[flash=200,200]I?m considering changing the impeller on my 90 hp Mercury outboard myself. It is not giving me any trouble, but it?s 3 years old and the owners manual says it needs to be replaced. I have been reading about the procedure in my shop manual and it doesn?t seem to be too hard but I was wondering if anybody had any thoughts on the subject.

I just had mine changed for the first time and it's a 1979 motor! They told me 5 years is about the right time to change it, I got 25. Alot of factors need to be looked at , salt or fresh water? alot of sand or mud? is it still pumping strong or getting weak? how good are you with a wrench? if good, it shouldn't be to hard. Be shure you have all the parts in hand before you start and good luck

I change mine out every other year at the most. A lot of Merc owners change there's after every season. Now that I'm running a large engine I'll do it every year. It's such an easy change, that you can do yourself,there's no reason not to do it.
