Hello, my name us Charles. I will assist you.

Expert:  Charles replied 9 months ago.

Yes, Im here. Shift the ski and see of the bucket on the nozzle and see if it is actually moving.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.

Impeller moving. Ski not spitting water. Would fipping it cause an issue with water pump or is it electrical?

Expert:  Charles replied 9 months ago.

What year is the ski? What brand?

Seadoo 2001 GTS

sons friend rolled it, filled engine compartment with water. Drained it, got water out of cylinders now no water shooting and it's not spitting.

Expert:  Charles replied 9 months ago.

so no water flow at all?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.

None, since it turned over runs ok but don't want to run with it not spitting water.

Expert:  Charles replied 9 months ago.

Look at the impeller from the grates. See if you can measure the distance from the impeller edge to the wearing ring.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.

I tried to measure impeller from back of motor casing to where go to the back. I did this under water through the grates. 9 inches?

Expert:  Charles replied 9 months ago.

Looking it up.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.

I think 9 inches. I measured in the water through the the grates

Customer: replied 9 months ago.

Wonder if there is some type of switch or fuse that kicked off the waterpump

Expert:  Charles replied 9 months ago.

the impeller is direct coupled ti the engine. When the engine spins, so does the impeller. The reading that you are looking for on the impeller is 0.040" from the tip of the blade to the wear ring. Any more that that, the ski will not function correctly.

Relist: Inaccurate answer.
This is a water propulsion question not an impeller question
