    Cavitation and that dam seal..

    Guys it seams every 2nd time out I have bad cavitation issue's with my rubber pump seal. Does anyone have any rhime or reason why this thing would keep flipping up after a few rids? I install it with a little bomb lube and all is good for atleast once. But on the 2nd oe maybe 3rd outting it will start to cavitate extremly bad and I will go hm: pull it out and ofcoarse a dam crease...

    What do ya'll think it is? Need to torq harder? Or just a new seal??

    At least you`ll be starting off with a new seal, so you can eliminate one item...PR...

    BTW: the torque specs for the 4 pump bolts/nuts are 23ftlbs...

    Dam Austin,I 've been having the cavitation problem when trying to jump out the hole and when making sharp turns,so with help from jerry I went ahead and changed the carbon seal and the pump gasket seal and will gave it a run this weekend and see if it solved the cavitation problem.Thanks jerry for the info and ordering the parts I needed.(your the man)
