    Should FXHO impeller spin freely out of boat when still attached to the duct / cone?

    Hi GH community just trying to understand if my impeller duct is seized up and I need to replace it and those bearings up through the cone bit.

    I have my impeller and duct/cone out of the ski, but if i attempt to rotate the shaft my hand i can not.

    Is this normal, does it usually require engine force?

    Or does it not spinning freely out of the ski mean its seized?

    Thanks!!

    Pretty sure it should spin freely when out of the ski.... if itís not pump bearings are shot.... take the cone and have a look

    Thanks HDAV yeah its just like that. Hard to see if that guy is able to spin it but it seems like it should be able to spin the impeller and the cone by hand.

    I'll take off the cone piece and take some shots of the bearings!

    Cheers

    If it isn't butter smooth there is no need to take pics. The bearings are shot. Use only OEM bearings in the pump.
