    Question on Solas impeller install 17/29 R-12x

    I'm trying to figure out what the little blocker in the middle of the stock impeller is and how do I get it out if I need to transfer it to the solas impeller? What is it for? Do I install the impeller and then fill from the cone with gear oil?

    Freaking stealership last year rebuilt my pump and guess what... my stock impeller was way loose. I thought I'd have to crank on it to get it to bust free, but nope... one little turn and it started to back right off. Geez. Glad I decided to swap impellers.

    One last note, how many drops of red loctite do I put on the threads for the impeller?

    First pic is the solas, you can see my finger nail in the back.

    its called a Stopper Plug, use a screwdriver to push it out from the back side once the prop is off.
