Thread: Screaming(literally) SeaDoo
10-13-2013, 06:34 PM #1
While running WOT on a lake, the ski started screaming.Sounded like 50 loose fan belts, I had to get towed home.
First thought wasthe supercharger(95 Hrs) but itís OK. Pulled the pump it seems OK. This is as faras I've had the ski apart. Oilfilter looks clean, Oil on dipstick looks good. Carbon seal feels smooth when Imove it back and forth, good pressure keeping it seated.
Iíd appreciateany ideas/suggestions. Thanks Ed.

2010 was a bad year for drive shafts. Pull your impeller and check the drive shaft splines, bet they're gone. Happened to me and I was able to get replaced under warranty.

The pump feels OK. Turns smooth no rough feel. As bad as the noise was I thought Iíd find something destroyed.
Just saw the spline post. I guess I need to pull the shaft and check it. I should probably be replacing the carbon ring with 95 hrs and it's apart.

I hadnít looked that close at the splines when I pulled the pump. They do look in bad shape. I was going to change the impeller anyway. Iíve been told the 22R is too much prop. I'm surprised at the rust. I put some lube on when I assembled it. I guess I should have the pump bearings replaced while it's out. jerry probably does it.

You did good to almost get 100 hrs out of the drive shaft.
I've seen a lot of them fail at 50 hrs or less.

His SC is good for another 100 hours as it is on the 200 hour schedule isn't it??
