oberdorfer impeller

Hello,

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?

Thanks,
Barry

Don't forget to find every piece missing. It may become blockage at the worst time, in the worst place........i2f

I just went ahead an bought an OEM impeller for the Oberdorfer on our boat's engine. After researching it, that seemed the best way to go.

You might want to check the brass shoe that is folds the blades back (held in place by a small screw on the outside of the housing). If it is worn funny, there is a chance that it mangled your impeller.

As well, I would check the strainer. It seems unlikely to be destroyed in such a short period of time unless the impeller was poorly made or you picked up something.
