    Default Impeller Puller

    I am looking at buying an impeller puller to make my life a lot easier. I found two puller online, one by
    Sea-Dog Stainless Steel Impeller Puller for $44.99 and Jabsco Flexible Impeller Puller for $89.99. Can anyone tell me if the Sea-Dog SS Impeller puller is worth the money or just spend the extra money for the Jabsco puller?

    Yikes... Instead of $50-90 I'm thinking something like this along with a little WD-40 would do the trick.

    Unless you plan to be pulling a lot of impellers.

    Spray the impeller shaft with WD40, pull the coil wire off, bump the motor over a few times, then I use 2 paint can openers to pull it out....

    Mine new one always seems to come with a little packet of silicone lube to lube it up for reinstall.

    I used the dual vice grip method, oil, bump, install two pairs of vice grips 180 degrees from each other and pull like hell...sometimes it may not be useable as a back up when it gets out but it gets it out...
