Okay. last guy didn't think you needed gasket on pump and it cavitation erroded a few of the stator splines. As well as started to crack rear pump plate. Is the big cone plastic pump stock on 98-99 ???
Guess notjust looked in 98 -99 it's in 2001 parts catalog looks like the wear ring has lip I don't see on this ring/ pump. Maybe two mistakes. Maybe thats why hull took on water even after new gasket
