    Stand Up Hull Problem

    I have a 1987 Kawasaki js650. I was pulling the cooling inlet hose, from the pump, off the fitting in the engine compartment, and the fitting broke off flush with the hull. I am all out of ideas on how to fix this. If anyone has ever dealt with this problem, or knows anything of it, please help. Any feedback is much appreciated.

    I have had to replace the same type of through-hull fitting on a '97 Kawi STX1100, I used a fitting like the R&D 1/2 X 1/2 THROUGH HULL BARB FITTING. You will need to drill the old one out and use epoxy or some other applicable sealer to install the new fitting. I believe they also have 3/8" fittings as well if that is the size you need
    Best of luck

    Awesome thank you for pointing me in the right direction. Should I drill through the hull with hole saw drill bits? Do you know how thick the hull is where I have to drill through so I can buy a long enough bit?

    For the 1/2' fitting, you need a 3/4' drill bit, I used a 3/4" masonry bit - not ideal but it's what I had and it worked. The bulkhead thickness for my ski was about 3/8", not sure on a 650. If you only need a 3/8" fitting, you'll have to get it and measure it for size. Best of luck!
