    Default Correct way to file a jet impeller???

    I need to know this and am getting conflicting advise as to which side of the leading edge to file.
    Even Outboard Jets MFG. is vague at best.

    Default impeller sharpening

    What part of the drawing from Outboard Jets is confusing? Just remember that the drawing shows the orientation the impeller will sit in the jet unit. When you sharpen, typically, the impeller is out of the jet, upside down. In Fairbanks? I can help if you want...done it a hundred times.

    No, actually in Ketchikan.
    Here's the deal. My brother in law told me wrong (verbally instead of showing me) which side to file. (he's dislexic ya know).

    Now my stainless four blade is screwed up. I guess its a little tall for my Yamaha 60/2 anyway. luckily my aluminum 3 blade arrived.

    And yes, the Outboard jets diagram makes perfect sense........ NOW!

    I might call Impros to see if Dave can true and re-balance it. I should just try it, but it will probably just cavitate like a *******.
