I figured I should have it at all times, but this was only after I first
started it up. If it was going out, wouldn't it stop altogether shooting
the telltale? At idle yesterday after running for a minute, the telltale
worked every time, no delay. My screen was clear, so I don't know. I'll
probably just replace the impeller anyway since I don't know when it was
last done. Has anybody replaced the impeller themselves, is it very
difficult? I like to do my own work when I can so I can spend the money on
the gas and not the labour. If anyone can walk me through the procedure in
an email that would be great! Thanks!!
