    Mod for water pump shaft removal without welding for open loop mod

    So you don't have to screw your PTO cover by welding up the water pump shaft hole, here is another solution.

    Or you could just tap in a brass frost plug!!!
    and then you can knock it out if you want to go back to closed loop.

    no, you remove the shaft and cut it down so that its not sticking thru thru the PTO.

    Nah I agree, it does get rid of the rusty shaft issue which can cause issues but I just run with the impeller nut installed no issues to-date.

    When I ran my open loop I just took a rubber vaccum cap, filled it with silicone and pushed it on. When I decided to take the open loop off I just removed the vaccum cap and peeled the silicone off the threads.....Perfect condition, no rust at all!! Just another way to do it and it was cheap
