Thread: Jetpump/impeller question?
05-15-2010, 05:41 PM #1
If the jetpump or impeller is seized will you be able to turn the motor? with the sparkplugs out by hand?
i assume no am i correct?

No, not if it's still connected to the impeller/pump and the pump is locked up.
Have you at least climed under the ski while on the trailer and had a looksy up inside your pump tunnel?
You may see something, you may not, but worth a quick look.

so by knowing this now and help from my other post... i should remove the steering bolts and the 4 long bolts connected to the nozzle and remove the jet pump then try to turn the motor and this will tell me what i need to replace right? either jetpump or motor lol... =(
if curious to see my symptoms check my other post from earlier today
2000 Polaris pro 1200 Issue no idea???
just trying to get back out there...

That is correct. Steering and trim bolts, and the 4 long pump bolts. You need to disconnect the pump from the motor and then you'll know.
The driveshaft has rubber bumpers on the ends, make sure to keep an eye out for those. They just press into the ends.
Also, the watertube from the pump to the transom has an o-ring. Be careful not to damage or lose that.
It's really a very simple procedure and I think you'll do fine.
