    What degree? you need to know you might need longer pump bolts or use all thread also cut the watertube and install some heater hose and clamps along with all the trim steering and reverse cabble adjustments Z

    What ski is this for? Your sig says a 96 SL 780. I thought that had a long pump already? If so, there is a wedge already. If it's the short pump, then it fits between the venturi (exit nozzle) and the stator (pump). You will only need 2 longer bolts for the bottom. Threaded rod will work for the longer bolts like Z said.

    The rod should be 3/4" longer than the stock bolts. Take the stocker with you and match up the threads, the threaded rod will most likely come in 2'-3' lengths. Then use a acorn nut to cap the bolts off.

    Was yours a short pump? Hot Seat sells the bolts specifically for the wedges when used on a short. Threaded rod is much cheaper than buying bolts from HS.
