Thread: No Thrust???

  1. #1
    Hey guys, I think I have the same problem. I have a 2000 SLH that runs fine when I have the hose hooked up, but as soon as I put it in the water it will idle and move at slow speeds then as soon as I give it gas it sounds like its revving up and vibrating like crazy. I had it out last sunday and it ran great all day until I went to leave. It started acting up on the way in, it would take off then lose what I thought was power. I replaced the plugs and put it in the water today, just to find it is still messing up. This is my first ski and I have no problem working on it I just don't know exactly what all the parts you all are talking about. Does this sound like my problem also. Thanks ahead of time.

    Pull the pump and verify the splines of the driveshaft, impeller and engine coupler.

    Cool man, just one problem.....where is the pump. Do you know of where I can find a parts diagram. Sorry man, like I said this is my first ski. I know I can fix it I just don't know what everything is just yet.

    Here's a picture but you can also go to the tech section and download the directions from the service manual. You're basically going to remove the #33 bolts and remove the pump.
