I need some help with impeller on this motor, model esk6600a37 I took it apart today & it was bad, next, how does it come off shaft, also where would I find one, does any other brand interchange with it. impeller has 6 "flappers " contact points
thanks for the reply,the impeller on this motor is a little different, it is only 1/2" long & doesn't have a pin in it, shaft does have hole for pin but it is above housing. it almost looks like impeller is just slipped on shaft,
I cant tell if shaft is stepped and is a little bigger where impeller sets or if impeller has metal insert, but I cant see any type of keeper. I think this motor is a bit newer than one in video, mine has plastic cowl and has 2 bladed prop. Thanks for the help
The impeller source is the same for both types. You just have the short 5 bladed impeller.
Does your impeller housing look like this?
Then you probably need this impeller. This one is 1/2in thick and around an inch and a quarter across the top.
It's been a while since I've had my Eska lower end apart, but I believe the shorter impeller has a notch in the metal core that one end of the loose pin that goes sideways through the shaft rides in. I believe the impeller should just slide off the end of the shaft with a little gentle persuasion. I think that the impeller housing is what holds the impeller in place, which holds the cross pin in the shaft, when the motor is together. I don't remember any steps in the shaft itself, just splines and that hole for the pin.
Hope this helps.
