    Nose cone stuck on shaft

    when i was changing my impeller this past week i noticed my nose cone wasnt screwed into my impeller and had actually moved up the driveshaft and was stuck there, I figured it had been like that for a while and didn't have the time to pull it off, so I just put everything together and left it that way until i get the chance to pull everything apart. Has this happened to any of you guys? The ski drives normal

    loss of rpm

    from what everyone else on here says it will take away rpm and make the ski cavitate on accel
    just cut it off with a dremel

    Can`t you just work it down? Spray some lube on it and twist it back down...PR...

    Had the same thing happen to me. I sprayed some lube on the shaft and pulled it back with really small long nose pliers. Once I was able to get my hands on it, I took the thing completely off and have never put it back on since.
