I have a Dominator 12 s and  the  new to the jet boat world. When running the jet out of the water and a water hose hooked up for cooling at times I get a very loud scream goes away but comes back at times.This  seems to come from the thrust bearing area hard to tell as it's so loud. When I run this Weimans boat never a noise but I seem to keep thinking I am going to have some major problems if I dont catch what's wrong. PS the bearing housing does not get hot. How can I check this bearing out ?

Oh boy here we go again , sounds like ur wear ring is smoked , pull the bowl off and look to see if u have any damage on the impeller. And u should never run a pump out of the water lol . Now I have started the shit storm with that comment .

Yup 2xs Tim at Place Diverter is a great guy”” he backs his work . I had him rebuild my pump 2 seasons ago and not a single issue. He even got me over night delivery from American Turbine for free just to get me back on the water faster

I’ve spoken to joe “ aka Flusher” and he has helped me out with knowledge and info numerous times which I can’t thank him enough . At the time of my pump rebuild B-1 was really busy with the race season in full swing along with other people ahead of me which was not a problem  I totally get it those race boats are big money . I called Tim at PD and he said bring it by and let him take a look at . Tim checked it out and said sure it doesn’t look too bad  so I backed my sled into his shop and 3 days later he was done . Both Joe and Tim are great guys I have met them both and are a wealth of knowledge and experience in the boating world . They both have great shops and deserve all the respect . They both keep the jet boat world moving wether it’s on this site or the FB site , I hear from them both just trying to help people . Both great guys . Just my .02    Thanks
