    headed to tampa so i went to take my rideplate off so jim could work it over while i was down on business and found this in the bottom of my pump. Ski has been sitting since sept. In garage. Is new seals all i need or is there something else i should be concerned with?

    Seals? Look at you pump veins. The whole pump is shot!!! You need new everything!

    i will double check things since it is out of the ski now. how are you determining that the pump is shot? what should the veins on a good pump look like?

    It could be a distortion of the pictures but from what I can see it looks like the outer edge of the vein looks eaten away almost like a half moon cut out. Just make sure the trailing edge is straight with now erosion.

    the veins are in good shape form what i can recall. when i get back to the ski i will triple check the condition of the veins. as for the discoloration of the cone. no clue for the cause. long story short. i aquiired this ski as is without any details of its condition or history. i am slowly getting a full inventory and what kinks need to be worked out. if you see anything that needs to be adressed i am open ears
