed up inside and the impeller is trash. Looks like someone ran it through some shallow water and sucked up a bunch of rocks. Found a golf ball sized rock wedged in the impeller. First time jet boat owner problems. Took a guys word for it and didn't a look at the pump myself. Guess it's time to upgrade. B.O.A.T.

OUCH, sorry to hear that, never take anyone's word on anything when it comes to a used boat.  Too many shady peeps out there. :thumbdown:

The CP 19 got
New control cables and swapped out the old 1973 style nozzle for the Place FTN. Went with the 3 1/16" turquoise insert. That's what the guys at Place Diverter recommended. Any one else running a different insert on there winger?
Happy boating 👍

Turquoise is what B-1 installed in mine, my brothers and my buddies, all 19' gullwings. Its seams like that's what everyone is running that ive seen.

And the inlet side.

Do I need a puller to get the impeller off?

man.....that hurts.   :banghead:

ive seen videos of pump rebuilds....the nut holding impeller on can be tough to break loose....but i dont recall a puller. 
not to say you wont need one tho....

good luck with it....

I got the nut off, but the impeller is on there good. It has a little shoulder in the back like you find on the front if a pulley. I won't mess with it if I need a puller.

On a positive note, I found a nearly complete pump for $400. Going to look at it tomorrow or Saturday and pick it up to build or have as a spare. Or if it is good enough I will stick it in the boat and complete build/rebuild this one over time.

Bought a second boat. Going to NorCal to pickup now. Don't judge, I know it's a Bayliner.  Hondo may be for sale soon. Still looking for a Southwind 18 that is medium blue and silver. Must be original gel. The last pic is exactly like the boat I'm looking for. That is what I grew up in.

A puller is typically required to remove the impeller.  A 3-jaw puller is recommended but I use a lot of heat and a 2-jaw on all of the pumps I have rebuilt.  If you do decide to break it down yourself, make sure to reassemble with anti-seize to make life easier for the next go around.  Give it a shot, it's easier than it looks if you have the tools.

I will be doing the work for sure. I'll grab a 3 jaw from my friend and pull the impeller this weekend then strip the shaft, seals and bearings. Going to pick up another pump right now as well.
