    weekend update

    just an update i got my pump cleaned up. i replaced all the seals and bearings in the stator housing and cleaned up the dings in the impeller. it is amazing what salt water can do to a ski. i bought it from a guy who ran it in salt water. But my big news is that i bought a 90 kawa 650 stand up over the weekend. i tried to post pictures but it wouldn't let me i will add them later. it has every aftermarket bolt on you can think of intake exhaust imp and ride plate head. i paid 350. i think i will paint it over the winter. i think it was a pretty good deal ! i love summer.

    Lance,
    Make sure the sacrificial anode is in place at the rear of the pump.
    Good deal on the Kawi!!

    the seals and bearings were pretty easy once i figured out how to get the bearings out. you have to drive them out from the back side. all you have to do is remove the stator housing which will have the impeller and drive shaft. pull the drive shaft out of the impeller there is an o ring that you have to pull past. with the shaft out remove the impeller and then the stator housing will pull off of the imp shaft. pry the seals out of one side there are 2 (note the way they face) they should both be the same direction. and then drive the bearings out from the back sides (run a punch through the housing where the shaft runs and place it on the bearing) there is also a spacer in there you have to slide out of the way as you are working the bearing out. my only warning would be not to start without the new parts. you will have to replace the bearings there is no way to drive them out without at least dinging them. and the seals will be bent when you pry them. just make sure you stay out of the stator housing when you are banging and prying.

    here is the $350.00 ski. it is a little rough in the upholstery but i bet zig can help me there. there is a knob next to the exhaust that i can't figure out. also there is a crank case filler? i guess i need to do some research. i just bought it and parked it in the snow for now.

    The knob is to drain the crank case if you get water in it.

    what about the black knob on the front of the case. it appears to be a filler port?

    If it's like Polaris, that will be the inspection hole to view the timing mark.

    /\/\/\ What he said.

    The pull knob is on the exh. head pipe is the case drain and should be blocked off. The other is for timing readings.
