    Drive question

    I thought I had a 97 SL780 but in reading the posts about the drive stator I looked at mine and I have a Solas Concord PA-CD-13/19 swirl 3 blade. I'm assuming this is stock but was curious just the same. What drive is this and is it from a 97?

    The hull date code is part of the HIN number code plate on the rear deck.

    They didn't make a SL 780 in 1997. Check the last 2 numbers on your HIN tag like mentioned above.

    And a Solas impeller never came stock on a Polaris

    Correct that Polaris never used Solas impellers, 13/19 Solas would be a replacement for the 780 engines. I believe they did make SL 780 for both 96 & 97, have to check my sales brochures to verify.

    Son of a beotch......

    I never knew they had a 97 SL, I thought it was just a SLT.

    The Solas WEB site says the PA-CD-13/19 is for a SL900, any issue with running on my 780?

    You are about 20 lbs lighter, but 14 HP less than the 900 of the same year. Your peak HP is 93 @ 6250 vs 107 @ 6350 on the 900. You can try it out, but I would watch your RPM to ensure it stays in the correct range. Too much load on the motor because of too much prop will speed up a burndown......
