This Impeller and pump was damaged from starting the ski in shallow water.
Running a Watercrfaft in Shallow water or near land can suck up debris off the bottom and destroy the pump or wear ring. Always make sure to have atleast 2 ft of water under the ski at idle.
Be carefull in shallow water. This guy almost did not live to tell the story.
We had a SeaDoo RXT Jet Ski come in this week for a new motor! We found the oil level an inch or more above the high mark on the dipstick. We also observed oil inside the intake boot attached to the supercharger, after removing the intake we found oil inside the intake that was [...]
Bearing failure on the supercharger caused the impeller shaft to wobble and the impeller to rub against the hausing. The ski had less than 100 hours. :-/
Do you have any of these symptoms on your Carbureted 2-stroke engine? - No response when applying throttle. - Ski rev's when out of the water but will not in the water. - Bogging when going from idle to full throttle - Surging of revs - Intermittent or sudden cutting out of engine after planning off or applying [...]
Found this little guy in the case of today's build. The supercharger shaft was bent and the gear on the supercharger was missing, flywheel teeth destroyed. The customer claims the supercharger was rebuilt less than 10 hours before with an OEM Seadoo Kit.
There are 3 primary reasons to rebuild your supercharger: Prevent bearing failure. The impeller spins up to speeds of 50,000 RPM, and the bearings are rated at 2 years or 100 hours. Prevent washer failure. As the clutch wears, inducing additional friction and heat to the washers, which can cause a catastrophic failure. Restore Lost Performance. When the [...]
The impeller shows cavitation marks from the leading edge of the impeller back. The leading edge of the impeller has been damaged from debris passing into the pump. The edge of the impeller will have to be filled back or replaced.
A customer brought in this Sea-Doo that had been split at the bond line.The owner had left the Watercraft sitting at his dock during a July weekend with a 1/2 tank of gas. He jumps on his Seadoo and hits the start button and boom. Previously he had the starter replaced and new fuel line's [...]
This gummy substance is a result of of fuel being left inside of a carburetor for who knows how long. More often than not almost all Watercraft have some debris or deposits inside the carburetor.There is no magic chemical in a bottle or treatment that can remove severely gummed carburetor's.
Exhaust port side of piston damaged
Rock caught in the pump causing cavitation..We will have to replace the wear ring and clean the impeller edges.
Common issue with older seadoo’s is broken or missing oil line’s.
