    Sea Doo exhaust pipe wrench [for 951] doesn't work

    Bought a Sea Doo exhaust pipe wrench [p/n 529-035-505] It is for the one exhaust pipe nut on the back of a 951 [silver] motor. However it will not go down on the nut due to lack of space between the stud and exhaust pipe. Is there a wrench that actually works? What are you guys using? I paid $32 for this Sea Doo wrench and it is useless!

    I used my Snap-On wrenches to remove one off my buddies 951 last year. It was a very tight fit, but it worked.

    I'd say either a replacement wrench or perhaps a little grinding may be needed. For $35..I'd go for a replacement first..then if the replacement has the same issue..grind as needed.

    I think I got mine from WSM. Its crap metal but it works. Those nuts usually arent super tight anyway. If its a DI the easiest way is to loosen the clamps on the throttle bodies and push them down out of the way, then use a short 15mm wrench. Oh and you have to get at it from the front. I dont know if thats what your doing or not

    The motor is in a stock 99 XPL. I have tried from the front and back but it is a no go either way. This one nut is a a real PITA but I will keep trying.

    take the carbs off. I've had one of those wrenches since 01, and I used it once. Its a lot easier to pull the 5 6mm allen bolts that hold the carbs on, and use an open end 15mm to remove that nut. You don't have to disconnect the carbs if your not removing them, just set them in the bottom of the boat.

    a 5" long 1/4 drive 6mm hex bit is worth its weight in gold when pulling carbs off a 951. You'll spend more time messing around with that wrench then you will pulling the carbs and putting them back on.

    Hey guys thanks for the info. I ended up grinding the wrench down on one small section, was able to get the clearance needed and the project is rolling again. Thanks for the input.
