Can anyone tell me how to remove the impeller from a Craftsman Deep well pump. This a Dynaglass model 3/4 hp.

Remove the back cover of the motor. On the end of the motor shaft, you'll see a centrifugal switch (it usually has 2 springs on it). Behind this switch are two flat spots on the shaft that a 7/16ths wrench will fit. Work the wrench onto the flat spots to hold the shaft. Now, using a pair of Channelock pliers, turn the impeller CCW, just like removing a nut from a bolt. The impeller should thread off. If your careful and lucky, the impeller won't break.

Craftsman Pump

Craftsman pumps are manufactured by Sta-Rite. You can usually remove the impellar from the motor shaft by unscrewing with a strap wrench or chain vise grips.
Remove the cover from the motor end. Then insert a narrow 7/16" open end wrench on the flats on the motor shaft to hold the shaft from turning. Then unscrew the impellar. Pumpman-Ron's instructions are even clearer!
