    Default Multi-tasking??? 200 HP opti

    Tis the season to do boat work, HALLELUJAH (dont worry, I googled it)! And I am wanting to get my impeller rebuilt ASAP. My question is, can I run the motor with the hose with out the stator,bucket, etc? is there potential to damage that shaft bearing without the stator installed? All answers are appreciated.

    Tailcone stator should be installed to support the impeller shaft to run the powerhead. Potential damage may occur with the shaft bearing or pinion gears without the tailcone stator.

    Claude/John thanks for the replies. Thats what i was worried about. John i wish it was only for a day or two. My motive for the thread is that i have a leak somewhere in the doghouse when the motor runs. my hope was to pull the impeller get it rebuilt and have the 3 weeks time that greatland needs to find the water leak. now i will rearrange and find the leak first

    Will do T, I have a feeling it is the expansion chamber gasket again, plugged my heater last trip out and may have gotten a little warm. Hows your boat looking ? You getting ready? wheres the first run going to be? Good to see you around.
