    Pump Shoe Removal Tool (works great)

    I started out to just rebuild my pumps which have over 200 hours on them. Once I got the pump off the P, I figured I would go ahead and install the new Speedfreaks rideplate that I've had for 5 or 6 months. Then I figured I might as well go ahead and fix my pump shoe alignment. The alignment was way off, 1/4" off center to the bottom. So I built myself a pumpshoe removal tool which worked great (took 2 minutes to pop the shoe off with no prep work). I removed the pumpshoe and found 5 shims, double shims both sides bottom, 1 shim top right. I got everything cleaned (which was the biggest part of the job) and started dry fitting the shoe. I know the lining shaft had to come up so I took 1 shim out bottom both sides and so on and so on. After moving the shims around and 5 dry fits, the pumpshoe lined up perfectly with no shims at all, what are the chances of that. Seadoo sure does a poor job of lining all this up.


    PUMPSHOE TOOL: I took the plate from my lining tool and sketched it out on a piece of 1/2" steel plate and laid out the 4 bolt holes and drilled. I used the hole in the center of the lining plate to center a piece of 3/4"x18" all rod and welded it to the plate. Then I took a 4x4 21" long and on one edge cut it at about a 12 degree angle because the transom does not sit square with the pumpshoe. Drilled a 13/16" hole in the center (which will also be at a 12 degree angle), bolted it all up and used a 1/2" elec. impact and it poped right off without any cutting of the sealant. Was able to reuse both pumpshoes.

    Great Idea and easy too (except for cutting the 1/2 inch steal). Someone with a water jet could knock out a few of these easy. You could always use a couple of nuts to attach the rod to the plate if you didn't have a welder.

    Sounds like you are cloning the alignment plate then adding a pull bar. Why not just double nut a piece of all thread thru the alignment plate?

    I was worried about bending or warping the lining plate and ruining the alignment tool. There was a lot of tension on the plate before it broke loose.
