Jet Pump sealing....
I pulled the pump to send the impeller off. I had removed it before and used yamabond to do the reinstall. I am in the process of trying to clean off all the old yamabond but finding it to be a pain in the butt. Wanted to see what anyone might recommend for removal of the old sealant/gasket material. I want to get it all off to make sure I get a good seal when I reinstall. Thanks for any help.

I use a "cupped" shape, soft wire brush that fits an electric drill. It comes with a 1/4 inch shank, works great. The soft wire is best, will not damage the aluminum, and eats sealant up like it was candy. Sears, w-mart, most automotive places should have them. I get mine from Sears, and they last forever. Get the small one, about 1-1/2 inch diameter for tight places.

Can you post pics after your shoe is installed? I'd like to compare the depth the shoe will sit compared to mine.
