    1996 Polaris slt 780 rebuild!

    Rebuilding the top end of my 1996 slt 780, but im a little confused on pulling the motor out of the hull. The manual says to take out the jet pump, but I dont want to start pulling out the drive shaft and have it not work during re-installation. Is there a proper procedure to take the jet pump off if ill be putting the motor back in?

    The jet pump alignment doesn't change when you remove and re-install it. It is the motor's alignment to the pump that may shift and needs to be checked.

    Oh ok thanks. It has a blown pto piston, like really blown. Im most likely going to have to do a full rebuild because since its only 1 piston im suspecting my seals have a leak

    Yeah if the cylinder is nuked thn the crank is probably gone as well.

    Once stuff starts coming apart the pieces go down in the crank and do horrible things.
