2010 spacer issue
Pulled my pump/ prop today to replace the OEM 2009 impeller spacer with the 2010 gold version. When the prop is torqued down the driveshaft won't spin. The new spacer is binding on the bearing I believe, which is why it spins fine without being torqued down. I double checked to make sure I had it installed the right way and made sure it was seated in the middle and still had the issue. I ended up putting the old spacer back on and everything was fine. Not sure why this happened....

Jim do you just do this with the 2010 spacer or all of them? I just got my pump back from the dealer with new bearings and seals and it didn't spin as freely as I would have liked, but I assumed it was a little tight because everything was new and packed full of grease inside.

Here is something i came across on the parts finder the other day. But, now that i see this thread, I'll ask.
On the 08-09 sho's, the spacer(silver) is part# 6S5-R1348-00-00
In 2010, they changed it out to the gold spacer, part# 6BH-51348-00-00
In 2011, there is a new superseded part# 6BH-51348-01-00... Did they change the spacer again for 2011? with my knowledge of yamaha. they don't change a part # unless there has been a physical change to the part.

I've been using the 2010 Gold spacer for about a year now with the flat side against the impeller and no issues. I wonder if there's a difference if you use a stock prop, Solas or Skat and the gold spacer??? I've only used the Skat props since I put the new Gold spacer on.

I have noticed that even on the GPR that after a few prop changes the silver spacer would crush just enough to rub the seal, after I noticed this, I simply replace the spacer and use with every new prop installed...
