    need help with my old school sea doo 580

    Hello all. new to the forum and love it. I currently have a sea doo 92 sea doo 580 with twin carb,tuned pipe, ride plate and intake grate. Ive had a fair number of issues with this ski but its just about done or so i thought.

    the driveshaft seal that connects the motor to the jet pump is letting a good amount of water in. Im guessing it got damaged cause i had to turn the motor up to put a new starter on and did not disconect the driveshaft. I have not been able to find very much info about replacing this seal or where to even buy it. Any help here guys? here is the ski in question.

    so there is no fiberglass work involved? that was my biggest worry was that i had to cut the old seal out and re fiberglass a new one in. when you say carbon seal do u mean the wear seal around the impeller or the driveshaft seal. i dont see carbon seal on the bill of materials.

    Does a 92 have a carbon ring? I thought those came out around 96.
