    Question Tricks for clearing jet pump?

    I picked up a stick about two miles from the ramp yesterday. I couldnt get it loose by lifting and dropping the back of the ski. Any thing above 3000 rpm was a waste so much slippage at 3000 rpm it was lke a 2200rpm ide zone. When I got back to the ramp and the SLX on the trailer I couldnt see anything. The extended pump makes for poor visibility. When I got it home a 2ft section of all thread and a flashlight was required to pry it loose. I was heading down a very narrow channel off of the Great Miami river that joins with the Ohio river. Turning 6530 rpm when I sucked it up. It cut about one third of the way thru the stick.
    does anybody know any tricks to try (to clear the impeller) when stuck a good distance away from help(and alone)
    Thanks!

    I all most all way need a land to work on it. The last time it happen to me I had a hell of a time too. What ended up working for me was reaching in the engine compartment and turning the fly wheel by hand in revers. It came out after that. But on a 2 stroke. I think a 4 stroke would be a different animal. To hard to turn over hand.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the suggestion!
    i had thought, Damn I wish I could start the motor in reverse rotation for about 5 seconds and it would clear out. I would guess if the plugs were pulled a belt could be wrapped around the coupler and spun backwards. I really should have a backup plan when I run 20 miles up the ohio river by myself. Other than a cell phone.
