    best pump o8 or o9 rxpx pump???

    I am sure many don't know that SEADopes have used a different pump and prop in the 2009 rxpx...very different than the 2008. The problem is ...I have been buying some parts for a rxpx and didnt mention the year boat I have. I have both 08and 09 and had both pumps out and trying to exhange props and NO WAY! You can swap out the pump and the prop but not just the prop. HAS ANYONE TRIED TO USE A 08 PROP IN AN 09?? iS IT SAFE TO DO THIS? WHICH PUMP SETUP IS THE BEST BETWEEN THE TWO??

    Why can't you swap props?? I have an 09 and 08 SOLAS prop and the only thing I could tell that was different was a little lip on the inner hub.

    Now that I think about it I don't remember if I even tried to screw it into my 08 pump.... damn....

    It's at SKAT right now getting the setback mod done....

    the 08 prop will spin on to the 09 shaft but seems like it won't but up tight to the pump shaft!! The 09 prop sits closer to the pump veins as well with this new fitment...I just wish i knew which setup is better????

    Hard to say as I haven't seen them but I know a prop that sits close to the pump vanes is good...

    I had pictures of both props in a thread and now I can't find them..... what you're saying makes sense..

    the lip on the 09 pump impeller on the inside hub has an O-ring to seal the pump shaft to the impeller. There is no way to use a 2009 rxpx impeller on an 2008 pump it won't work. There may be a way to remove some material from the inside hub of the 08 impeller to fit on the 09 pump shaft and that would get the impeller closer to the viens for better performance. please let me know if anyone has came across this or has tried this...
