Water pump question

Recommended Posts

I changed my first water pump the other day and couldn't help but notice that I could no longer turn the crank shaft by hand. Is this normal? I figured that it was maybe due to the new impeller but didn't know for sure.

if you are talking about the shaft on the lower unit, it will not rotate freely if the unit is in gear. If in neutral it will rotate by hand. I always change my impeller in neutral and reinstall in neutral.
