Anyone changed the impeller on this? I am running 170 after a day of boarding at 5 mph when my buddy is running 120. I'm decent with a wrench on a car, oil changes, radiator swaps, brakes.
I don't know what option I have when looking up the part it had a bunch of alphas and bravos. It's a 97 ski brendella pro comp direct drive.
I read up on how to do it on other boats. But my water pump doesn't look like I can move it to loosen the belt. there is a pulley on top that looks like I can move it. Also how do i tighten it back up? Just push the pulley that moves until the belt is as tight as I can get it then tighten the bolt?
As for the impeller change I just take off the cover from the front of the pump pull the impeller, zip tie the new impeller to close the teeth and slide it in, replace the cover?
Pulley above the water pump I think I can loosen to loosen the belt:
