    How many hours are on the ski? Along with what they mentioned in post before me, the pump seal is somtimes a quick fix, along with carbon ring wear, engine alignment. I had a problem a while back where it seemed nothing I could do would fix my cavitation. I got some advice from Stan and Jerry on spacing the rubber boot slightly foward pressing the carbon ring against the metal ring!!! It WORKED GREAT!

    What size prop are you using skat trak 15/19 or solas 15/20 with your set-up? Pitching your prop and playing your your nozzle rings wil fix that problem...

    Rpms are 8500 to 8550, prop is 14/19, its only off the start with pump nozzle all the way down...could this also have an affect?

    14/19?? 4-blade?? Being underpropped would cause these symptoms.

    You need to get rid of that 14-19 for sure! 15-20 or 15-19 3 blade. The 15-19 3 blade would be the best match for the X. I have several 3 blades if you want to try them.
