Jet Pump: Salt water really KILLS!
So I got my ride plate in after a while of working on other stuff, no real hurry cause the weather.
So I Got to my jet pump and impeller I took out my impeller just to check the wear ring and was greatly disappointed, I found out that the wear ring actually had chunks missing and even worse, there was water and SAND in the bearings!
I have no idea of how such large grains of sand got into the bearing houseing.
I took some pictures.
What would this whole setup cost me?
3. wear ring
cause by the looks of it this one has corroded a way for that stuff to get in.

WOW that looks really bad. maybe you shuold look at buying a used pump. MAN the salt really is a killer.

this thing looks as if it was kept in the water all the time.
And if you know someone with a used one please let me know.

that is the 03 pump you are better off getting a metal pump. you will not have the wear ring problem from pump flex.

I already bought a new one, and to be honest, I dought the engine will last the life of the pump, its got 120hours but has never been taken care of, the only reason the people sold it cause it refused to go (limp mode) that was from the oil sensor. but on the inside it looks new, but everything that sat in the water is trash
pretty much everything.
It's kinna funny cause I was like, "Man, I know i have to but i dont want to take that off." cause i knew it would be bad. good thing my impeller is not broke or chiped $250 for that.

you definitely need to get a 2004 or newer pump from a RXP RXT or GTX SC.
it will be aluminum pump instead of plastic.
then you need to get a wear ring for a GTX SC pump, 185hp.
NOT a wear ring from the bigger engined skis.
the pump housings are all the same, BUT the impellers and wear rings are different.
you need to reuse your impeller and get the proper(185hp version) wear ring.
the bigger HP skis has bigger impellers and wear rings.
used pump should be 250ish in good condition, new wear ring from GH.net shoud be 40ish.
