    Sounds likethe wearing in the jetpump is shot,look in the back with a flashlight,if you see white around the impeller you need a new wearring.

    cause my local mechanic told me to check the teeth on the shaft if they where bad to change the shaft but im the second owner of this ski the first owner is my best friend and i had asked him if he ever changed the shaft he told me no so i went and changed it since the ski is 12 years old and i still have the problem.

    Its a real simple system,either the splines in the pto are bad or the splines in the impeller are bad.

    My guess would be the pto flywheel.
