The SpeedSeal impeller covers are a god-send if you're in a hurry. Unfortunately, not all diesels are designed to be able to fit one...so you will have to double check before getting it. On one really dumb designed engine I've seen, the waterpump is in the way, and basically needs to be removed before the impeller can be changed out... UGH.... they should make the damn engineers work as mechanics for a month on what they design. I am willing to bet we'd find things designed for far better servicability then.
BTW, you really should invest in some Globe
impellers... they're cheap insurance in many ways. The link I posted for the Globe impellers requires you know the dimensions of the impeller you need though.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
