    08 rxpx VS 09 rxpx pump??

    so i took out my 09 rpxp pump (because i cant sleep at night on this one!!) and compared them side by side with the 08 rxpx pump of course...the 09 impeller shaft is totally different?? has a nut on the end of it??....questions to answer are::
    1- do i take the nut off to get the prop off?? or do I install the piddly piece of stub they left to install in the vice??...no more allen type shaft that the 08 had?
    2- once the impeller is off on the 09....is it interchangable with the 08 impeller??......help would be appreciated!!

    Like JP said. Shaft goes in vise or open end wrench, props are the same.

    Better at what? Think your speeds will be the same with either pump. The 09 pump just looks like they took some steps to make it cheaper to make.

    yah...fair enough...from a design stand point does anyone think there is more stability in the 09 pump once you jam a bunch more power into the engine?...does this nylock nut offer any adjustment on freeplay?? is that why they did this?? anyone?
