    SLH jet pump long bolts

    Has anyone ever had trouble with the 4 long bolts holding the jet pump together? need to change the rear pump housing but the bolts are mega tight/corroded into where they thread into. Was thinking of heating them gently but not too sure on what the outcome will be.

    They have been known to snap if you ride in salt water.

    You can try some heat and see if that works. Good luck.

    soak them with pb blaster or some other penetrating oil. Let it sit for a day or 2 if necessary. Keep applying it and give it a chance to soak in

    lol tried to strip it before I read this! Used heat but one snapped so ended up just taking the pump out.
