    Running ski WITHOUT Carbon ring?

    Im looking to run the ski for an extended amount of time on the trailer to diagnose a oil pressure issue.

    Pull the circlip off the driveshaft and slide the metal top collar forward and you wont have any issues...

    I was thinking about this too since I am about to finish a head gasket and want to do an oil change. I was thinking of putting water on the ride plate to cool it and loosly put the pump on, but I was wondering g if the driveshaft would bounce fore/aft since the carbon ring is what locates the shaft placement

    I considered that as well lightning 1. I'm going to keep an eye on it at idle then slightly rev motor. If needed ill put a little paper in the prop to stop it

    How??

    If you remove the circlip that holds the carbon ring and metal hat in place there will be no tension on the carbon ring so it will not get hot...

    If your pump is loose and you run the ski...It needs to be tight so the drive shaft doesnt walk.....
