I have read through everything I could find on here about the VP raw water pump issues people have dealt with on the SX-M platform and I think i have exhuasted all options save for replacing the entire pump. The only thing i can think of prior to that is to "face" the inlet/outlet plate as i has a tiny amount of wear. When I replaced the impeller i didn't think that small amount of wear would stop it from working at all? I put clear tubing before and after the pump and can clearly see it is not sucking water and pushing through the pump. I connected garden hose to inlet side to lower unit and it flows freely so no blockage, and I just replaced the seals for the copper tube which was perfect as well. Anyone else run into this issue with a new impeller?
