CS34 Impeller Change

When de-winterizing the CS34 this year, I had trouble getting water to go into engine to displace the antifeeze put in last fall.

Had the boat for 9 seasons, and never had a problem.
Time to look at the impeller.

Removed the raw water pump and took it home to look at:

The fins were jammed in the outlet

Luckily I was able to recover all broken off fins.

Also took the time to flush and replace the cooling system antifreeze.

I have not touched this system in the 9 years I have had the boat.

For $30 for impeller, probably should check it yearly.

I also replaced the thermostat while I had the system apart.


This definately solved the white smoke in the exhaust issue
