    Question 1996 GTS

    Hello all, I just recently purchased a 96 GTS which I am pretty sure that I got a real good deal on ( 600.00 with dual trailer) and was wondering if I neeeded to look out for or do certain things to it. The ski fires up and runs well, but I tried to pull a tube with it and it would not come up on plane. I am assuming that it needs a wear ring put in it, any suggestions? The ski comes up on plane fine with just somebody riding it with out trying to pull a tube. Thanks in advance!!!

    Check to see if it has the Gray Tempo fuel lines. If it does, you should replace them, replace the fuel selector and clean the filter in the carb. Mine had a similar issue and the fuel lines had broken down and clogged the fuel selector and filter in the carb and it would cut on on top end. I also think that motor is about 60hp. Not sure if it would pull a tube or not. I havent tried it with my 85hp 1998 GTS.

    If you are sure you have bad cavitation when pulling tube then you are looking in right direction pump, seal, impeller and wear ring. It should be in that area. just my opinion Robin

    sounds like a wear ring...check the gap between the impeller blade and the wear ring...if it's outta spec, then you know whats wrong

    I think that I will take a look at the wear ring and see if it is within spec. Thanks to all that replied.
