Thread: rev limiter

  1. #1

    rev limiter

    Got one problem solved, now another. Imajine that. When i gun it out of tha hole my RPM's jump up to bout 8220-8230 which is riding tha rev limiter then after a second or two it catches and takes off. Its not the impellor (nothing you can visually tell anyway), not the wear ring (stainless steel) not tha pump seal (brand new) any other suggestions out there on what to check or change? I've got 123 hours on it and the original carbon seal ring is still on there.

    2006 RXP w/ RIVA STAGE II

You're cavitating...Its not the impellor (nothing you can visually tell anyway), not the wear ring (stainless steel) What is the gap between the impellor and ring? I'm guessing the prop needs to be built back up... not tha pump seal (brand new) any other suggestions out there on what to check or change? I've got 123 hours on it and the original carbon seal ring is still on there. If you aren't leaking water, the seal is still good...

    +1, The SS wear ring wears your prop!! I usually send mine off once a year to be reworked.
