    I took off the pump for the first time.....

    I pulled the pump last night.
    As expected the buttery wear ring was worn.
    I was running a solid 69.8 and touched 70 with it on last time I was out.
    I wonder what it will go like with a new one?
    Also, the pump seal was not installed propely.
    I can't wait to fix it and get out.

    BTW,
    Is there not supposed to be a spacer at the end of the driveshaft?

    The boot is still on the shaft. It is snug and I will need to heat it up to get it off. My garage is about 10 degrees F right now.
    Some of the older sea doo pumps I have taken off have a rubber spacer between the end of the driveshaft and the impeller.

    I have to stick with plastic. Expensive mods are out these days due to the little one.

    I didn't find or see the rubber plug at the end of the shaft you're talking about.

    I was concerned though. I forgot to put one on my XPL and had the shaft come apart running WOT. I looked at the fische and didn't see one for the RXP.

    My season goes from March to November usually.
    I was worried about the plug too. My buddies GSX shaft came out and made a real mess.
