I believe pliers with long slim jaws will do the job.

Maybe you should prefer the ones with bent jaws. Pyndon made one with a flat sheet of metal with two screws bolted on it.
Cheers.

Rattis- I will take a picture of one I made and post it for you when I get home in a couple hours. It is a simple design, to put it mildly. When you see it, you'll smack your forehead and say duh! But, seeing truly helps put its simplicity into perspective.

I don't think the wheel needs to be re-invented. Look here.

Pyndon is the man.

I don't see why u need the impeller tool. If u take the inside cover off, u can lock the shaft with a big screwdriver and losen the bolt. Vice versa for the mounting.

Unless u want the impeller off for other reason then a WP repair, then i did not say a thing.

I made mine with a piece of left over Acetal. This can be made out of just about anything.

+1 or just hold the back of the shaft with a pair of pliars (wrap the shaft with old innertube).

The only point of the impeller holder is to prevent breaking the mating part on the motor. Once the cover is off, the shaft isn't connected anymore so that risk has gone. Instead do the above. Simple, no tool needed.

This is how i did mine .. (from my coolant flush thread - here) and did no damage to the impeller at all - re used it.

now to remove the impeller retaining screw. There are many "special" tools available for this and you could even fabricate an excellent one el-cheapo using a flat bar of aluminium/steel and two set of bolt/nuts, but i found another way to do it. The impeller has two holes in it to use the special KTM tool hold it in place while you loosen the retaining screw. I spread open a nose plier wide enough to serve this purpose. voila


just be carefull to put enough pressure on the nose plier while you are loosening the impeller retaining screw, so that the pliers don;t slip and damage the impeller.


hold the impeller using the KTM toolkit pliers and the nose plier, i used a rag to cover the impeller blades while using the pliers on it, without which it would obviously damage them. It however, doesn't show in the below pic cos i couldn't do a good enough re-enactment

Talking Tack så mycket

Thank you very(above in Swedish) much indeed lads.
If you were here I'd kiss you all, mind you no tongue though
The wisdom here is great, so please tell me if i need to bring any screws along for the ride.
I have decided on a lengthy trial run in California, hopefully including Red Bluff to Eureka.
So if you see a very tall guy on a little adventure with the odd Swedish flag, that's me
