95 XP Pump rebuild questions
I took the pump off because i wanted to change one of the driveshaft seals and found this! The wear ring is SHOT! So i figure, if i have to take the impeller off anyway i might as well do a rebuild on that too. My question is, the tubes at the top don't stick out like all the pictures i have seen. Is it because i didn't take the base off, and the tubes that stick out are on there?? Did someone do something it it before? They didn't tear off or anything... they just look like they press up against the pump base and seal. The whole thing definitely needs a good cleaning....
OOh yeah, and how about that driveshaft!! Should i try cleaning it up or should i just find a used one.

are you talking about the bailer outlet tubes? if so follow your hull bailers and see were they go to. someone might of relocated them.I would wire wheel the shaft, but why did you pull the shaft from the pto?

I think that hes talking about the water intake for the head. there are supposed to be two threaded pieces that stick through the hull. how was the water routing run before you pulled the pump? i assume that this is a salt water ski? replace the drive shaft, carbon ring and all seals, pump bearings and wear ring.

Pulled the shaft because the rubber boot that connects seals the shaft to the pto had a little pinhole in it. There was no water in it, but i wanted to change it to make sure none got in.
Placed an order with seadoo source this afternoon, so i have a pump rebuild kit, klots oil, a new wear ring and everything i should need coming in the mail shortly.
What is wierd is the tubes didn't have the be diconnected from the inside before i pulled the pump. They dead end. They bulg a little on the pump side, maybe it is like an oring that compresses? You can see it in the pictures.

oh,oh,oh...I keep thinking 96 but this is a 95...there are two o rings that go in the three holes.

Gotcha. I am thinking they are totally encrusted with salt. The whole ski needs alot of love.
I can pickup a driveshaft for about $50 bucks, i think that will be my best bet. I mean, if the rust has started to pit the shaft, then it will turn out like that guy who broke the shaft in half! With doing all the work with rebuilding the pump, etc i would just rather not do it twice!
Thanks for the comments!

yea that was Dean...good thinking tho. do it once not twice. when it comes to these old skis you either have to do it big or not do it at all cause your gonna be chasing problems nonstop

Definitely agree. There is salt everywhere on this thing!!
I wish i was closer you to man, that 95XP you are selling is super clean...

Just wanted to post a little followup. In case anyone needs to order these o-rings, they are part #293300040(replaces part #293300014).
