    Solas impeller binding against the pump???

    A friend of mine just finished trying to install a solas impeller on his 15f and its not fitting right against the pump. Has anybody else ever run into that problem before??? its a 09 15f that has about 5 hours on it and he just wanted to change out the impeller for a stainless one. It appears that the impeller wasn't machined properly where it goes up to the pump. Yess there was a 12 pack involved but i doubt that has anything to do with it lol

    Any suggestions?? or should he just send it back to solas??

    happens all the time
    here are some possible causes

    1. it was made incorrectly ( prop, if new )
    2. your liner is out of round, if it was a old ski maybe corrosion behind liner
    3. prop has been rebuilt poorly
    4. bent shaft ( low on possibe scale , but can happen )

    either way need to try another prop to see if problem is in prop or housing

    that a good place to start

    It ended up being the prop, He sent it back and got a skat-trac prop and everything is good now. He took it to the shop he bought the ski from and narrowed it down to it being the prop was made out of specs. Just waiting on the first 80 degree day and we will see after that lol ... Solas was great about it. Never had a problem with them at all.
    Thanks bud.
