Greetings,

Sometime I would like to replace the impeller in my Chicken with an aftermarket. I have the new impeller but I've been looking for step by steps on how to do it. My understanding is that the pump needs to be removed and can be a bit tricky since, besides it being bolted onto the hull, it's also glued or siliconed? Once the pump is out, it looks pretty straight forward as long as you have a vice and that special tool.

Questions:

1. Does this have a wear ring that I should replace the same time I'm doing the impeller?
2. What product does one use to "reglue" the pump back onto the hull?
3. What is the torque setting one should use when installing the replacement impeller?
4. Is there anything else, maintenancewise I should do while I have the pump removed?

Thanks!
