« on: September 23, 2020, 06:21:11 PM »
Hey guys just a couple questions, I bought this boat with the pump thatís in it took it out RE sealed the leaking intake painted it and put new bushings in it Ect . The pump functions like it should no vibrations anything like that , but I get minamal travel on the diverter in the back end am I using the wrong piece is there somthing Iím missing boat wonít shoot a rooster . Also was thinking about dumping some money in the pump this winter anyone have a set up they recommend? Iíve seen these pumps with extension housings on here all kinds of different things. The boat isnít a race boat just a weekend fun haver ! Any help is appriciated I feel like the pump is missing a peice to allow the diverter to travel .

Looks like all the parts are there.
Take a look at how the cable is adjusted, and get all the "up" you can get. You don't really need that much down travel.

As far as pump set up, depends on the hp you are running. Keeping the wear ring tolerances correct is usually an improvement.

"Didn't look bad" and measuring are two different things.
Radial (axial) .012"
Thrust (fore to aft) .010"
Condition of the leading edge of the impeller makes a difference. As well as the trailing edge, and vanes on the bowl.

I was amazed when M.P.D. detailed my impeller.

Dan sounds like Iíve got a lot of learning to do when I tore the pump down and went though it I polished the inside of the bowl made sure there wasnít play in the shaft knocked any burs off I could find and put it back together sounds like I didnít make a smart choice Iím not having problems yet but when it comes time for a split bowl and droop snoot along with a pump rebuild Iíll defiantly need help. As far as the cable goes you were right I was out of adjustment by about an 1Ē from what I thought was all the way up. So thatís an easy fix just going to get the cable .
