I have a 85 hp Bearcat (Fisher Pierce) and am searching for a water pump impeller... I was able to find ones for the 55hp (Homelite/Bearcat) at Globe Rubber Co... The 85 uses the same size impeller, excepting for the shaft size is 3/4" vise the 55's 5/8"... Anyone know where I can locate a 2" X 7/8" with 3/4" keyed shaft impeller.???

You probably have already tried this, but in case not, let me mention Ed Ewing, the 80-year-old longtime owner of Economy 4 Cycle Marine of Redding, California. He refurbishes Bearcat engines and sells them with a one-year warranty. He might have the answer for you.

I spoke to Ed while researching my article ( ) on Bearcat engine history. He seems like a great guy. Recently he put up a website. See:

Well the current staus is, the folks in Minn have only 55hp parts (no 85 hp)... Left a voice mail with Ed Ewing... The guy I spoke with at Twin City mentioned a group called "Save the Homelites" out in Los Angeles.... I couldn't find anything about them on the web... Anybody heard of this group.???

Hey Jim....

Thanks much for the lead to .... Ed Ewing just called me back and sold me his very last water pump impeller... You are right in that he is a heck of a nice guy to talk with... He's got a brand new lower unit too but, didn't have a price on it (wanted to save it for someone really in need of one)... Thanks again for the tip that resulted in a huge success for me... Is it Whalers that make people so great or is it great people that have Whalers.??? (or both)
