Hi All, These two quoted posts were from another forum but I thought it important enough to quote and post here. For years I was questioned, called to the carpet & told it could not happen about my Globe impeller failures. I finally stopped talking about them. Personally I found the Globe impellers to no longer lasting than the factory impellers, more money and I actually spun the hubs out of three of them. A spun hub is a tough one to trouble shoot the first time because when you open up the pump the impeller looks fine but the hub will actually spin within the impeller. Three pump gaskets later and I finally figured that one out. Globes response............. none.... Though they did not crack like the ones above I did have one that also cracked a vane by the end of one season. It was a long time ago that I stopped using them so it seems not much has changed with the QC? I now personally stick with factory impellers. Failures like that could endanger lives if the boat was in peril and really needed the engine.. I think it goes without saying but check your impeller if you replaced it with a Globe brand unit..
