    2003 GTX SC Rebuild Help Please!?

    Great forum guys! I've searched the the forum for appropriate SC DIY articles and most of focus is on 2004-on fixes for ceramics & washer problems. Where do I get the best rebuild kit for my '03 I was lucky to get? And while I'm rebuilding the SC anything else I should focus on? Engine has 129 hrs on it. Thanks in advance for the help. This site rocks !!!

    The Service Manual has the specs for determining the slip moment of the clutch and the wear specs for the parts. If you need to rebuild it, Jerry has the rebuild kit in the store:

    You will need a few special tools as well. Or, you can buy the kit and have Jerry do the rebuild for $50. Checkout this link:

    danny have you seen the 08 kit, it will work for a full rebuild on the 03??
    it makes sense to use it if possible, only thing different is the gear, and you reuse your old one...
    comes with metal washers too
    hey DAWG, its alot easier to just pull your SC and send it to jerry , he does alot fo rebuilds, has the tools , fast turnaround and very good price.
    while you are workin on the ski, upgrade the exhaust system, that model sk has WAY too mnay exaust hoses and waterboxes/ resonators.
    i also own a 03 GTX SC
    my current list of mods is basic
    OPAS blockoffs
    pump wedge
    aluminum pump housing(03 is plastic and warps)
    solas 12/20
    aftermarket air intake, homemade or RIVA or R&D
    greenhulk waterbox and RUDE thru hull exhaust tip

    most of this stuff you can find used for good prices, real important one is the aluminum pump, and pump wedge. read up on them, this ski NEEDS a pump upgrade or than anything else, well except if your SC is blown

    ... many thanks guys - where is best source for metal pump? reconditioned, salvage, new?

    ... also, are all the SC units the same ('03-'06+)? thinking I'll look for a used one and ship to Jerry to work his magic - then swap out and rebuild the orig to have as a spare for next time ... am on long assignment in India right now and won't be back home until Memorial Day week - and will want to get back on water fast ...

    ... thanks to all again for the great help here

    what ever you decide to do, if you run with a s/c that uses washers (steel) you need to run the 3 little washers on the s/c mounting bolts to space the s/c out from the motor as the shaft with washers is longer than yours.
    The full rebuild kit has these washers in it.

    ... but the 03 already had steel washers - do I still need to do this!?
