    drive shaft help

    I want to change the carbon seal. Bought the tool to slide the support ring to get the c clip off. The whole drive shaft slides back but the support ring does not move on the shaft. The manual shows a different tool that spreads out between the engine and support ring. Any info would be helpful just need this so I can finish my stage one kit install.

    if you are a fresh water rider leave the pump in and stand at the rear of the ski, use both hands and pull the ring back, have someone else get the c-clip out with a small screw driver. If you can't pull it back use a dead blow hammer to break it free then use your hands.

    Thats how I did it.

    Do you ride salt water? If you do thats why the ring wont slide towards the engine, its corrosion stopping it. I used steel wool on the shaft and got it as smooth as possible then sprayed it down with wd40. It slid right forward after this.

    sometimes the tool doesnt work, Ive had to use my hands to slide that piece back. then your going to need a 2nd person to get the c cclip out with a flathead screwdriver or something. Same thing when its going back in.
