    Unhappy oops? Now need some advice.

    So the kids were all excited about riding and all of em climbed on the Genesis while I had it on the trailer and decided to well be kids .... I looked out the windows just in time to see my trailer and machine tip backwards.

    Kids were ok (trying to be positive) .

    My machine is a 1999 Genesis FFI, looks like my steering and reverse bucket are ok.

    Off what models can I use the exit nozzle? I'm trying to find a used one I guess as I don't have a ton of cash to spend on it especially after the wife saw the bill for the gas i put in it in the last little bit, not to mention some other minor repairs I had to do. So I'm having to dip into my beer fund to fix this whoopsie.

    I am not sure. Too lazy to cross check the part numbers, but you can.

    The main difference are how many bilge siphon fittings your nozzle has (zero, one, or two), and how the steering+reverse bucket attaches to the nozzle.

    Thanks again. I found out it would fit but doesn't have the bilge siphon I need. I guess I'll search around. Bone linked to an ebay ad but that seller doesn't ship outside of the US. .

    looks like I'm buying the whole assembly from John.

    once my payment goes thru and I receive the new parts looks like I'll possibly have a reverse bucket and steering nozzle for sale.

    He seems like an awesome guy to deal with.

    Ok so my payment is thru and my part is on it's way thanks to John Z.

    While I have the pump out and getting ready to change the drive coupler ( also waiting on that part to arrive -ebay ), I'm thinking of repairing some of the dings and scratches on the bottom of the hull. ( small nicks and whatnot )

    I will need to either flip this thing over or hang it from the hoist.
    The ring in the nose of the PWC is strong enough for me hang it to get access? if I rest some of the weight on the ground and the rest on the hoist?

    Is there a better way of getting access to the bottom of this 600lb beast?

    Be careful with that hull - it is heavy, but strong.

    I would drain the fuel tank and oil tank, then roll it onto one side. Support it well so it won't topple. Roll it with the exhaust manifold towards the ground, so any water still inside the exhaust cannot run into the engine.

    Don't allow the weight to rest on the handlebars.

    Some guys don't like the idea of the engine weight hanging on the mounts for an extended period of time.

    If you fully invert the hull completely, support the hull well so the hull is not stressed.

    Another option is to keep it right side up, and move it around to work on one section of the hull at a time. You would be working underneath of course, so make sure it cannot fall on you.
