That’s a great point Keith! I should have said that it IS in fact a 7.3 Kohler unit.

You would by any chance have a good source to obtain those parts would you?

Should I replace the whole hub? Is that a kit I can buy?

The drive coupling is part #359448. The impeller kit is 359978. A substitute impeller would be the Sherwood 08000K, the Kohler impeller is actually less than the Sherwood impeller. While I'm sure you could find them on line, I would encourage you to find a local Kohler dealer and get the parts from them. It is always a good idea to develop a relationship so you aren't a stranger when you need them for something.

Thats awesome keith. Thank you! I agree, building a good relationship with a local dealer is such a good idea! I have found one in the greater Cleveland area that I may reach out to.

Hi All, just wanted follow up and tell you the final resolve...

So its always the LAST thing you check, but it was actually the ball valve! The valve had busted and was only allowing a small amount of water to go through. I'm replacing the ball valve and next season should be right as rain!

thank you all for your help and support as always! love this group!

Good news is I have replaced all parts that everyone has suggested. Only part I was not able to do is start a relationship with a local Kohler dealer. But in time it will come.
