pump corrosion on the inner surfaces
Still pretty new to this all, but making progress in replacing the impeller and rebuilding the pump (cone had lots of water in it); waiting for the rebuild kit, tools and the refurb impeller this week.
My question: This is a salt water machine 2002 GTX 4-Tec (when I am done with this one I will move onto the other one which is fresh water only) the venturi and nozzle are heavily corroded and deeply pitted. Do I just put it all back together and let it continue to rot or do I prime and paint?

making progress - 2 questions
1) I have the impeller off and I can not find a part number anywhere on it. It needs to be refurbed. I am assuming this is after market
2) With the pump apart the impeller shaft does not turn in the main bearing, I am assuming I need a new shaft along with a pump rebuild kit, correct?

you can sandblast or sand down rough spots, prime and paint. it will look like new
you should just look for a used 2004 or newer aluminum pump housing. swap it in, normally they sell complete, just put on your impeller and go.
can be bought for 250-350 usually.
look for a used solas impeller or OEM from your ski, they can be hd very cheep.
most people are swapping out for upgraded parts, so there old oem stuff is almost worthless
just get the right prop...
is yours a 155hp, 185 hp, or 215hp???? 4tec correct???

also available are tons of the older plastic impeller housings , like you have, could getone of those instead of the aluminum housing, for 100-200.
post up in the classifieds WTB pump housing for 2002, plastic or aluminum, and impeller.
you will get responses
i have a mint 185hp impeller i coud sell ya but i think you need the 155hp unit.
the solas would be an 11/19 for the 155 hp skis.
solas 12/20 for the 185 hp skis, there is a 12/20 right now in te classifieds

02 in the NA 155 hp only.
The solas replacement is a 11/19 prop.
I would think that there'd be lots of good used
oem props out there.
I don't think having the 04+ alum pump housing is a must
on the NA 155 engines.. Just the 185 s/c engines would
flex the plastic pumps (2003). The oem plastic pump will
work fine. ( i've got 1 too since I upgraded to alum).

ya i agree, the plastic is fine, and plenty available too.
