Help! Water coming out from around the pump!
I just put the pump back on after changing out the wear ring. I hooked it up to the flush kit and started the engine then turned on the water. I noticed water spurting out from around the pump. I got those bolts as tight as I can get them. I'm about to pull the pump again and see if something got in the seal. Can anyone think of anything else I could have done?

Thats should be the water coming out of the exhaust = normal

It's not the exhaust though...it's around the pump where it meets witht he pump shoe. I don't think that's normal is it?

I think it might be time to pull the pump. Did you make sure the restricter (washer with a green seal around it)did not fall out.

I don't see a green seal nor do I remember seeing one when I took it apart. I also don't see a restricter on the parts diagram located here:
I did find some excess marine grease and the wear ring was sticking up a tad. both of wich could cause the gasket not to seat properly i suppose.

Its # 11 in this one.
When the pump is pulled, looking from the back to the front at the top of where the pump bolts up you will see from left to right 1 big (about the size of a quarter) and then 2 smaller holes. The big hole should have a washer looking thing with a green seal around it. The 2 smaller one should have yellowish (#9) looking seals in those holes.

The big hole is what feeds the exhaust and intercooler and when you flush the ski warm water comes out.
The smaller ones are for the vacuum bailers.

Correct me if I'm wrong but those stay in the,ski when you pull the pump and venturi off? The only holes I have on the pump are for bolts correct? All I did was change the wear ring and water spurts out from where the pump seats into the ski right by one of the bolts. There was a little dirt in that area too.
Is the wear ring supposed to be flush with the seal or slightly below.
Man, I appreciate the help.
