Quick Question, Re Sealent and Intake Grate
I know ive got to reseal my Intake grate edge back to the hull of the ski, should i throw some sealent on it before I take it on the sea at the weekend or would it be alright to leave it unsealed for this weekend
Reason i ask is because im guessing whilst doing the pump refurb during next week im guessing it may help to have the intake off incase the shaft comes out etc
What do u guys think?

No sealant required on the intake grate for test riding.
Do use a spot of medium thread locker to prevent the bolt from working loose.
Once you are sure the grate is staying in place, sealant is a good thing. Smooths out the water flow into the jet pump.

Sorry guys, but you DO need to seal the intake grate to the ride plate. You will get cavitation if you do not.
Cliffy, seal it. You will not need to remove it when you refurb your pump.
