Pump This Up! Hhahahahah!
i took my pump off to install my stainless wear ring and i notice my pump shoe has a groove about 3/8" into my shoe and about 1/8" deep all the way around????? so i take the prop out of the pump and stick it on the shaft and its a good 1"+ away from where the groved edge in the pump shoe starts and goes forward towards the front of the boat 3/8" into the shoe 1/8" deep all the way around. it looks as though it was the prop cutting into the pump shoe but i cannot for the life of me figure out how it could travel 1"+ towards the front of the boat inside the pump itself and another 3/8" deeper out of the pump carving into the pump shoe because the prop DOESNT MOVE forwards or back after being tightened into the pump itself to my knowledge and sets 1"+ deep inside the pump to begin with so im LOST!!!!! how could the prop travel 1 3/8"+ back and forth in the pump and eat that groove into the back of that shoe? just tell a REDNECK HILLBILLY PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!

The same thing happened to mine. All I can tell you is at some point you sucked something through the pump and gouged it as the prop turned it, before sucking it out through the nozzle!

i was thinking a stick could have been in there or something of that nature but it was weird when i looked and it was so even and cut around the inside of the pump shoe it tripped me out like the blade had MOVED even though i know it CANT!!

Your impeller probably came loose and moved forward. When it comes loose it can push the whole motor forward.
