    Lost Socket?

    I lost a small socket on a short extension while installing the Riva power filter.

    Can't seem to find that da** thing.
    Been poking a magnet and coat ahnger around under the block for 3 days now.

    Could it cause any problems -banging around under there??

    Really- quit laughing- could this be serious??

    Even rode it 3 times to shake it around!!
    Banged the whole ski up and down on trailer to shake to where I could see it. No Joy

    ????????

    nope... there's nothing it's gonna harm. just ride... u'll find it eventually way at the back of the hull near the drain plugs and OPAS assemblies.

    that or u'll find it when ur clutch blows up and u gotta pull the motor not to sound pessemistic or anything, haha

    I dropped a socket in my hull also, when I was installing the Power Filter, and couldn't find it. Took the ski out once got home with a bright flashlight, and it was sitting right behind where the drive shaft exits the ski.

    Thanks guys

    Will try the shop vac trick

    Was worried that it could get hung up on some moving parts or such.

    try an air blower off your air compressor.. attach a long 1/4 inch brake line to the end of it and blast down into the hull and crevises .. listen for the rattle...

    Did you throw the child back in or was it a catch and release deal to help burn my tax dollars?
