    Removing Front Pump Cone thing

    Whatever it is called I have been told by removing this you will in the end help lessen buck and it will give you mph on top because it makes the flow of water more even to the pump.

    Is this right? I was thinking about taking things apart just to remove that.

    What do guys think?

    On my testing there has been no gain in speed. I
    have lost speed on some props and others it made
    no difference in speed. There bad about coming off,
    and it does help on a fast ski over 80 with bucking
    issues. So you just need to test it on your boat. Results
    will vary.

    Chris, there are too many variables. This is just like the buck issue, everyones ski is a little different and info from one ski does not apply to another. I do not have the cone on my Dynafly but I did not do any back to back testing so I cant tell you how it affected my boat.

    Hmmm, I have never taken out the driveshaft before. Is it as easy as taking those 4 long bolts of out the pump and pulling it all out? Then how hard is it to remove the cone?

    The four bolts are easy to get off. Depending on how well the pump was sealed when the prop was put in, will make the process of pulling the pump a pain or a breeze. If it is stuck real goo just take 2 flat head screwdrivers and gently tap them into the "prying tabs" and let them sit there for a little while and it will come off that way.

    The cone just pushes into the front of the "hub" of the prop and is held there by an O-ring. There are slots on the side of the cone that you can put a screwdriver in to pop it off.

    just remove your intake grate and slide the cone forward and cut it off with a dremel, take sless than 10 minutes!

    Ive never thought about doing it that way, but if you want to do it that way, cool.

    And if it slows your ski down just PM suckawang (suckmywake) and get him to send you a new one.

    So I have been looking at the Solas page and it says it reduces cavitation to have it? True or untrue? lol


    Im not sure I really have to worry about cavitation with this 14/20 anyways.
