    Is that a crack in the sleeve or what is it? Is the sleeve one solid piece? It kinda looks like it is where the sleeve comes together as if is was just bent into a circle. Is it supposed to be that way? Please explain as I will be getting into mine here in the very near future and am kinda wondering... thanx... "fishon"

    If it were me, I'd take it to Greatland or such and let them look at it.

    My gut reaction is it looks like a manufacturing defect. If thatís the case itís been that way since it was installed.

    Nope it not the original sleeve. It's two seasons old about 60 hours. A-1 impeller did the first SS sleeve and gray at Greatland will get to put a new sleeve in it. Spoke with them today and taken it out to them tomorrow.

    Every time I look at the boat it cost my a grand.

    That looks like it could be the beginning of a bad thing. I'd hate to see what that would do if it came look and bound up with the impeller. OUCH>

    If you are talking about the plastic bushings, Gary has bronze ones they can install in your reverse gate.

    We offer an after market reverse bucket bushing made out of acetal. Acetal bushings are installed in all our aftermarket reverse buckets with no problems with them coming loose or wearing out quickly.

    Mike, I special ordered and bought 6 bronze (oil infused) bushings from Alaska Bearing here in Anchorage as I went through 2 sets last year. Of course I love doing the stoppys and i'm sure that puts some stress on the bushings. Also, I have the Wooldridge after market bucket on mine.... "fishon"

    Claude,

    Those bushing you sent me last fall are quite abit bigger than the hole in the after market wooldridge bucket that I have on my pump and i'm not really comfortable hononing out the holes on the bucket. I found some bronze (oil infused) bushings here in Anchorage that fit perfectly. I do appreciate you sending them to me but I dont think they will work for me. I will send them back to you if needed. If not, maybe someone up here in the AK can use them. please let me know... thanx... "fishon"

    I mentioned Greatland because your boats going to be there anyway.

    I've got ExWeld's Acetal bushings in my reverse gate and they are holding up fine. Another plus is they are a direct replacement for the old plastic bushings. The bronze bushings require machining to fit. (I should add it's the standard Mercury reverse gate)

    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1334947486.485796.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1334947517.438643.jpgThat looks normal. I just received two rebuilt liners and impellers from riddle marine that look the same. Your tolerances look fat so a rebuild would be a good idea.

    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1334947663.989649.jpgI like the way riddle bolts in their liners so there is no way it can slip. $250 for the impeller rebuild and $285 for the liner. Impeller looks new and fits tighter than new...
