Re: destroyed impeller

Not real familiar with that engine, but if there's an end plate you might get lucky by simply opening up the intake end and finding the remaining bits stuck there rather than having found their way into the tube bundle... If you can account for all the bits you're good to go.

Oh.. and you've heard of the trick of storing the engine key on the through hull valve handle????
