When I change out my impeller do I need to change out the housing, gaskets etc. In other words, I bought the whole water pump kit for $100 but I also have just a new impeller. Everything looks good in the lower unit so I wasn't sure if I couldn't just clean the housing etc and put in ONLY the new impeller?

Thanks guys,

Usually the plate that the impeller sits ontop of gets slightly grooved over time and is worth replacing.

Sounds good, thank you. I've done some more research and since I have the full kit I might as well replace the gaskets rings etc.

Yes gaskets are cheap as well. I am of the type that thinks those parts are cheap enough that it's worth replacing if you have parts in hand. And since you have the whole kit, id install the whole kit. That's just my personal view.
