Have you tried putting a spanner wrench on the impeller nut and spinning the shaft? Should go easy once you overpower the mass of the rotor, shaft and impellers. Starting to look like the motor bearings may be full of plateing or rust. Could they have gotten "washed out" from the liquid this thing was moving?
Don't know about dogs being people, but some people are dogs! I dated some of them in my younger days.

Well I have studied in depth all the inputed data and photographic evidence , and after many hrs of detailed microscopic analysis of the photos I then had to call upon my vast experience of having been deep inside many a PCV and have come to the following conclusion ..............
But Klove could have something with the writing theory ???????????????????

ha ha ha you laff!
True story............cooling tower fan hand grenaded. We were able to locate a replacement out of state, had it air freighted into O'Hare. I was told it was coming in at X o'clock, at terminal yz. Get that prop!.
Went to the airport early, met the receiving dude at the shipping company, reviewed what I was waiting for, and tlod him i'm gonna wait in the shade in the buggy. Checked every 15 minutes for shipment. Shift change, or lunch, whatever, the guy I met was gone, and a new dude came up to the truck, told me the shipment's here, pull up to overhead door abc.
I was in the back of the truck rearranging the junk when my partner burst out laughing.Turning to see what's up, a thousand beady little eye balls were staring at me thru vent holes in the crate they were attempting to load into the buggy. Turns out they mistook me for some one else, and was trying to give a crate full of ferrets.
I've always wondered what the black market would bear on 500 ferrets.
There's not an issue with thinking that someone may be in over their head and suggesting that they get experienced help. That's just an opinion, and oftentimes a correct one around here. (I believe that I can safely say it wouldn't be a correct one in the case of pringlel, but you wouldn't necessarily know that, and that's understandable.) There's not a problem with pointing someone in the right direction for what they may not be aware exists and expecting them to do their own legwork. I, like you, never liked someone to use me for an encyclopedia because they were too lazy to put their own effort into it and wanted it handed to them. (Another thing that I believe that we can safely say is not the case with P.)
Those things are not what's at issue, from my viewpoint. What's at issue is that you called another man incompetent simply because he asked for a service manual. That would fly straight in the face of proper decorum even if it were true, which it's not. I don't think that it would do any good to go back over all the really good reasons for having a service manual that folks have pointed out in this thread, but there have been many, and, as Kevin Bacon said in "A Few Good Men", they are indisputable.
So it comes down to this: If you don't like sharing what you've accumulated over the years, why are you here at all? That's what this place is about - the sharing of info for the good of the industry and each other. We have to be careful sometimes, and sometimes we have to hope that folks are qualified to use what they are given, but overall, it's about helping folks that want help, and sharing what it's taken the you's and the me's of the world 30 or 40 years to learn and being willing to share it with the younger guys so that they don't have to reinvent the wheel. Let them learn from our successes and failures. If you feel like someone is asking to be spoonfed, you have the right to not respond. If you want to respond, and do so by immediately treating someone like they're incompetent and stupid when they've done nothing to deserve such treatment, I for one would just as soon you keep it to yourself.
If you truly feel that what you said was out of line, why don't you just say "Sorry", instead of trying to explain away something that won't go away without your making it do so?
