5.7 Ilmor Raw Water Impeller Change How-to

I just started changing out the raw water impeller on my 2014 X2 with the 5.7L. I made a video because I could not find anything out there video-wise, and a lot of people talking about how hard it is to get at. It took about 5 minutes to get it out, never having done it before. So attached is the video.

Much easier than the older x2 with the mcx. Thanks for the vid.

Nice job. Do you happen to have the impeller part number for the raw water as well as the ballast impellers? TIA

Taking it apart wasn't the challenging part for me when doing my friend's 2013. Putting it back together was less than fun. I'd like to know who was the genius that decided going with a removable keyway was a better idea than a spline shaft. Before I do my next one I'm definitely ordering a couple spare woodruff keys to have on hand. I didn't lose the original but Murphy's law would put odds that one get's dropped into the bilge a some time or another and most likely when you can least afford to not have it.

As a side note I used some silicone grease in the keyway to hold the pin in place and that seemed to work well but I really would prefer not to have that added part to deal with if I were changing the impeller out while out on the water and everything moving around.

Great video.

The only suggestion I would make is to not use WD-40. It will prematurely wear out the rear seal. You can achieve the same lubricating affect by using windex and bumping over the engine without starting it. Same with installing the new impeller.

Also, just a heads up, with the jabsco pumps mounted with the impellers up like they are, allow water to leak down into the motors and they will fail prematurely as well. It's a case of easy maintenance or longevity of the electric motor.

Man if only the 6.2L was this easy to change the impellor. The 6.2L requires that the belt and pulley be removed to change the impellor.

Bwag1961, I actually don't know how to winterize yet. I have it in my 60 degree garage in WI for the winter. The dealer I bought it from did the oil/filter/etc this year. Maybe this fall I will find someone that can help and I will make a quick video.
