Locked up jet drive
While out riding the ski this afternoon the jet drive locked up, the bearings were sounding chunky then just locked up while I tried to limp it back to the dock, it locked up while I was going very slow so hopefully it didn't cause much damage. I am going to pull the jet drive tomorrow, any suggestions to what to look for?

I have pulled the jet drive and have my work cut out for me, the jet drive housing will not come apart, and one of the long bolts broke so I will have to extract that and get a new one. I have the drive housing soaking in dawn soap in a bucket to see if that will help, I was banging on it with a rubber mallet in between letting it soak and it will not budge, I am a little nervous on using a chisel to get that thing apart but I guess that will be next.
As you mentioned I have to check the wear ring, do you know if I could leave the impeller shaft on and send that whole unit to impellerpros and have them remove it saving me from having to buy that special removal tool? I will need to buy a new impeller shaft as this one is toast.

Sorry to hear about the failure. Looking at the extent of the corrosion and the bearing damage, I suspect even if you had taken it apart right away the repair effort would be similar.
As you now know, you often cannot tell until you actually remove the jet pump and do a proper inspection.
If you can find for reasonable money a decent condition six vane SS stator, extension, and possibly impeller (basically a whole used jet pump), that might be an easier route than attacking and repairing the old parts.

Thanks for the advise, I have been going through your how to on removing/reinstalling the jet drive. Any idea how much I would be looking at for a SS six vane stator? Not found one yet but I was looking at direct replacement parts.
