    Is my pump bearing failing?

    Was out riding and everything was fine, when crunk to come back in had a vibration that felt like something hung in the impeller. I nursed it back in at 4 mph, pulled ski out to find no obstruction. Cranked ski on trailer and have tremendous amt of smoke coming from pump housing, there is also a charred look on the right side of the pump. Any ideas on what is causing this?

    are you sure that smoke is coming from the pump??? the exhaust outlet is right there... the black soot like stuff is exhaust 2 stroke residue.

    yes i know that the exhaust exits there just seems to be more soot and smoke than normal, but after thinking of how long i idled at 4mph i think the extra smoke and soot may just be where the carbs were loaded up because the ski does run rich at idle.
