    Prop wear Replace?????

    I have a xl1200 finally got the ride plate off after fighitng with slipping retainers. Was just going to seal the gap left by faulty felt gasket but I notices some damage to the prop. I dont want to put a lot of money into this ski but I think to fix my cavitation problem I need to replace this prop. Any suggestions. Will sealing the felt gap help a lot???? a little???? Any cheap alternatives to replacing the prop?????

    Attached some pics of the prop damage

    yup, thats definitely cavitation burn on the prop edges.

    I Would suggest to also look for the cause of the cavitation as well. Have you had a pump plug kit installed in the pump shoe? if not, I suggest doing that to help prevent cavitation. Sealing the pump shoe helps even better eliminate any voids.

    The liner [wear ring] does not look that bad. A new impeller will also help close the gap. The increased gap right now from the impeller>wear ring is due to the cavitation damage. But, pull the pump assembly to make sure there are no deep gouges in the wear ring especially around the 8:00 area if you look at the wear ring from the outlet side.

    Is there any sacing this impeller??? Can I sand the edges back smooth???? I found a replacemant for $25 at SBT. Cheap enough to replace I think. Also I think the source was a faulty or worn felt gasket between the two plates I was going to seal that with 5200 when I found this. Thanks for the help. Any step by step info for replacing prop????

    Thats is a great economical replacement for the prop. Here is a how-to for the impeller removal/replacement.
    To stop the cavitation source, I would highly suggest you seal your pump shoe or at the minimum, get a pump plug kit for it. The voids in the pump shoe will cause cavitation for your pump.

    I ordered an impeller from SBT and it go here tonight. When I opened the box I imediately noticed that they did not ship the impeller shaft tool. Very disapointed!!!! Then when I tried to slip the new impeller over the spines on the shaft( just to make sure it was the right one) I would not slide over. THIS IS A NIGHTMARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My XLT eats props too maybe your liner is bad mine is a 2004 and the liner is getting replaced it has a high spot at the 9 oclock spot looking in the back it has been sanded down twice so i guess it just gets worse sanding wont fix the liner you have to replace it.

    The OEM impeller does not require an impeller tool. I don't know of anyone that sends a driveshaft tool with an impeller.
