Hello, my name us Charles. I will assist you.
It the impeller on the ski, actually still turning?
Can't tell, it was turned over then water filled engine compartment. Cleaned plugs etc and it runs ok no water being pushed out.
Ok, Are you near the ski now?
Yes, i underneath. Impeller seems to be spinning
Yes, lapel let is spinning
Yes, impleller is spinning
Charles you still there?
Yes, Im here. Shift the ski and see of the bucket on the nozzle and see if it is actually moving.
Impeller moving. Ski not spitting water. Would fipping it cause an issue with water pump or is it electrical?
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.
so no water flow at all?
None, since it turned over runs ok but don't want to run with it not spitting water.
Look at the impeller from the grates. See if you can measure the distance from the impeller edge to the wearing ring.
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?
Looking it up.
I think 9 inches. I measured in the water through the the grates
Wonder if there is some type of switch or fuse that kicked off the waterpump
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.
