1973 Spring Refresh

I've had my 73 Mastercraft for about 3 years ago, and we've pretty much just used it as we got it with the exception of installing perfect pass a couple of years ago and its starting to show signs of needing some love.

This winter I worked on polishing up the gel coat. I also managed to track down a used windshield to replace my cracked one.

My list for this spring is:
Oil Change
Replace Spark plugs
Replace Impeller
Oil Platform
Polish Windshield
Install Windwhield
Finish FAE Install
Repair Engine Cover Vinyl
Adjust Throttle/Trans Cables
Replace steering cable
Replace Steering Wheel
Replace Valve Covers
Replace Flag Stickers
clean interior

I've been gathering parts over the last month or so and my goal is to make a bunch of progress this week so that we can try to get on the water next week.

Had just barely been able to read the Part number for the raw water pump on the housing, but nothing on google turned up an associated impeller part number. I pulled the pump and skidim was able to find me the equivalent impeller.
Pump is a Thermo Electron PN 97221.
Old Impeller was a Jabsco 920-0003 which is apparently replaced by 17937-0001P.

Hopefully that will be the right fit.
