Impeller replacement 04 Yammy 40hp

6 posts in this topic

It's time to replace the impeller on my '04 40hp Yammy 2 stroke and I'm seeking help on what parts need to be taken off to get the lower unit free. I've replaced an impeller before, just not on this unit, so If anyone can give me insight as to which bolts (or other parts) need to removed to get at the impeller, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

FOGS

If you've done it before it's fairly similar - put the motor in gear, remove all the visible bolts that connect the lower unit to the midsection (probably 4). Then, remove the trim tab via the bolt on top of it in the mid section and remove the last bolt from under the trim tab.

That's it... remove the housing, replace the water pump and away you go...

Much easier then I had anticipated. 40 minutes tops time to replace the impeller and lube the splines. The last impeller I replaced was on a 2hp Johnson without forward-nuetral-reverse and this impeller replacement felt like it went much better then the last.

Is the purpose of placing the motor in gear to prevent turning of the spline when re-installing the lower unit?

Thanks,

FOGS

The main reason is to help keep your gearcase in the correct gear - forward or reverse. Sometimes if you leave it in neutral it gets out of sync and it can be a hassle to get it all straightened out.

Glad to hear it worked out for you.

When installing a new impeller you will often turn the drive shaft anyway. when you go to reinstall the lower you can rotate the prop shaft to realign the splines. as well as keeping the unit in the correct gear. take caution not to move the shift shaft or shift the motor at the control end, once the unit has been removed.

      Cliff, you finally made it down to our end of the lake!  Did anybody catch a walleye?  I'm not totally turned off by them, I'll still stop by for a snack or drink...or both. You can't beat the setting - sitting out on the deck!

      Today the Lake Vermilion Guides League held an ice fishing day for 35 5th and 6th graders from the Cook area at the Landing. The Landing very graciously hosted this group of kids for us. I found the owners to be very friendly and happy to be a part of the kids outing! I would not hesitate to stop in there for a meal or drink if I get in that area again! Cliff

      I was on an Annandale area lake yesterday with only about 9" of ice which was getting rotten and black in places. The lake had 15" of clear ice and I was driving a Silverado on it a week earlier. There were quite a few areas where water had drained though cracks and opened up fist-sized holes within the crack.   All in all, the lake was perfectly safe for walking and more than likely not rotten or thin enough to make it unsafe for ATVs at this point. The landing was is pretty good shape, all things considered, but if one were to put an ATV in the drink, that'd be where it'd happen.
