Thread: sucked up....
07-04-2007, 01:35 PM #1
cruising around today and all of the sudden ski started to shudder. wouldnt go past like 7 mph. luckily was only like 3/8 ths of a mile from the launch site. just pulled it out of the water assuming i sucked up a weed. got home and looked up inside the intake grate and there is a small piece of plywood lodged in between the wear ring and the blade of the impeller. how do i get this out and is there any chance that the impeller is damaged? thanks,len.

I have removed a few small pieces of cypress over the years with no problemos... rocks are a different story.

ok, but how to remove. from the front or back? drop the intake grate or come in from the back?

On the Yamaha, I was able to clear mine after removing the intake grate, wood came right out just grabbed it. Keep in mind that was a water-soaked cypress stick, not sure about plywood.

I would pull the pump off for a couple of reasons.
1 being there is a good chance the inserts will pull out when you remove the intake grate.
2 probably going to be easier to pull out whatever you have stuck in there with out having to go through the pump tunnel.
3 with the pump off you can see the wear ring and prop, inspect for damage and replace if need be
