Default KPM Water Pump Parts

Looking for "o" rings and impellers to rebuild pumps.
I there a US dealer?
I want to take a look and see what the impeller looks like after one season.

No blue impeller in it as I had it apart when I purchase them.
It's their own impeller but the Merc will also work in it.
I had to drill out the pump body so it would work with the external fuel pump setup.
Yeah I could make an o ring but don't want to if I don't have to.

That was a false statement I was told by the original US distributer. KPM uses the standard Merc impellor. Jules at [email protected] was always very responsive to me.

Just passing on what I was also told years ago.
Maybe it is really just a Merc impeller.
If it is then why is it supposed to be able to run dry?

You're not kidding.
Had enough adventures with impellers without trying to run them dry..........
