    Need advice on pump cone..please help!

    I have about 50-60 hours on my RXT. I took the pump cone off and there was NO water at all inside. I'm putting it back together and was wondering if I really need to do the pressure test. None of the other original seals were disturbed and no seals changed out. Thanks

    Yes, the tool exists, but what we are saying is "no water no problem"

    When I sucked up rocks and removed the damaged prop, I found water in the pump. I checked out the bearings, they were good. seal appeared to be good. I filled the pump up with light oil and nothing leaking, so this time I used anerobic sealant on the pump cone (skat modded pump)...PR...

    I have to check it again before next season...

    Worked out good...nice and tight but not overfilled! I grease the rings good and took it easy on inserting the cone over the O rings..slid right on and tightened right up!
