    Dropping cylinder?

    Got an RXP that when you give it throttle it acts like its on a rev limiter and won't hardly go. when you easy on the throttle really easy, it will get up to around 50 then if u stab it it will go and run at WOT. No its not learning key, I am a mechanic and am not that dumb, but this one has me stumped. Fuel injectors appear to be putting it out ok. (removed them and turned motor over) I hooked it up to the computer BUDS program and only fault was incorrect key, which is irrelevant to this. Thanks

    You have a little twig or something caught between your prop and wear ring.

    It looks like the impeler boot is not on the prop, but it is kind of hard to see.

    You can't really tell by looking up your pump tunnel. And yes, your nose cone has walked up the shaft.

    Pull your pump and inspect for the even the tiniest twig in the prop and also put your nose cone on properly. Hint, some black silicone on the threads of the nose cone will ensure it stays in place.

    For some reason the clear silicone seems to dry harder than the black and is more durable...at least with the GE Silicone 2 brand.
