    Help Cant get impeller off Ultra 150 Pump

    Ok so as the thread title suggests, I have the pump off my ski and disassembled to the point of getting the impeller off.

    It won't come off.

    I've already snapped a vice trying to hold the shaft, tried heating it with a propane torch. Took it to a buddy of mine yesterday and we heated it RED HOT with an oxy-acetylene torch and neither a breaker bar or impact gun could get it to budge. We were speechless. It is now sitting in a bucket of oil in hopes that will loosen it up. I'm skeptical of that happening at best. Any ideas?

    ...anyone..?..

    I find it surprising that nobody else has ever had a hard time getting an impeller off...

    I had that problem on an sxr pump and the answer was to break the shaft and buy a new impeller and shaft.

    I had the same problem on an 2000 Ultra I had years ago. I took a die grinder with some cut off wheels and started hacking away at it. It took a little while but finally got it off. I still had to replace the shaft and impeller

    Good luck!! Salt water is just pure evil. May as well drive these things around in battery acid.

    I have several salt water destroyed pump, shaft, impeller combos if anyone is interested. I consider them "garage art". Not good for much else!
