Thread: Worn impeller.

  1. #1

    Worn impeller.

    I've been having major cavitation issues on my stock 1997 gp 760. I recently picked up new r&d intake grate, ride plate, riva sponsons, and a 13/17 Solas impeller. Im putting them all on at the same time. Check out this old impeller, this alone could be causing my issues I would think? I adjusted the sponsons top all the way up and bottom all the way down. I'm hoping once I figure out how to get this impeller off and slap everthing together it'll be like a new ski. I should see a big diferance. So how bad is this impeller?

    The housing chewed up also. I've got a new housing and impeller so I should see a big improvement.
