    Default Jet Pump Question

    Just removed impeller from legand pump and this is what i found.
    Is this normal wear and tear.
    And how do I get the old wear ring out.

    It looks like a few too many dry starts. On long road trips it is good to cover the intake to prevent road debris from collecting in the pump.
    It is real easy, just take a butane/propane torch and heat the wear-ring up and the insolator will melt so you can pry it out easily with a screw driver or two.

    As said, heat the wear ring up with a torch and it will come out easy. Definitely time for a new impeller too.

    Oddly enough, I had the wear surface on mine galled up like that from too many skinny river and dry runs. I just filled the grooves in with Permatex "The right Stuff" silicone. Smoothed it into the grooves and ran the boat for another 2 months. Just pulled the impeller today. No more grooves and the silicone never budged. Gained the power back and never noticed any difference. Makes me wonder why Berk doesn't make something simular.

    I crawled under my trailer with a nice towel and a staplegun.Fold the towel in half,staple it to the bunks real snug to the intake. After two or three outings, you will undo one side and snug it up. Worked for two years so far.

    check with dewaye at hi-tech , i remember that at one time he marketed a guard or plate that went on the trailer bunks to protect the pump.

    It sux that his cover wouldn't fit my trailer (bunks too far apart).

    I put enough eye-screws in each bunk to pick up every hook from a ATV cargo net, stretched it accross the intake, and slipped a 2" thick square piece of packing/shipping foam under it. Held great, just yank the foam out before launching, left the net there.
