thats the ticket thanks, worked well, but got myself into a jam with putting a new waterpump in, having trouble lining up shift rod and copper waterline while getting the driveshaft engaged too.

there a trick to it?

turn the motor upside down or something?

what a pain keeping all three in line and getting that copper back intot he boot on the waterpump.

sorry I tackled this impeller replacement, that was a cinch but what a pain getting this lined back up!

thanks for any first hand knowledgeable help.
