    ( 4 broken ) solas impeller tools

    hey guys, I've broken 4 solas impeller tools already trying to get a solas concord of the shaft, I've tried everything, from 6 foot breaker bars to lots of heat till I cooked the pump seals oops.. I also made one of those fancy tools that use a bottle jack and still no luck, the 4 little feet on the tool just break off clean.

    I heard rumor of a stainless steel impeller tool, does anyone know who makes it or how can I possibly get this prop off without cutting it off with a torch?

    thanks.

    I really don't like two thinks on yamaha platform
    the clutch (too weak on a modded engine)
    and the impeller....
    everytime I want to change an impeller I get crazy
    I pull off the shaft from pump and take it to an mechanical shop
    where my friend try with everything he has in the shop...
    sometimes he cut in half my stucked impeller....
    anyway if someone have a stronger solas tool I'm interestet on buying one or two...
    maybe Jerry can do it for the store...
    I think he will sell many...

    My mate has been doing the same ... broke 3 tools and has cut props off .... it would be cheaper to leave the prop on the shaft and remove shaft from stator ... you just need some spare shafts ... not a solution but a option

    Guys, everyone should be using this dual washer between the pump and impeller otherwise you will continue to suffer with stuck impellers and broken tools

    Press the shaft out. Make a tool to grab the prop from the back. There are some ribs inside the hub where you can grab it from

    The R &D dual washer is a must with a aftermarket prop....the prop tool are too weak....that's why they break off.
