Just changed the impeller and wear ring before taking the spark out of winter storage. First time i have changed an impeller and wear ring. The impeller was a solas 12/17 and a riva racing stainless steal ring. I lubericated the surface area of the wear ring with grease so it should all run smooth the first start up... Hit the start button and a horrible noice came from the impelle it also seemed to jump up and down more than normal, like the drive shaft was bent(?). Have no idea if its normal or not... What should i do if its not normal? Also the engine wont start... Before winter we left it at the dealer to do a full service. Any suggestions?? Heres some pics and videos of the check engine light, impeller and wear rin clearance and the horrible noise...:

its kinda hard to tell by the video, but they do make a lot of noise out of the water, as for a check engine light on and not starting I don't think its something you've caused if all you did was pull the pump off, I would say your dealer likely forgot to hook something up when they did your winterize, best bet would be the cam sensor on the top of the valve cover, it has to be disconnected to remove the centre ignition coil/spark plug if I remember right.

Sucked out the gas in the tank and filled up new gas. Dealer probably didnt add fuel stabilizer and the tank was about 1/3 full. Moisture probably built up and caused the problems... Started on the third try with the new gas. The impeller is not making the loud scraping sound anymore.... It still scrapes, but not as bad as the first cranks. Here is a video from today when it started up in slow motion:
