    Ride Plate

    Hey All. Going to be pulling ride plate. Going to try my own machining job on it to see what I can get out of it. Any tricks on pulling it out? I do have a service manual. How about the install. Anyone adding any extra sealant or just where indicated in manual?

    Thanks. Will post before and after pics of the machining. Fingers crossed!!!!! Might need a plate donation if I fail!

    Thanks!! One last one, going to grab a bottle jack today to get it off. Forgot to measure the space from the plate to the top of the pump tunel. Anyone know what it is so I can get the right size jack?

    Mines in the garage right next to the home office, 11 1/2" to 12" depending on where I measure.

    Be sure to be careful with the plastic fittings for the coolant in the plate that enters the hull.
    You can break them very easy when removing plate if not careful.

    Thanks for the tip! Can and should they be removed prior to prying plate off?

    yes, unscrew them from inside the hull, before u try to remove the plate. They are plastic screw on pieces with an o-ring that seals them to the plate.
