exaust water filter troubles
I went to check and clean the filter that is in the exhaust on my ski, I check the manual and had a 9/16 deep socket wrench. I take off the seat locate and remove the hose and am about to seat the socket when i notice it is chewed up and looked stripped, I try the socket and sure enough it does not work.
any tip to get the filter out even if it is stripped?
I sure am starting to hate the previous owner!

I thought all of those were square. Surprised to hear you tried a socket actually.
Brass is soft, just clamp the vice grips pretty hard onto it. Maybe get a replacement on the way?
NOTE: those should be everywhere, I doubt you'd even need to buy 1. I'm sure a GHer would send you 1 for the cost of shipping. ALSO: the 650 and 750 use a different size cooling orifice than the 780, so try to get 1 off a 650 or 750.

owners manual stated to use a 9/16 deep socket so thats what I got out in preparation. I will be getting a replacement for sure

so I tried 3 different types of vise grips and a no go
I hae a feeling there is debris in there since the stamp size screen in the pump is missing.
Not sure where to go from here
how hard is it to pull the exhaust?
anyone got a cheap exhaust avail so I can just pull this one?

try cutting a slot in it with a cutoff wheel and get a big screwdriver on it. Might get it out that way.....

Get a coarse file and file two flats on it and hit it with the vise grips again. If it's brass, you should be able to get it like that.

To pull the pipe,you have to remove the manifold also to get it out, Just don't forget to locate the pipe before tightening the manifold down,or you will be pulling it again...(don't ask me how I know that)
