    Worn Wear Ring Question

    Will a worn wear ring cause a rattle in the pump? Similar to the one at idle when hooked up to the hose but exaggerated when in the water at part and WOT. Kinda sounds like a rock rolling around in the pump really fast. Or is this normal? Def coming from under the deck so i figured it has to be the pump or wear ring.

    Just picked up an 07 RXP 215 with 14 hrs.

    you should not be able to hear any pump noise when in the water, sounds like your pump needs a close inspection ASAP

    i read somewhere it might be the prop rattling on the driveshaft... any truth to this? Im going to pull the pump this week and check it out.

    Doubtful. It's normal to hear a rattle sound when the ski is run out of the water.

    Did you check your wearring?

    A bad wearring gives poor performance and loss off rpm's and holeshot.

    Bit off rattling is normal when running out of the water.

    Good question.... it's just the nature of the beast. These 4-tec skis have always had that rattly pump sound when run out of water.

    Franko says it sounds like a box of spoons in there when you run it out of water. Sounds weird, but all of my doos have done it.

    I just changed from the metal to plastic pump. New impeller and new wear ring and all new internals in the pump. Still rattles out of water.
