    Thru hull/OPAS install

    I just ordered the thru hull and performance OPAS block-offs. That will be the last of my mods for the off season. Other mods are in my sig. Two questions...I should not have any fuel problems correct? Second, I don't want to pull my pump again. Can you install the exhaust and OPAS block off without pulling the pump?

    Thanks

    Thanks.

    Last question...in the Riva directions for both the exhaust tip and OPAS block-offs it tells you to use thread sealant. is that Loctitie or just put some silicone on the screw or am I totally off?

    The most important is the silicone you put between tip and hull. Same with block offs.
    Loctite will be ok on screws.

    Okay...parts will be delivered tomorrow. Have texhaust and OPAS removed. Anyone have any tips for getting the old silicone off the hull? That stuff ain't no joke. It won't peel off. Just comes off in tiny pieces. And Seadoo is pretty generous on the silicone.
