88 degrees yesterday after Tightwad and wife left the house so took my 89 out on the lake for probably the last (and only time since the Rally) time yesterday. Added plenty to Stabil to the non-ethanol gas so should be good to go at Lake Murray next June. 

Lake was smooth all the way to the dam...which is a very rare occurrence for middle of the day.

Trying to keep the steering adjusted on a Metton bike really is a pain. I had it perfect at the Rally but just a few degrees in temp can make it loose.

... oh hey, maybe you lock-up the impeller and spin the shaft backwards, never thought of trying that(maybe thats how the pros do it?)
...

so I just tried this method today on two stubborn pumps/impellers...one stainless the other aluminum impellers, with the pumps out of the crafts....had already attempted the old method of turning the impellers(and having to perfectly support the shaft so the props wouldn't get hung-up and could freely spin) even tried heating the impellers with a small torch...but what a pain to do all that, hold the shaft, and the pump, etc

- I found that my rotating/pivoting bench vise could clamp onto the impeller 6sided nut end
- then i just used a large adj.crescent(i know, worst tool in the shop)wrench on the hard steel 2sided notched shaft

...and with a 2foot 2" pvc pipe on the wrench/shaft side, they both easily twisted right off  Grin
