I have that prop on my MS200. It works great, although the boat is slightly underpropped with it (on smooth water, you can hit the engine rev limiter). Still much better than the stock...

if you know the outer bearing number, you can match it up with the tables on page 4 and 5 of the PDF I posted (double-click on TBAxleMaint.pdf in post #3) and figure out both the seal number as well...

Well, either one could be bent and causing the problem.

Step back about 10' from the back of the boat when you look at it. If it doesn't appear bent, it probably isn't bent enough to cause your...

I'm not an expert, but it seems to me that the location of the bearing isn't particularly critical (unless it's been pushed over a locating "lip" in the strut housing and is getting squeezed against...

Stand directly behind the boat, take a picture of the rudder and the strut, and post it.
Odds are it's bent.

Yeah, I'd fix that. I don't know that I'd worry too much about a bent shaft - drive the boat around the lake, if there aren't significant vibrations you're probably good to go.

They self-destruct on their own schedule - sometimes in less than a year.

Change it every year and you're unlikely to ever have a problem. Put a spare one in the boat to guarantee that you never...

140 sounds fine to me. I normally tow in Az on 110 degree days - going to Powell this year, I checked at the bottom of a long downhill and got 160, and saw 140 after a long flat pull.

They can be used a number of times - but each time you use them, the retention force gets weaker. Because it's impossible to keep track of how many times one has been used, the general answer is...

If there was wax dripping, it got a bit hot, for sure.

If you can adjust it to 10 drips / second easily, I don't think there's any problem, especially if the box is warm and not hot.

Why do you feel the need to turn it off at speed? The motor should be making way more noise than the blower, and it certainly won't be draining the battery. Remember that a blower is only...

Ouch.
Do you have Fuel Injection? If so, it could be the wrong temp sensor sending bad data to the ECM. Seems to be the one thing you changed - maybe you forgot to reconnect it.

Other than that,...

Yup. We normally hit the lake, cruise to the swimming hole, and play around for 30-60 minutes before we start skiing and I leave the blower on that whole time. Anytime we're based on or around the...
