Local dealer wants 2 hrs labor to change an impeller on a Merc 60ct. Just change the impeller. No fluids gaskets or seals. Sounds to me like they are using a one arm mechanic. What you guys say?

Thanks, I'm a fair diy'er . I may try myself . Or maybe call around and find an honest dealer for the 1 hr deal. I already have the impeller.

Yeah, it's not hard. You can youtube instructions if you need it.
Helpful hint: have a helper that can wiggle the flywheel to stab the shaft.

Thanks Pat, figured you would jump in there. Always appreciate your advice. I'm looking at all the vids.

Merc and Yamahas are easy, those dang johnrudes are a lot more complicated.

Yup, have to take the lower cowling off to disconnect the shift rod.

Flat rate 1.7 they should always check compression, fire and check lower unit for water

I say just do it yourself. It is easy. I do 2-3 per year, one on my boat and 1 or 2 for friends. Use anti-seize when you screw the bolts back in and don't forget about the one that is usually under the trim/anode tab. Having a buddy wiggle the flywheel will indeed help, but you can do it by yourself, especially on a smaller motor like yours.

I also agree with boatman that while you are at it, change the LU oil/check for milky color of old oil and have a look at compression and spark. Easy to do.
