    Steering Nozzle

    Is there suppose to be much play in he steer nozzle? The 2 bolts with nylon shoulder bushings seem to move more than what I would expect. The nylon bushings seem to fit snug with the the steel bushing, but the bolt has slop within the steel bushing.

    they were tight at one time, but wear out some over time..... i have owned many skis and i am pretty sure several models use similar nylon bushing that would work

    The bolts shouldn't move at all. The nylon bushing should wear and create any slop you may have. Hope this helps.

    The steel bushing inside the nylon bushing has the most slop in it. I would think that the bolt would fit snug within the steel bushing. Maybe should just replace the steel ones.Is it normal for the nozzle to have up and down movement when bolted together? Hope I'm not confusing everyone.

    Some slop is normal. Your nylon and steel bushings may be worn. Shoulkdn't be alot to replace them and get you back to normal.

    the play is to allow the steering nozzle to center itself to the flow of water exiting the pump nozzle.the steel spacers allow the bolts to tighten and the nylon something to move on.

    Mine was missing the nylon, and the bolt was in bad shape. Picked up both of the above and amazingly found the correct stainless bolts at Lowe's. Nice and tight now...
