chips out of 2 stator blades...
...........I knew I had 2 slightly bent blades on the impellor of my '02 Virage 700 so I purchased a new impellor. Today When I pulled pump apart to do a yearly sand blast, Zinc cromate, and repaint (see picture) I see that the stator is chipped on 2 blades. In the shape it is it still does 46-48mph gps but there is noticable cavitation out of the hole. Since this is just going to be my kids toy I am wondering how much efficency is lost with chips in the stator? Isn't it more important that the impellor is perfect vs. stator being perfect? I see there is a few stators for sale in lthe classifieds but they seem a little overpriced. Will any 5 vain stator work?

Aluminum stators are pretty much "consumables". Replace as needed...or find one hell of a welder!

All of the 5 vein stators are the same unless of course you purchase something "one off".
Something went through that bad boy.
