    If you were unfortunate enough to have a ceramic washer failure this is what your oil pumps will look like and will need to be replaced.

    If you don't replace the oil pumps they will eventually fail causing catastrophic engine damage.

    The best thing to do is prevent the failure in the first place by having metal washers installed into your supercharger.

    Give it a week or two and you will have a few more washer failure threads to add to that list.

    What baffles me is why Seadoo has taken so long in provding a resolution. Riva and Green Hulk are aftermarket solutions but at a preemptive cost to the owner.

    I can tell you I am FAR MORE comfortable riding with the metal washers than the first 8 hours with the ceramic washers.

    I just recently bought an 06 4tec with 60 hours on it. I believe the owner said the ceramic washers went at some point but they were replaced with riva ones. He did not mention anything about replacing the oil pump and I did not know enough to ask. Is the oil pump something I should replace before putting the motor in? Also is there anything else I should look at while the motor is out to prevent failure?

    I work at a dealership and it is pretty much a given to replace the engine covers/ oil pumps when the washers fail. The Mag cover oil pump gets pitted but the front oil pump seems to collect all larger ceramic fragments. Never the less I have replaced even crankshafts because finer parts have damaged bearings and wore a tiny groove in the crank journal. I know it may be paranoid but hey I know that the engines I build are perfect and isn't going to fail for any stupid reason! Besides Bombardier pays for it not the customer...so why not help them out as much as i can

    sc rebuilt

    I have a 2003 and a 2004 sea doo gtx sc. I want to know the total price to rebuild them. There is nothing wrong with them but I don't want to take the chance.
