Yea I was looking at skidim but wasn't quite sure what I was looking for I found the little rebuild kit for 80 I think but then seen the pump for nearly 600 just hoping I can replace the crack piece without a whole new pump

Mine cracked too, I bought the $80 rebuild kit. Just be carefull tighting it back up, it says 10 FT lbs and even tightening them down evenly I cracked it somehow. Im pretty sure you can buy just the plastic housing but kit comes with a new impeller. Figured it would save me trouble later.

So what did you do to fixed the cracked new one? Mine is metal I'm pretty sure I scratched it with my knife and it was aluminum but it has 5 bolt holes like the plastic one on skidim I just don't want to buy the wrong thing

Call skidim in the morning, they will guide you to the right part or confirm your choice. Very knowledgeable and helpful.

I ordered the part from skidim is there a way to remove the impeller without having the tool to pull without causing damage to anything else?
