I agree if you can cut a grove in it to the shaft. Just like removing stubborn berring races on a trailer.

Re: Stuck Impeller

I just had to use a dremel tool to get the hub out of my old 9.8 Merc outboard waterpump. Worked well.

Another aproach

put two rags on the edge of the impeller housing so you don't damage the edge. Jam two larger flat head screwdrivers, opposite each other into the impeller barrel based (as close as you can) at an angle and against the rags. At the same time, push down of the screwdrivers to pry off the impeller. I couldn't pull mine off by the other methods, but this method popped it right off.
If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.
