    98 GSX LTD Spin shaft by hand???

    I am not sure whats going on but this is the second ski that has been in my garage today that a friend is having a problem with... I think I am going to put up a sign 4-tec's only...

    This dip s**t started the ski while beached. He heard a loud sound and then shut it off right away. I just reached in and grabbed the shaft by the carbon seal and it spins freely. Basically it spins the impeller and makes a sound at the PTO inside the housing.

    What could have happened and how bad could it be? I'll pull it apart tomorrow, hoping someone could send me in a good direction.

    Thanks.
