    Waveraider 701 engine prolem

    Hi
    I have a waveraider 701 which i cant start for the season.

    i can slightly turn the engine over about 10 degrees with plugs out by hand and it sounds like it is hitting on something and wont turn any further.

    Any ideas could it be the starter stuck engaged?

    Sometimes the jetpump is locked up , keeping the motor from spinning.

    I agree. This is what my problem was about 6 years ago. I was a saltwater boater living near the beach in north Florida. My OEM stainless steel wear ring got saltwater behind the SS liner and caused it to swell and contact the impeller.
