    Oops. I messed up. Now what?

    When pulling the motor from my RXT, I missed unclamping one of the coolant hose clamps. Consequently, the hose stayed clamped to the straight hull fitting which is threaded on to part 293710114. The threaded part ring broke and came up out of the ride plate. Now I'm debating what to do next. It appears that there's no way to replace part 293710114 without completely removing the ride plate. Should I simply re-insert the straight hull fitting and try to use some heavy duty sealant around it to keep the fitting from leaking coolant? Is there some trick to getting to this part? Or do I just need to suck it up, remove the ride plate, and replace the part properly?

    Do you want to take the risk of all the coolent spitting out under high pressure and cooking your motor??? I would'nt.

    Just not worth the risk, removing the ride plate isnt hard, just need a jack and some time. Worse bit of the job is cleaning the old sealent off, Maybe you could have your plate modified whilst its off???

    You need new inserts and you will have to split the plate.

    I could be wrong - but - The new inserts are threaded barb fittings and should screw right in with out a problem - I think that's the old style insert which used something different - check the parts diagrams - I know I repalced the old with the new and it workded well - best of luck - worse case - remove the plate - make sure you you remove the intake grate first - speaking of course from experience :'(

    I think you have it the wrong way round?
    The pre 06 skis have the male threaded barb, female fitting on the plate and the thread is what seals the fitting.
    06+ uses a female barb fitting with an O-ring seal. What you see in that pic is NOT the barb fitting, it's the insert that has pulled out of the plate.

    Can anyone else confirm this for me? Will I really need to split the plate in half? Is there another option? Seems like splitting the plate and resealing it would open me to the possibility of coolant leaks just as much as using sealant around the straight insert.
