I also lost an impeller, again, easily repaired. My only complaint and the only problem not self-inflicted, is the idle wont stay put at lower RPMs. It either dies or raises. This has proven to be problematic in tight spots when it stalls. But it's been a really good engine other than that.

Have your carb professionally cleaned, and your idle should stabilize.
