    Changed props, taking on water !

    Hey guys just changed to a 15/22r on my x. I mistakenly used the OEM threaded nose cone on the prop but didnt think much of it. I went for a test ride just before and took on a shite load of water Have i damaged my carbon seal whilst reinstalling the pump? Could the fact that i used the OEM nose cone cause this to happen?
    I installed the riva xx, 48# injectors and 83mm nozzle all at the same time and have never had this problem before. Im assuming it must have something to do with me reinstalling the pump. However i have had the pump out before to change my wear ring and didnt have any issues? guys

    Thanks

    First, determine if the nose cone walked up the shaft. Second, check the bailer lines, o-rings, and restrictor.

    It could be that when you went to pull the pump the impeller was stuck to the shaft causing the shaft to pull with the pump. That could have caused dammage to the seal or caused it to seat further in the boot maybe slightly out of square or even cracked the carbon ring. Make sure your drain plugs were in!!!!

    Ahh i hope that isnt the case! my drain plugs were definately in.
    Is the carbon seal a hard job to change out?

    So if the nose cone has walked, would this cause me to take on water? does it walk up the shaft and press against the carbon seal?

    Is the nose cone on or not?
    Easy enough to tell.
    How much water? Bailers should keep slight leak empty if working?

    Did a bailer o ring fall out when the pump was removed? Also make sure nothing is touching the carbon seal or bellow.

    Check the nose cone first as Skoep suggested, check for anything underneath on the shaft such as plastic bags. The carbon seal isnt to hard to change, takes a little time and patients.

    Would this cause the hull to fill up with water? Also anyone care to tell me where it attaches?

    Cheers guys
