    Seized my Nuts, HELP!!

    I hate when this chit happens, but whatcha gonna do?

    So I was parting out my rxt and in taking the motor out I needed to remove the pump and shaft......but, 2 of the nuts seized on the studs before they came all the way off and now 1 of the inserts is just skipping around in the pump shoe as I wrench it. Not cross-threaded, just seized.

    Engine is out because I removed front mount from hull with battery and moved it forward, but the pump has to be taken off. Solution most likely pump shoe replacement, and I am good with that I guess, but looking for a better solution from someone who has been there......What say u?

    Had a similar issue on a RXP. I had used the red locktite on the pump bolts as called for in the service manual, between repeated installs and removal of the pump the insert partially stripped out. I was able to correct it with a tap but eventually had to change the pump shoe anyway when the front lip broke off.
    No red locktite on the pump bolts for me !

    Looks like this is made different from rxp shoes, and I hear I can pull the nuts from inside and remove the whole stud, if not.....CRAP!

    Looking at the micro fiche I believe you are correct. Looks like the RXT just uses a threaded stud that is threaded through a smaller insert and can be removed from inside. I would bet it would go better than the fun I had previously with the RXP style insert.
