could it be a wear ring problem?
i was test driving my day cruiser today, ran it for about 10 minutes, when i turned around and headed back it lost 1000 rpms and bogged, i let out of it and it stalled, when i hit the key it was locked up, but had good oil pressure and temperature, forward to getting home
i pulled the plugs to check for water, it was dry, checked the oil, no water and is full, but it would turn over but still has drag, pulled the bowl and still the same results, ten i started thinking about the wear ring, i tookit apart and noticed that the rubber between the wear ring and pump housing was rubbing the impeller(see pic), but could this cause it to bog and lock solid, tomorrow im going to see if it will crank as is, it has no marks on the impeller or wear ring, only where the rubber is hanging out a little. i have a hard time believing it is the motor.
can this be my problem?m if not what can be?
