    Wear ring & prop question

    Took my RXP to the dealer to service the pump, change wear ring & install a solas prop. When i first rode it would not hook up the, rpms would just spin. after a while it would start to hook up a little better but when you give it gas nothing. when i was going back to the dock it felt alot better but i was to scared to give it gas. Is this the wear ring setting in in? Any suggestions. At the dock i looked at the wear ring and no grooves or nothing, looked good and the pump was clean. the prop is a solas 14/19

    Re: Wear ring & prop question

    What were your RPM's? Your prop may need to be tweeked. When you say service the pump, did they do any other service such as an oil change or anything else??

    No oil change just change wear ring pump service (replcae the grease in the cone) no o-rings etc & a new impeller.

    O.k i need to learn to type. 1 pump service 2 replace wear ring 3 install new impeller. that is what was done . As far as rpm the ski was just slipping but as i was getting closer to the dock i felt it was starting to hook up better.

    They may have misaligned or pinched the seal that goes between the pump and hull allowing it to suck air and cavitate. This condition tends to clear up as you gain momentum. It happened to me once, though my dealer didn't do it... I did

    can you visually see the rubber seal? if you could let me know how. when looking through the intake it has a green nut on the shaft.

    NO you can't see it! You must remove the pump. But what it does is make a tight fit to the hull and when it is on incorrect it will suck air and cause the ski to cavitate badly. And this is what you are feeling.

    Shibby is right... those Solas "green" nose cones are notorious for coming off the impellers, moving down the shaft, and causing cavitation. Can you tell if the nose cone is still attached to the impeller? Reach up and see if it can be slid along the shaft. Use a long screw driver if need be, but be careful not to damage it.
