HELP! Salt Water Pump


Sounds as if you''ve got ten thumbs. You''ve most likely dislodged the drive key in the shaft. This is probably preventing you from seating the impeller. The end of the shaft normally has a flat on it; this is how it is driven. It mates with one of the timing gears on the front of the engine that has a mating flat receptor. Hire a mechanic.
