    just knocked out the teeth. It is my understanding that they help prevent cavitation. Is that true?

    You guys are in luck...Pull the pump,take a die grinder or dremmel tool with a grinding wheel and grind them ALL out..You will see NO differance in the ski with them or without them..There are many members on here who have had done the same thing and have gound them out and have ZERO issues with them out.Including myself..This will save you guys a bunch of time and money..Guarenteed!!!

    Just remember, You have to grind them ALL out, not just the broken ones..If you leave any of them in there then you will experiance cavitation bad..Grind them all out,sand it smooth and your good to go again...
