77 Wesco Runner Bottom

Mon, 08/28/2017 - 07:50
Picked up a lost treasure in New Mexico for pennies. 77 Wesco 16' Runner Bottom. Question is does anyone have experience with a shorty? I have plenty of v drive experience but on 18'+ hulls. This thing looks gnarly intimidating. Worth restoring or too sketchy? Planning on using a mild build 496. Around 500hp and casale 18 gears.

Missing wear ring insulater?

Sun, 08/27/2017 - 21:01
Working on a new to me boat. Spent the last couple weeks getting the motor worked out. Finally got it fired up today thanks to the help of a buddy. Well we immediately heard some weird noises from the pump and pulled the inspection port. The wear ring was just flopping around like there's no insulator in there. I can easily reach in there and move it side to side and even spin it. Looks like a brand new stainless impeller along with place diverter on a Berkeley 12jg pump. How in the world would you even assemble it without the insulator? Or is it possible it disintegrated?

Plan on ordering new parts so I can hopefully water test it next weekend but not sure what I need to look for or order. I'm guessing I should pull the impellor and hope it's still in usable shape and probably measure it. Sounds like getting the nut off may takes some work.
