Perma-green centri impeller replacement ?

I'm rebuilding an old Centri and don't like the small impeller (it's cracked anyway). I'd like to get more distance on the throw. Has anyone replaced the impeller with a different / larger size? I'm also not too impressed with Perma-green part prices - I would think another brand with the same rod diameter would work as well. Any help greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure who makes the hopper..... it's black and holds about 120lbs or so. The impeller is about 9" in diameter.... have two push Lesco's and they are 12". Looks like they would fit fine, but the have that wierd offset where the rod goes through.

Its a spyker. Single rectangle hole, right?
The ole Centri's were good machines, and I loved the dual nozzle thing. Hopper on it much better than on the Mag I have.
