    Cool SHO Stock Impeller errosion

    Okay... I kept wondering why my speed was falling off and the launch was beginning to suck. Now I know.

    Anyone had this issue? Anyone have a stock impeller and can hook me up before the weekend?

    Blade #1

    Blade #2


    Blade #3


    All three at once...

    looks like cavitation burn to me. That leading edge damage will also cause issues.

    I have a stocker... Somewhere....

    On the top side of the blades just halfway back the edges are GONE! Are the aftermarket blades Stainless or aluminum like this one?

    +1 seal everything before the prop to stop this.

    That's from cavitation. If you install another stock it will happen again. Might be time to go with an after market impeller with more pitch so you aren't burning the prop out of the hole.

    Am not trying to threadjack BUT my buddy has a Sea-Doo (supercharged but not sure of HP) that cavitates BADLY out of the hole.

    Ski is bone stock. Cavitation is so bad I almost thought someone replaced the impeller with the wrong one. It takes a while for the ski to get going.

    Maybe we should pull the impeller and have a look see?

    Craig, you will more than likely find that his wear ring is toast. If it's been that way for a while then his impeller is probably shot too!

    My recommendation is go with the Riva stainless steel wear ring and replace the stock impeller with the Solas 13/18R (for stock skis)

    After a little rework without removing the impeller... here is the result.

    You don't even know how to recognize cavitation burn and can't even tell if the impeller is stainless or aluminum yet you are now an expert on "prop clipping"

    I'm seriously beginning to wonder about you and your motives here

    If I am wrong about the material at least I can stand up and face it when saying it. Never said I was an IMPELLER expert...

    If indeed its stainless... its the softest stainless known to mankind. LOL!!
