    Shaft hose replacement

    I keep reading about replacing the shaft hose with like a gates hose or something. I have everything apart and would like to replace it now. I remember people saying you can get it from just an auto parts store? Is it like the 1 inch hose they just sell by the foot or something?

    I just read something the other day were a member here has always used reenforced hose from home depot or Lowes. Boil then work into place.

    Well I called a local Napa thinking they surely would have the hose. They sell by the foot and it was gonna be like $13.00. Then called a Carquest and they sell by the inch so I went there. For $6.00 it was well worth the investment to just get the hose in there. My ski has 75 hours on it and there was slight touching that I saw when I pulled the hose off. Would that hose have been fine for awhile still? yes. But since everything was apart it was a cheap insurance measure to replace it now.
