1996 Tigershark Montego goes 5mph then revs

I picked up a 96 tigershark 640. I cleaned the carb and got it running. Runs fine out and in the water. But in the water it will only go 3-5mph then it just revs like if you put a vehicle in neutral. What could my problem be? I am new to jet skis thanks.

I do have access to a Tigershark 770 for parts, if things are interchangeable.

Sounds like the impeller clearance is out of spec or the impeller and/or wear ring is damaged.
