    how to tell what prop is installed without removing

    I did some slight damage to the impeller (seadoo rxp 2004) and i am unsure what impeller is currently in there.

    It has only lost 200rpm and a few Mph but do not wish to remove it until i know if im ordering a new solas or repairing the one that is in there.

    Its slightly polished but still has the standard nose cone on it.

    Can anyone inform me of something that might give it away?

    thanks

    Just pull the pump and have a look. It doesnt take long at all.

    stock impllers are acutally aluminum as its cheaper and easier to make them. Thats why to solas ones are so expensive cause they are stainless and they dont felx at high rpm like the stock ones do. They also can take a bit more beating the the stocks ones since aluminum is softer then stainless

    All stock oem SD impellers have been SS for years.

    OK, I went back and looked, the mid 1990's low end skis (like the SP) had aluminum impellers. All the higher-performing skis from that era had SS. Everything from about 2000 up all had SS impellers

    I think I'll check this when I get in late tonight or in the morning, sure thought I remembered these as being aluminum. I still have the stocker, I will post up my findings even if I am wrong!!!! Damn that might hurt......

    You are probably thinking about the stock props on outboards. They are usually aluminum.
