look at my impeller!
this happened on the last ride of the year! for some reason i was running flat out and all of a sudden a horrible noise and vibration started. Maybe this is why!
more pics coming soon.....wait till u see it out of the pump and what the wear ring looks like!

not totally sure to be honest. i was just riding along when it happened. i was in deep water and never heard anything get sucked through the pump area that may have caused it. has this happend to anyone else before?

Damn Justin you're really lucky that piece didn't let go or you could have had more problems man!

Josh that was exactly what i thought when i first figured out that it cracked like that!

I have had 3 blades break from the leading edge before, but i have never seen a 4 blade break from the trailing edge.

Has that prop been tweaked a couple of times? I would think they can only be bent so many times.

I have bent props back and forth and back again and never had that happen. Definately looks like metal fatigue.
