    Wear Ring Issue ?

    So I just finished up install my new Fizzle IC kit and headed out the lake to test out. Once I started the ski up I noticed it felt like I had no suction / and the RPM's shot up quickly and it felt like there was no load on the motor. Once I got back how I took the pump off to examine the wear right and the impeller is touching the side of the wear ring when I spin by had... Could this be my entire problem or could my carbon seal be shot ? I find this very odd because I just had the ski out last week and it ran fine? Now its stuggles to get to 5-6k and almost feels like its breaks up under boost ?

    Check your hoses from SC to IC / TB.

    Maybe one of them blow off or the clamp is loossen providing an airleak.

    When the hose pops off you can not rev past 5000 / 6000 rpm.

    Check that none of the hoses are pressing on the carbon ring bellows.
    Also your pump seal looks distorted in your pics. may need a new on or its just out of position.

    could a little pressure on the bellows really cause issues like this?

    EDIT: Also does the carbon seal just let go ? or does it go after time ? I find it odd this started right after the IC install ?

    Does this drive shaft look OK. I can still feel the splines I just don't have a new one to compare against.
