Taking the pump off..
How much give does the pump actually give? I've got the nozzle off the ski and the 4 nuts off the pump but the pump which houses the impeller seams completely stuck on there.. I tried lightly with a pry bar to break it loose with no avail.. Is there any tricks to taking this off?

if it not want to come out you can remove the c-clip on the inside and remove the pump with the driveshaft

Okay.. Took me 4 hours to pull the pump... The PO put something on one of the pump loops that goes over the bolt.. I had to take a knife and chisel off what ever was on the pump blocking the pump from coming off.. I'll get some pics of that in a little bit..
Also. I'm not sure if the PO swapped impellers or not.. Once I get the old impeller out ill post pics.. There is the same green nose cone that came with my solas... Also the old impeller is shiney like the solas..

Most likely aftermarket then.
Pull and confirm pitch.
i see so many skis come through shop that previous owners threw on the "shiny prop to make it faster" and pitch is way off.

as a precaution, i send the supercharger out for a rebuild, when jerry sent it back to me, i had asked if there were the original ceramic washers inside the machine, he said that there were metal washers already installed, this was another red flag for me... i blew it off..
now, today i wanted to replace my impeller... i noticed that were was some sort of epoxy inside the holes on the jet pump, took me 7 hours to chisel out the pump only to find that a 14/19 impeller was already installed... this is the third red flag on this ski for me.. im seriously thinking that the dealer swapped hour meters and sold me a ski that they claim had only 7 hours when in reality.. it has MUCH more..
i think my next step is going to pay to have a different dealer hook it up to the computer and see how many hours are on the ECU.. if its anything more then what is on my hour meter, i might consider taking legal actions against the dealer.. does this seam like something i have a case over?? what would yall do in a situation like this ??
