    regular threads counter clockwise will get the impeller off.

    No problem... I use a long 3/4" drive cheater on both the spline tool and the 12mm hex.

    I use a big ass pipe wrench on the pump tool side - mine is big enough I can step on it on the floor of the garage and twist the allan. If you do this make sure you put either a rug or towel between the impeller and the concrete. Not the best way of doing it I know but it works for me.

    No vise ? Man you guys are trying to turn that into hard work.

    Some of the guys have mounted the spline tools to the receiver style trailer hitches. That may be a decent option for those without a vise.

    Okay thanks again....i got it. my neighbor had his garage open and sure enough, he has a vice My makeshift cheater bar was too small, plus no vice, plus wasnt sure about the threads (I was throw'd off since the little cone thingy on the impeller IS reverse threads). Yea, a vice and a good cheater bar = more time for drinking

    aight!

    i have my spline tool welded to a spare reciever hitch, just mount it my truck and breaker bar away.

    It's not bad if you have a vice like grip and hydraulic forearms.
