Polaris sltx 1050 impeller problems
I have a 1997 polaris sltx 1050 I just rebuilt the top end, cleaned the carbs, did the ignition update kit
And just got it out on the river today and first thing is it was idleing really low around 700 or 800 rpms And didnt wanna stay running but when I hit the gas it acked fine! So I fig!!!ure I have to bump up the idle ! I did check the plugs and pistons and they look fine! Second I was goig down the river at about 4500 rpms and about a mile down the river I heard a grinding noise then lost all jet power but the motor was fine! when I got it home and tore the impeller down and find the drive shaft and impeller were stripped, what could of caused this? Oh and if any one has a cheap used impeller and driveshaft that would help alot!

I lost my intake grate once and sucked up a rock just big enough to jam the drive shaft. Im not sure IF SBT repairs splines on impellers or just the blades but they have a cheap impeller swap deal. I'm sure someone on here has a shaft and impeller for you.

Yep you need a pump alignment tool. Were are you located? Maybe someone near you has one. Beerdart made some for a bunch of us.
