    Look in the Yamaha Projects section under Rossnemo's CF XLT conversion.

    ok. my idea is to fill the sump with solvent cleaner then tilt the ski on the trailer using an engine hoist. looking in the top left corner of the photo there is a hose connection where i could attach an air line to blow the bits of clutch out. what do you think is it likely to work...

    I would not want solvent cleaner in my engine. I would also not trust that I got all the debrie out without having it apart and seeing it for myself.

    that was a concern of mine , if i would actually get all the bits out guess id have to count them all, the cleaner i use is actually a clutch cleaner it dissolves completely very quickly and leaves zero residue. we have used it for years to clean engines and never had a single problem. guess its got to be worth a try....

    I would think that trying to 'blow' them out would be a very bad idea. Chances are you are not going to be able to get all the pieces out if you cannot see them. Even in that photo, there is one that is way on the left hand side. Even if you managed to get a magnet in there, you could still have little shavings/chunks that could get recycled thru the motor and cause problems in the future.

    I guess the real question is if you really feel that it is worth the risk of a future blow up because you were too lazy to disassemble and clean the motor???

    No short cut on this one. Pan must be taken off and disassembled and cleaned. Too many screens and trap doors.
