Do this so you do not ruin the threads when putting it back on!
I also have a bent impeller. I have been working on getting the pulley off for hours now. The pipe wrench on the shaft keeps that from spinning but I'm afraid to use any more force than I have been. I have tried heating the pulley nut with a torch but it looks like soft alu and I haven't gone red hot. Am I just being too gentle? I'm getting pissed. (angry not drunk)

Just swapped the impeller out today, hardest part was getting that pulley off. In my case, I jammed a small 1x4 into the impeller through the chute opening, wedging it nicely, and then used a 1/2" drive 15/16's socket on a breaker bar to fight it off. It took a LOT more force than I expected, but then after removing I saw all the red threadlocker they used. Eventually it turned easier and came off.


As for getting the shaft out of the machine, I removed the bearing retainers on either side of the auger housing, unbolted the auger from the bearing so that the augers were floating in the housing. I placed it open-side down, put that 1x4 on the rear of the shaft and gave it a good whack with a hand sledge. Popped right out.


Someone else here posted about a small ridge that keeps the impeller from being able to slide right off, they were right. I used a small file to even it out and slip it off.


I also put the entire machine in my living room because my garage isn't heated. Helped greatly.

Lemme take a wild guess here. There are no females living there, right?

Nope, last one had an issue with me rebuilding a 550cc motorcycle engine in the kitchen.

Sigh. And out of that picture, what caught my eye was the Nintendo zapper light gun, presumably nicely paired up with a CRT TV, so it can actually work Cool!

I wish modern consoles could still work with a light gun, that's a game genre that's sort of disappeared. Maybe the VR systems will make that kinda happen somehow.

Yup, and I always keep a spare CRT on hand in case that one dies. SNES to the left and my Genesis is behind it. Even if I could play Duck Hunt in VR, it wouldn't be the same.

Yeah, females are like that. For a while there I did have a Yamaha XS650 stored over the winter in my living room. But I was single then, now my wife complains about R/C model airplanes in the dining room.
