In the spring I installed a new impeller on my raw water pump (Universal M25 with Oberdorfer pump). I did this because the vanes on the old impeller were cracked (impeller was installed some time before 2006 when I bought the boat).
Today I started the engine and noticed very little water flow out the back. After I removed the cover I saw that most of the impeller blades had cracked and / or torn off.
I have another spare, but I'm hesitant to install it, since I don't know how long it's been sitting around.
Who makes the best impellers for this engine? I see that Defender sells a Neoprene unit for $28, and various models from Globe that are 'run dry' and much more expensive (about $55).
I don't care about the price, I just want the best impeller. Any suggestions?
