Default bravo 3 sea watet impeller

what is the risk to change the impeller with the boat in the water do I have to be ready to plug the lines on the pump (sea water pump bravo3) or if I lift the leg to trailer position will that do ???thanks.

not really sure....I would clamp it off just to be safe..use a vice grip to clamp it down....don't do it too hard or it will crush the hoses....it can be done..but it would be best done out of the water..

Wouldn't changing the impeller invlove dropping the lower unit? Im sure it can (and has) been done while the vessel is still in the water... but I would think it would be a real pain in the arss! Just a few risks I can think of are; your lower end inadvertantly becomes an anchor, you create an oil sheen that prompts a call to a hazmat team, and you have water intrusion in the housing when you reassemble. :shock:

the b3 drive has it's rwp on the stbd side of the engine and is driven by the belts....

so..the only thing you have to secure is either a hull valve or a hose that is from the outdrive....

ahhh... thanks SP. Sounds a lot easier than getting at the impeller on an Alpha1.
