swap my pump 03, got a question...
i am swapping in an aluminum pump into my 03 GTX SC,
took it all apart today. one question.
i am reusing my stock reduction nozzle and steering nozzle.
in the reduction nozzle there is a elbow fitting with a screen that fed the OPAS, what should i do with that?
i am also removing opas.
take the fitting out and plug hole with what???

my new aluminum pump has a plastic plug in it too, what goes there??
what went there? something for opas also??
i just leave that plastic plug in correct?
why did they move the opas water port...

that's a totally different plug...
the black plastic plug on the PUMP is not actually a plug... take it out and u'll understand. it has a stem on it with a strainer... that leads to the internal water pressure for the pump that feed the intercooler and exhaust..
the VENTURI should be plugged tho like RXP6 suggested... 1/2" NPT i believe is the right size? or is it 3/8" NPT ?

aha!! yes a different plug altogether. i think the newer opas system eliminated the water pressure diverter altogether??
so a newer reduction nozzle does not have the NPT port at all??
i am making my own oPAS regulator blockoff for the top of the pump tunnel out of some pvc

Lextoy - is that an 04 alum housing you're replacing with (part # 267000084)? Where did you find yours? I'm looking for one too!

its an 05 GTX SC pump i think, found it here a few months ago, jetskihaven was selling it , he might have more??
any o4 and up aluminum pump will do, just swap pumps, move your wear ring and impeller into the new housing. or get a 12/20 like i did

when i tighten the impeller on should i put on never sieze or what? i plan to test it and then get it tweeked to max rpm's.
i got a 2 degree wedge, i have siliconed it to the reduction nozzle, keeping the o rings inbetween for a good bailer tube seal. BUT now theres nothing to seal bailer tubes btw the wedge and the pump housing, i want to not put any silicon in this gap so the parts come apart easy.
what have you all done to seal in the wedges/ bailer tubes? just silicone thos junction also? there is big gaps where o rings could go in the bailer tube channels, should i get some o rings?
btw the pump and the hull is the rubber seal, and some rubber grommets for the bailer tubes, anything else i need to put in there, silicone? there was nothing before...
