    Taking on water ?

    Hi

    I got an 05 rxt and every time I rode it it dripped bugger all watee when removing deain plugs. ... I mean not even enough to full a shot glass.

    Recebtly I had a go at changing wear ring which I followed guides on here. Shop manual and advise..
    I beleive it went well for my first time

    The 2nd time I took it out after this after use ipened drain pkugs and reckon it drained near galf a litre of water.

    The only difference with this ride to any ithers ive had is I did leave it sit in the water for an hour over lunch.

    When I washed it and ran it on the hose for 90 secs I tilted it up to drain water out of foot wells and again from the drain plugs an abnormal amount of water came out

    Any advise on where to start looking? Or is this normal?

    Did you support the drive shaft when you removed the pump.

    Carbon seal will not be a factor if it is on the hose. Run the ski on the hose with the seat off any the leak should be fairly obvious, make sure not to run for more than 2 minutes or so.

    The drive shaft support is for re-installing the pump, makes it easier to get the drive shaft started, you can leave the drive shaft lay and it won't hurt anything while you are working on the pump.

    A few drops is totally normal, a gallon or two i would consider a problem. First thing I would check is the impeller nose cone, if it wasn't tightened properly they can ride up the drive shaft and cause serious failure at the carbon seal. They are famous for these problems, i take them off and leave them off, but I only ride in salt water once a year. Other than that you may need to make sure that the preload on the carbon ring is good, I use large zip ties to increase preload on a temporary basis until i replace the belows, ring, and hat.

    Did you make sure the orings stayed in place on the pump support and on the steering nozzle to the pump surface??

    That would be the first thing I looked at....

    this might sound like a stretch, but check the o-rings on the drain plugs had mine on the 06 cracked and let water into hull, found it by tilting ski up and filling inside of hull with a few inches water and sure enough it was leaking around the plugs, i change them now every other year
