Anyone ever use one of these to pull their impeller? Looks like it will work, may need a bit of grinding on the clamps.

Definitely need to grind the clamps. I'm wondering if they would have enough force to hold onto the impeller, if you can't get behind it, as you turn the knob to pull it out. My puller has thumb screws on the clamps to tighten them into the impreller so it gets a good grip. Looks like a good cheaper alternative if it works.

Personally a set of those paint can openers work really well for like 2 bucks you slip one in both sides and just haul it out.

I'd guess the arms will bend before the prop pops....

The faucet puller may work with a lot of modification. The arms would have to be ground down to nubs and sharpened so they'd bite well into the rubber, or they'd have to be thin enough to get behind the impeller between it and the back of the pump housing. And they would have to fit not only between the impeller and pump housing, but also between the vanes of the impeller itself.

pulling the R/W Impeller I believe is the intended use.

I would agree, this is for the impeller, not going to pull another one without help, such a pain on the V-drive.

Finally, a pic of what I've tried to describe here many times! (The pic probably didn't transfer here, though) Two of those have yet to fail me. One does work, but 2 are better. Bigmac, you said you have no room on a V-drive to pull straight back, but could you use one of these and then stick a big screwdriver through the loop part to act as a lever to pop it off? Just curious.

I use allen wrenches. They are strong and seem to work perfectly. Anytime I have had resistance I use the vice grips to hold the allen. :D

I purchased something very much like that (a valve puller)& found out it would not work to pull the impeller as the tow bar is in the way! :(
