    Default My impeller disintegrated, where are all the pieces?

    I must have put the cam in wrong when I installed the impeller and it somehow caused the impeller to be torn to shreds, literally. I've taken all the hoses associated with the cooling system and the thermostat housing off to look for pieces of the impeller. Also, I've looked in the oil cooler and the box shaped thing next to it. I've found quite a few. Where else should I look for the pieces without taking the engine apart?

    Most likely the impeller was dry when you fired the engine up.

    You must find and retrieve all of the pieces. Follow the path from the Impeller down stream.

    Here's the closed cooling system.

    Here's the open system.
