    VTS question

    What did any of you guys use to remove the large locking nut holding the VTS thru-hull fitting to the pump transom plate? It looks to be about 1 1/4" to me? This would also be step 9 on installing the rear exhaust kit on a 06' RXP. Thanks for any help.

    Get a piece of 1 1/4" pvc pipe and heat the end of it up with a propane torch. While its soft stick it on the nut and let it cool.

    You now have a cheap VTS nut removal tool

    Another cheap alternative is a set of plumbers faucet sockets. they sell a set of six for 11 dollars at Home Depot. One of the sockets fits perfectly. And the other sockets will lead you to buy new faucets...

    Be careful not to over tighten it I've broken the nut in the past.
