15/22r pump nose cone
Hey guys, just changed my prop to the Solas 15/22r. Just as i had it all back together and on the ski, i looked up to see a flash new green pump nose cone (the one that threads on) sitting on my ski in its packet .
I reused the nose cone off of my stock prop not realising i got a new one with the 15/22r. Is this going to be an issue? please say no
Thanks in advance

Every time I have ever fitted that green nose cone it has come loose and walked up the shaft causing cavitation and a loss of top end.
I only ever run the stock nose cone now with some polyurathane sealent on the threads, it never come loose that way. Make sure you do it up real tight. There might be a few 10th of a MPH in the cone but you will see much bigger differences in speed from water conditions and weather.
I would most definately not be removing my pump again to fitt the green metal cone. R88

Good prop and yes the oem boot works fine ..
Did you loose any rpm with that prop??

I'm running without the cone for two years now,no problems at all.
I have done this on salt water also, doesn't matter a thing.
Don't have to worry about loose nosecones anymore.
People say you may see slight speed gains from removing the cone,i can't confirm this because i did this with a lot of other mods at the same time..

I installed a Speedfreeks nose cone on a Solas 15/22R using red locktite on the threads of the nose cone and the threads of the impeller. I simply screwed the nose cone into the impeller by hand......and it hasn't moved at all.

Hey Rich i just went out for a test ride. Everything was all sweet, for 20 minutes or so when i noticed the ski seemed a little sluggish. On lifting the seat to inspect i noticed that the hull was about 1/3 filled with water. I quickly got it back on the trailer and drained the hull. There was A LOT of water in there.
Have i damaged the carbon seal whilst installing the new prop? could the nose cone be the issue?
