    Well, both would work, but I'm assuming the crowbar thing might be the "latest and greatest" sea-doo has come up with. I just bought the 2nd one, the screw-type one, off Ebay yesterday. That's what's in my '07 manual, it's cheaper, and seems like it would be better to have both hands free when trying to get the c-clip in place.

    I like the larger one so you can put some leverage into it to break loose the corroded ones! We have bent up the small screw type ones in the past.

    Guys! You are over thinking this.... You do not need to waste your money on the tool. Simply remove the pump, place a 10-12mm socket in the nose of the prop and re-install the pump. Tighten it slowly and it will push the drive shaft forward enough to tap the floating ring back to remove the c clip.

    Really simple...... To re-install the floating ring, do the same when you are putting it back in.

    Just go enough to do what you need to do. You can shove the drive shaft too far. You don't want to compress the bushing too much. You will be able to see it when you do it. I usually only use two bolts (the top right and bottom left or vice-versa). Make sense?

    Use the socket method. If they are corroded, use a leaded hammer or rubber mallet and knock the piss out of the floating ring. Eventually, it will pop back enough to remove the c clip. I have done this on several boats with SEVERE corrosion. It will work amazingly and it frees up your hands to work or hold onto other things while doing the removal instead of holding the tool and trying to do the work. Much less trying to explain to someone that is helping you on how to use the tool or what not. Think simple fellas! The simplest explanation is often the best one.....
