    rxt troubles - Engine sounds like it's shaking apart

    I just got off the lake. Had to limp in for two miles after getting a small piece of wood stuck on the impeller blade. It felt like it was going to shake apart so I immediatly shut it down. I took the wood out and checked it out of water. Everything seems ok. N grooves in wear ring. Ran it for 20 seconds on the trailer. The vibration seems to be gone. I'm afraid of a bent drive shaft. Should I worry it and get it checked or take it out tomorrow and give it a shot?

    Its amazing that a small stick can cause so much trouble. I have had grass and not a lot of it bring me to a crawl until I got it cleared out. I think you are back in business. It will take something more than a stick to bend your drive shaft.

    cool -

    I'm driving to NewHampshire on Saturday. It would have royally sucked if I screwed it up a day before the trip. I'm going to try it at 6am tomorrow before I go to work. Hopefully I'm back in business.....

    Thanks for the info

    lol, it is a strange sound with even a small stick in there... hope your ski is okay.

    If your dealer is cool with you, a stage 2 wont do anything to your warranty!
