Question re FXHO Bearings being replaced
My ski started making a whinning noise on the week end.
I have pulled the pump out and had a look.
One bearing has clearly failed due to the axial load and metal has got into the other bearing and pitted the races on that one as well.
The question I have is related to the Drive Shaft.
Where the seals are loacted on the shaft - the surface is very shinny.
There appears to be a couple of very small grooves - one of them may be 3 thou.
The Ski has done 150 hours...
In your experience - is this normal?
Is this likely to cause the seals not to be able to seal water out?
Should I be looking at a new shaft as well or not worry about it or can it be repaired somehow?
