    Intake Grate I.D.

    Hey GH,

    My ski was purchased used last fall from a dealer (no contact with previous owner) and apparently it has an aftermarket intake grate.

    So, first question is, with the picture below, can anyone identify which grate this is?

    Secondly, the impeller boot has come off the front of the impeller. The OEM diagram says that it needs oil applied to the front and back of it, but my question is, with that boot off, did water contaminate the oil pack in the cone? Can I simply slide it back on or does the whole impeller assy need to come off and re packed with grease?

    Thanks guys!

    Thats Definately an R&d grate.(good all around grate. You don't have to run that impeller boot but if you do.. Put some silicone (ritestuff) on it when you reinstall it and it should stay.

    we are talking about the rubber boot that goes on the end of the impeller the driveshaft goes into .. no screws it screws on it's self.. and just a small bead all the way around should do it. yes rightstuff 1 min sealant..

    thats a r&d imo. you should pull the pump to remove/reinstall the nose cone and make sure your prop is tight.
