    Default 1996 merc xr6 150 impeller question?

    hello everyone,

    im getting ready to put a new impeller and water pump in my 1996 mercury 150 xr6. i have always taken the boat to a mechanic for this but im tired of paying close to two hundred dollars for a forty dollar kit to be installed. any pointers on removing the lower unit on my motor? or does anyone know of a web site which might show the steps to changing out an impeller and water pump? any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    Water pumps impellers and housings are reasy to change. I found this to be useful:

    The photos in the above link are very good. Gives you a pretty good idea as to what is involved. Of course, you also should have the shop manual for your motor so that you know exactly what parts are involved, the specific steps appropriate for your particular motor, torque specifications, etc. A Mercury OEM manual is the best manual but the other brands (e.g., Seloc) are OK too for basic maintenance stuff like this.
