Sherwood Impeller installation tool

The pro's use it!

Sherwood Pumps has been innovating marine products since 1903.  Before making cars, David Buick and his partners made marine castings and pumps.

The impeller installation tool makes installing a raw water impeller an easy task.  Just screw the threads into the impeller, driving it off its axle, then give her a tug.
