Any tips on getting an old Impeller out? I cannot get the thing to budge? The motor is a Chevy LT1 in a 1993 Prostar

Elbow grease, flathead, Needle nose pliers. Go HAM on it.

I've tried everything but the HAM :) Wife says we need it for dinner.

Yea - I hear Yah - I pre-treated mine - will get it the next round.
I was under pressure to keep it alive vs tear it up.

So special sauce was applied.

spray a little wd40 and remove the safety lanyard. bump the starter a couple of times and about done!

After much looking at tools / options - Sherwood impeller design somehow got missed in this application with threaded portion of impeller hub bore for simple insert of bolt puller.
I'm sure the V drive sport fans would like.
