Default Impeller location on Mercuiser 5.0 V8 Bravo 3 ?

I have a 2008 Maxum 2900SE with twin Mercruiser 5.0's (Seacore w/ Axius) and Bravo 3 stern drives.

Does anyone know where the impeller's are located? Are they inboard mounted to the motor assembly or outboard w/ the drive units?

All Bravos use inboard raw water umps. Yours are mounted below the alternator.

Looking at your picture, Raw Water Pump is the pulley lower left below the alternator at the very bottom of the engine as mmwjr said.

On my old 496, the pump was in the same location (as said earlier, lowest pulley to the far left.). I honestly found it easier to remove the pump, split the pump on a bench and replace the impellor, then reassemble and reinstall.

It also gives you a chance to inspect the hose clamps.
