    Hey guys my 1986 6hp stopped flowing water when i fired her up the other day. I took a look at the impeller only to find it had self destructed. Every single fin had broken off. I'll order a new one this weekend but does anybody know which direction the impeller should spin? All the fins were broke off so I can't just look at the old one. thanks

    Same direction as the flywheel rotates when you pull the starter cord... ;)

    Had the same thing happen to me years ago. As I was cursing up a storm trying to figure it out, I was leaning on the motor and saw the recoil staring back at me. I realized the answer was staring back at me. ;D
