    Noise

    Greetings--

    04 GTX SC around 60 hrs @ 1 yr old. Wear Ring has 10-12 hrs on it.

    THis Doo is noisy when accelerating. The "engine?" noise it makes overshadows the SC whine.

    Our other GTX is noticeable quieter and one can easily hear the SC whine when running. Its also a couple MPH faster (pouting 'cause its Robin's).

    It was making this noise last year. Folks suggested replacing the wear ring--done but no change.

    Where else should I look ? or is this normal operation ?

    Thanks--

    Would the drive shaft carbon seal going out cause noise ? I havent noticed any leaks.

    How were the bearings in the pump? grease?
    What kind of noise are you talking about? whirring? tapping, screeching? knocking? any vibration?...PR...

    Did you check the front motor mount, ya never know!?

    Bearings OK-
    Greese in pump

    No vibration-- just noise.

    Its more of a "grinding" noise is the best I can describe it. Robin's ski purrs-- I can hear the SC whine when I get to ride hers (infrequently LOL)
    Mine growls or grinds- I can't hear the SC whine over the noise.

    The SC is apparently working OK-- full RPM 60+ a little MPH.
