    Nozzle draing tubes question

    Does anyone know how to remove the two drain tubes on the nozzle? I broke one and wanted to replace it.

    When I plugged mine up, I just drilled most of it out and then pulled the rest of it out.

    You dont have to do away with them. I was just tellining you that if you drill most of the plastic out they will pull out. You may just be able to pull them out. Then you can replace them. I have an automatic 1100 bilge so no need for those pesky lines in the way anymore.

    I broke both mine a while ago when my new pump cone decided to shoot out the back of the nozzle. I had to drill them out, just took it nice and easy working up the drill size. sorry cant remember the final size that it was but they ended up just spinning off on the drill bit when i pulled the drill out.

    When you put it back in they take a fair old whack with the hammer to get down into place. I just used a soft bit of wood and slowly got it seated right.

    If you gonna leave them out make sure you plug them up good cause I went for a test ride without them and ended up with a butt load of water in the bottom of the ski, I actually thought I had a busted seal or carbon ring or something, there was that much water.

    anyways they are an easy fix just got to hold the hand steady with the drill and you in bizness
