    Default Question on 200 Optimax jet impeller removable

    I have a sport jon w/ 200 Optimax jet, I need to pull off the impeller and have it reworked as it is pretty dull!......I pulled off the nozzle and am looking right at the impeller, but can’t get it off. Looks to me like a need a 4’’ plus deep well socket.

    What size of socket do I need and where can I buy one?....I have a 1/2 impact wrench.

    Also where is a good place to have my impeller rebuilt? In the valley or Anchorage?

    THX for any help guys,

    Dave

    its a specailized socket. An off size At that. They sell it at marita. Its like 80 bucks or so. A-1impeller is who I took mine too. Had it back in a couple days. They send there stuff to the guy in the valley. Can't think of the name of the place. If you can't find a socket and your in anchorage shoot me a pm.

    The size is 1 13/16. I borrowed one this year but am going to get one made. Mine took a little persuading to get it off. I wound up heating the impeller some with a propane torch while keeping wet rags around the shaft to keep it cool. This was after soaking overnight with WD-40. Then was able to get behind and tap it out with a block of wood. Hopefully yours will come right out but thought I'd offer in case it's a little stuck. Good luck. Not to insult your intelligence, but you'll need to hold the shaft with a 1 1/8 wrench up through the stomp grate. You already have the whole thing pretty much apart, but here's a really well written guide to the annual sport jet service.

    don't forget to grease your shaft so you can get it off easily next time...
