could be. I've had quite a few people ask me about others rebuilding their pump for them. I say the same thing over and over, "if it's a friend helping you do it, have at it. If it's someone that's going to charge you to do it, then take it to someone in the business".
The bottom line, people in the business have guarantees, they have all the right equipment and most have many years of experience. The ones that haven't been in the biz for a few years still have rebuilt more pumps than the average smoe.
Doing it yourself is one thing, paying someone is what this is all about.
Here's a partial list of some pump people out there, in no particular order-
Marine Performance Design - MPD
Jet Boat Performance
Jet Pump Repair
Jim Brock at Cyclone Marine -818-890-1867
I'm sure there's many more that I don't have info on. If anyone wants to add to the list, please do.
I compare all this to what's happening in the construction industry....lots of unlicensed contractors out there. People have very little, if any, recourse against a person that is unlicensed or isn't in the business.
