I have 1989 prostar 190 with 351 windsor. I need to know how to remove impellar from pump.

I have found needle nose vice grips to work pretty well. New impeller comes with some sort of lubriicant.

Mine just slipped right out with needle nose pliers. They are directional when it comes to front or back. Pay attention.

You can also try a couple of paint can openers. Be sure to pay attention like oldairboater says as they are directional. It also doesn't hurt to put a drop or two of dishwashing soap on the outer edges...makes it slide right in. Put it on the spline and give it a little twist in the correct direction as you are installing.
