    Question on removing SC

    Im in the process of removing the SC for the metal washers and clutch rebuild and im wondering how many bolts are holding the SC together? and another question is when i move the water box back im guessing i need to pull the j-pipe off of it but it seems to be stuck and don't want to break the j-pipe. any tips on getting this off?

    There are three bolts holding the SC to the engine. One comes in from the front port side of the ski and is the easiest to see. The other two are from the back and to the starboard side. One on top and one on the bottom and are next to impossible to see but easy enough to remove once you find them. On my GTX I did not remove the J-pipe. I took the clamp off of the exhaust manifold and just moved it back with the water box. The hardest part of the job was getting the rubber strap on and off of the water box. The RIVA instructions also said the nut on the SC clutch was left hand threads and they are not.

    It will take sometime...but it is easy...you could only get about a 1/4 turn on the bolt before you have to reposition the wrench

    A 8mm wrench will work thats what i used. The nut that is left handed thread is the one that holds the SC impeller on, they are easy to get mixed up. If your just changing the washers you done deal with any left handed nuts.

    The 8mm wrench is for the 06. For 04-05, use a 1/4 inch box end wrench or preferably a 1/4 inch ratcheting wrench.
