    Default 2003 Sea Doo Islandia...Impeller Problem????????

    I recently bought a 2003 Sea Doo Islandia, Mercruiser V6 250hp. When I was buying the boat, it started up just fine and the engine sounded good. I put the boat in the water, put it in drive and gave it throttle, it was going like 5mph but the engine was at 5,000rpms. I initially thought it might be the basket, but it wasn't, the basket goes up and down just fine. Anyone have any ideas???

    First thing to check is the wear ring condition and the impeller blade clearance.
    Repost your findings here.
    Post a pic if possible.

    In addition to checking the wear ring and impeller, check to see if anything is in the intake grate.

    Where is the wear ring? Is it made of rubber?

    The wear ring is where the impeller sits. The snug fit/close tolerance is what give it the thrust. They are metal in the Merc powered boats.

    guys, is the cone missing?
    Does it look like the fins are jammed up with something solid?

    Let the experts chime in on this one..................

    Not sure about the rubber smell. I think everything is intact in the pump. Looks a little funny with the corrosion.

    All the barnicles that were in there may have contributed to failure of the wear ring.very quickly
    Why is it,that when you are driving and looking for an address,You turn down the volume on the radio?
