Brand new 160 maxx mag pump, with a 160 skat impeller. The pump has been bored to fit the impeller, but when i tighten the impeller down ti doesnt want to spin freely. I have tried 1 and 2 shim washers with the same results, anyone else run into this?
im thinking the boring wasnt done correctly, its a tight fit all the way down, my skat 144 mag pump defiantly wasn't this tight
looking from the veins in, its seems to not be touchingJust to confirm, with prop off shaft spins nice and free?
If so and all turns on the way down just locks up at the end you might find the prop has been set back like 5mm and is still touching hub so needs a lot more spacers
ya, its doesnt really seem to spin to freely anywhere in the pumpBut is the prop hub touching the hub of the pump. You will not be bale to see this as it sits inside the prop hub.
If you back the prop off a few turns and it slows it to spin it just needs more spacers.
what was your solution. I have the prop fitted in the pump now, but it doesnt spin as freely as i would like, id assume it will loosen up some when it gets some use
