Rocks stuck in impeller
Posted 08 September 2013 - 10:45 PM
Any tips will be greatly appreciated. I plan to take appart what I can to get them off tomorrow after work.
My boat has the 240 EFI Mercury. The impeller looks straight for what I can see and the wear ring seems to be good.

The spark plug trick works well on the 1503 Rotax engine but not so well for the Mercury since it has too many rotating parts. You need to pull the pump off from the back to get the rocks out. There is no wear ring on a mercury so check the clearance between the impeller and housing carefully. .013 or less is good.
