    Modder's Tool Chest

    I've got the "standard" set of tools for doing most projects around the house and in the garage, but I'm a n00b to modding my SeaDoos. Parts are starting to arrive, and already it seems there are some specialty tools and supplies required for some of the jobs. I'd like to use this thread as a way to build a list of specialty tools and general supplies needed for the majority of "common" mods. Basically, what should be in a modder's tool chest? As people suggest more stuff, I'll edit this initial post.

    Specialty Tools:
    • Impeller tool(s): Search online to verify the proper one(s) for your application. http://www.solas.com/newweb/pwcprodu..._accessory.asp
    • 1/4" & 3/8" torque wrenches for various jobs
    • 3/4" torque wrench for impeller replacement
    • Magnetic pick-up tool (you WILL eventually drop something inside the black hole... er, hull)
    • A set of reverse torx bit sockets (every bolt on the motor uses them). http://www.globalindustrial.com/p/to...o-e20-10-piece
    • A decent set of metric wrenches and sockets, especially 8mm (used often), 10 mm (used often), 12mm hex head (for the back of the prop shaft when changing props), 13mm socket (for thrust nozzle on pump), 17mm (for supercharger nuts and pump bolts)
    • A good set of metric Allen wrenches
    • Supercharger rebuild plate


    General Supplies:

    And some sort of pick up tool since I always manage to drop something into the hull that vanishes!

    set of 5 or 7 backwards torx bit sockets wrenches
    every bolt on the motor uses them
