    Newbie question

    Hello. I am new here and new to jet skis.
    I have a 97 slt 780. Engine is out ( threw a rod)
    checking impeller, should it spin freely by
    spinning shaft? Should i be able to reach
    into pump and spin impeller. The shaft spins
    easy but impeller does not move. Hope this
    is not too stupid of a ? Thanks

    When you say reach into pump to move impeller? You won't be able to get to the impeller reaching in the back. You'll get to the Stator. The stator does not move. Perhaps you are mistaking the stator for the impeller?

    Ya. I bet I am. I have no idea whats what
    In my experience With used eq. it is best
    To take it apart inspect/clean or repair.
    It sounds like I should get a manual and
    Start twisting wrench.
