Goin bad 39 hrs!
Thought I would check my pump bearings. Man I'm glad I did the prop spun smooth with no bumps or bad spots I was going to put back in but decided to go ahead and pull it apart while I had pump out of ski. Front bearing burning up! No sign of water in bearing it was just goin out! Does anyone know if a heavy duty bearing is available.

nothing new available looks exactly what has happenend to us all. its been said here before keep a tight service replacement schedule on it.

along with a mod we will be doing will dramaticly reduce the load on the front bearings,
You can do a double front bearing as 1 option
I find that every 20hrs I just pull my pump and check,better too be safe than sorry, As that picture you show has happened to me twice so far,
once we validate the durability of our mod we will post them

The 2 bearing upgrade do you just turn shaft enough to make room for the other bearing? Did they fix the 260 or will it be the same problem?

picking up the bearings on friday, an engineer friend at work and his bearing supplier have sourced me some bearings to try, they have a higher temp and load rating, will keep you posted. I am trying to find a solution so I don't have to graft a poo pump in their. Its definately one thin gin their favour is pump design. Their bearing is huge compared to ours.

Taking pump to dealer said it would be cover under warranty might as well get some of my money back.
