    Catastrophic Failure

    So, I finally got my motor on the engine stand, and check out my oil pump housing damage. Any ideas on being able to use the housing still? I don't know if this will affect oil pressure, PLEASE HELP! Oh, and sorry about the quality of the pictures, I can try to get some better ones if these are too shoddy, but I am kinda stuck with the camera, beings as I am about to throw down some serious cash for some engine internals...

    What's the history on the engine? Did the ceramics fail and were just replaced without cleaning the engine? Or was the ski just purchased without any history? ... Ron

    It failed when a friend was riding it, I have owned the ski for 2 years now, bought it from a dealer, it was owned by some elderly gentleman in Wilmington, NC before I bought it, not failures before this one.It had riva washers and ceramic bearings in it. Check out the ceramic bearings...

    I think that they did do ok, but I spanked my ski like and 8 year old kid at wal-mart, and I think supercharger clutches are not for me, I am going to go the turbo route with open loop cooling. Does anyone think the housing is still useable?

    I realize it needs a complete rebuild, but do I need to get a new housing for the oil pumps, the circular edge is fine, the gouging is on the flat edge on the inside, will this effect my oil pressure once the rebuild is complete?

    I have never worked with these kinds of oil pumps in my life, and I need to know if the housing is re-useable after a failure like this, I do not know, I am just asking for a little bit of advice.

    I think a lot of folks would love to give advise, but the quality of the pic is so poor it's impossible to see what the damage is. Can you borrow a camera? Cell phone pix are worthless.

    If the gouges in the housing are in any way going to allow movement of the impellers or contact a sealing surface, you need to replace it. I see these on Ebay all the time.

    Did you really tatoo your arm like that?
