    Carbon Seal tool

    It's time for me to replace my carbon seal (along with the shaft) and need the tool, is there anybody in central Florida willing to let me borrow their tool for a few days? Cheers!

    You don't need the tool. It is easier and less complicated without it.

    Ordered the speed freaks bellows and will attempt to get it all done next week.

    I did the socket trick and bolted the pump assembly back on....the socket then pushes the driveshaft and then you can get right to the c-clip. Easy as pie.

    MSRXP took the time to talk to me on the phone and explain with great detail the socket method which I was not aware of. He also encouraged me to use the new speed freaks bellows and replace the wear ring while I was at it....so the bellows and wear ring are on order now. When it's all done I'll report. Thanks a million!

    NO worries Bro! Hope it all works out. Remember to wash the inside out with fresh water and spray some WD 40 or something similar to prevent the driveshaft corrosion again

    I hope he also mentioned that you don't want to fire your ski off (for the first time) on the trailer with a brand new wear ring installed! Unless you like the smell of burning plastic and purchasing wear rings.

    I did explain that to him. He stated that he had read that on other posts and was aware of said item. That is my measly attempt at a legal disclaimer... The original ring since 2005. Never been changed. Gonna see a world of difference. I would also sand the inside of the pump housing as well a tiny bit to get some of the corrosion off before you change the ring as the corrosion causing the ring to advance medially towards the prop and cause uneven or abnormal wear. I bet the pump also needs to be resealed after that amount of time. Dunno. He should be good to go for a good while once he gets these mods done. IMO!!
