    Rocks and pumps don't mix

    Just thought I'd show why we need to run in 3 ft. of water ! Previous owner liked to ride in a fairly shallow river. The pictures don't do it justice. I've smoothed out the rough edges, but I KNOW this thing's gonna cavitate like a mofo.

    Yeah, it's hard to see the damage to the vanes without taking it apart. At least I have a brand new Solas 12/20 and wear ring to put in there. BTW, didn't have to freeze the pump, just removed the screws and it pulled right out. The bearings and seals all looked good so I'll try to find an 04 housing and go from there.

    yeah that`s right, the plastic pump has 2 small screws that keep the wear ring from spining, and the metal pumps are press/interference fit...PR...

    to my knowledge...unfortunately.. if u find an 04 pump.. the internals from your 03 pump won't work in the 04 pump... so keep that in mind.

    The sea doo pumps (all of them) are such a cash grab. The wear ring design is the worst pump design going.
    Its too bad you couldn't retrofit an old Polaris pump on to it.

    Been there, done that, got the credit card bill to prove it. When my SC was only 9 hours old an still in breakin, I was riding at my local reservoir which was still at winter level. I went into an area I had been dozens of times and found out that it nver was even deep in the summer but in the winter , it was ~1' deep. The interesting part was my wifes FX-140 went into it too and sucked uo rocks but came out no problem. My SC ended up with a $400 repair bill
