    Grab the round end inside the hull with your hand and twist to unscrew it. Just took one out of a Hurricane hull a couple of days ago.

    If necessary use a rubber strap wrench. Clean all the grime and grease off first

    I will give it a try tonight. Is it threaded?

    The bushing part inside the hull is threaded into the 5432459 nut on the hull outside (which is actually inside the pump tunnel)

    There is also an o-ring in there to seal the water out.

    There is a possiblity that it is too tight to unscrew by hand. If so put a towl over it and some channel locks on it LIGHTLY, it will unscrew no problem.

    Arrow Polaris through-hull housings 5432458 5432298 5432459 5431985 5411174

    For future reference.

    Here are my notes regarding the Thru-hull housing as used on the Hurricane (1996-1997) and the through-hull housing found on 2000-2004 Virage, Genesis, Freedom, SLX, SLH.

    Hurricane 1996-1997
    5432458 Brown plastic thru-hull housing
    5432459 White Plastic U shaped "nut' fitted into pump tunnel above intake grate
    5411174 O-ring

    Virage, Genesis, Freedom, SLX, SLH 2000-2004
    5432298 Black plastic thru-hull housing
    5431985 Black Plastic U shaped "nut' fitted into pump tunnel above intake grate
    5411174 O-ring

    By my measurements the groove the o-ring fits into measures 1.66" inside diameter and .13" thick (approx).

    The plastic nut and plastic housings appear to be completely interchangeable between the Hurricane and non-Hurricane versions.

    The ID of the brown Hurricane housing 5432458 is .97" while the black Virage 5432298 version is 1 1/8" (approx).

    The Virage drive shaft measures 7/8 diameter (stock housing 5432298 clearance of 1/8" all around) so using the brown Hurricane bushing on the Virage/Genesis/SLX/SLH would require the driveshaft to be well centered in the hull opening (clearance of 1/16" all around). There looks to be enough material that the Hurricane housing could be bored out to provide more clearance, if necessary.

    Conversely, the black 5432298 housing should work without trouble in a Hurricane hull.

    Note: When I removed the black through-hull housing from my 2002 Virage TXi the plastic threads were coated in a grey sealant that extended up to the o-ring collar but the o-ring itself did not have sealant.

    Polaris service manual suggests using a special splined tool to tighten the housing into the nut but I suspect most would simply use a rubber strap wrench or similar to torque the housing tight.

    Be be sure to remove all the old sealant before installing the thru-hull housing. Also make sure the o-ring and the matching groove are clean and undamaged. Replace the o-ring if in doubt about condition.

    Photo taken prior to applying marine grade sealant to the threads and inner shoulder area of the through-hull housing. While the o-ring is supposed to provide the primary water seal, the sealant helps and also provides resistance to the housing slowly working loose from engine vibration and hull flex.

    Make sure the o-ring is properly positioned during final assembly.

    This is the slot that the U shaped 'nut' fits into, looking up from the intake grate area.
