    Its pretty stiff but it will go on. Use some glass cleaner generously and some ooomph it will go on. Hose length should be roughly between 5.5-6" in length. Not sure what type of hose you are using, but the Gates 1-1/2" hose is what most have been using. Can be found at autoparts stores. Cut to length

    measure the distance you need in the hull before you cut. Use the Glass cleaner first. Use alot of it, inside the hose and on the thru hull pieces

    i didnt have windex so i used some joy soap, and some muscle and it went out but not without a fight...put it on the half wall first then bent the hose and pushed it down till it poped under the bottom lip then just did a little twisting and prying with a flat head and all is well now..thanks for the help..nop i gotta move onto putting the drive back in..any ideal how much grease is needed in the cone?

    Are you using the EPNOC grease Yamaha uses? What blend is the grease IR provides? consistency?
    I personally use Royal Purple Synfilm 68. (fluid)

    For a fluid, I hold the pump up with the shaft hanging down and fill to the top or the bearing cavity bearings, then install the cone. Make sure the cone o-ring has some lubrication on it to help it go on.

    As for the grease, I have never used the grease, I prefer to use a fluid. I would make sure it is packed well with grease...very well. You don't want those bearings to start up dry in any way.

    ISLAND RACING
    MARINE SYNTHETIC LIQUID PUMP GREASE
    IR-MSLPG $11.95
    8oz

    We are often asked what the BEST grease to use in Yamaha pumps is. The answer is our MARINE SYNTHETIC LIQUID PUMP GREASE.Our grease is composed of MARINE rated lubricants and is blended specifically for use in Yamaha jet pumps. Regular grease is too thick and once "flung" off the bearings will lead to failure in short time. Our Marine Synthetic Liquid Pump Gease will actually flow to the bearings offering unequaled PERFORMANCE and PROTECTION. Recommended for ALL Yamaha jet pumps from stock to fully modified.
