    Nose cone keeps coming off...

    The nose cone keeps coming off the prop on my GTX, I can`t seem to find out why. Since I have purchased a new cone (seal/boot) since the modded skat pump and prop, 12 hours later and it`s off, went for a ride to test IC cooling lines and it`s off again, How in the hell do you keep that sucker on there, tried red loc-tite already, remember this is the push-on one not the threaded cone...PR...

    Take the nose cone and throw it away. Your ski will be faster without it.

    yea, that'll solve the problem, lol....

    slap some anti-sieze on the drive shaft or something, and just let it be. who cares about the salt water.... it's getting in there anyway, just not with as much pressure.

    after u ride, just get under the ski and nail the prop-driveshaft union with some bombardier lube.

    Jer: it rattles so loud when the boot comes off, don`t you notice that on your ski`s?

    Would prop harmonics be throwing the boot off?

    Steve: I wonder if the drive shaft walks enough to push it off. This time I put less grease on there so as if it doesn`t get pushed off from hydraulic action...when sliding the pump back on or when it fires up the first time afterwards.

    I can def feel something dif when that boot comes off, seems to cavitate alittle when accelerating moderatly from a stop...PR...

    Put a piece of rubber hose in the front of your impeller about 1/2 " wide This will help. It keeps a little pressure on the driveshaft.

    Take it off.

    Ride more, worry less.
