    Default Jet rebuild question and runing on the trailer.

    OK first question... Motor is out of the boat so that i could pull the shaft out. Once the motor goes back in i want to crank it up and make sure my head gasket replacement went as planned. The shaft is in but the impeller is not on. I know you should not run the pump dry because of wear on the wear ring but what about just having the shaft installed with no impeller? Is that an issue?


    Second question: Installing wear ring. Which direction? The wear ring has a beveled edge on one side. Does that bevel go towards the suction housing or away? I pulled my old one like 3 months ago and dont remember. I think the bevel goes toward the suction housing but not 100%.

    Thanks!!

    You can get away running the motor without the impeller in the pump. Be sure to grease the shaft packings real good and do NOT tighten them. Grease all of the seals. Grease the bowl seal and bushings and put the bowl on with at least two bolts and you can run it. DO NOT run it without the bowl on!

    Bevel goes towards the suction.

    I just got the carpet ordered and waiting for the last of the stuff to come in. The only big things left are to lay carpet put the engine back in and rebuild the carb. I hope to have it all buttoned up by the end of march and making test runs on Mt Island by april 1.

    Im not sure whats going on here in the south but i know a few of you boys got some stout rigs that i would love to come watch race. where can i get info on SHB events? Im game for just about anything in NC SC Ga or even Va.


    Edit: Here is the ride with the gas guzzler.. Im not sure which one is which..

    you should be able to pull your driveline out without pulling the motor.

    Remember if youre taking it to the launch ramp you will want to have the impeller installed or there will be no water pumping through the engine and all the work you did fixing the heads would go to shit without water!

    The impeller shaft on my model pump does not pull out backwards with out removing the entire suction housing.. So the only way to pull it it is to yank the motor and do it that way...
