    4-Tech is drving me nutz.. Rev & no Go

    Just back from over seas, got the ski's out of storage.. Son washed the motor down for me with a hose.. (He is 5 so I forgive) I flushed all of the oil and water out with a pump about five times. The motor runs great put ski in to the water today and it would not move, It was not pulling in water to cool as well.. Can you direct me to the right how to page so I can fix this issue

    welcome to the forum. I moved this to the 4-tec performance section for visibility.

    We need some more information. What year? What model? How many rpm at idle and in the water and out? What does it feel like or do when you hit the throttle in the water?

    It almost sounds like something is in the pump preventing water flow through it. Why did you change the oil a bunch of times, your kid got water in the engine? How?

    Does the ski vibrate when you rev the engine? Possibly the impeller bearings are froze or driveshaft splines are stripped.

    The motor revs very well. To back the story up the five year old ran the hose into the oil. I was able to sump the oil out and over a few changes it came out clear.
    That issue is resolved. Now the issue is that the drive shaft will not spin The model is a 2002 GTX 4-tech fuel injected no charger.
    I removed the impeller and the shaft spins freely without any resistance at all. I am hoping that perhaps it will be something simple. I am looking at removing the shaft however I have come to an impass, there are two bearings on the shaft and they will not budge do I cut them off and replace or am I doing something wrong

    That's what it sounds like.
