Riva SC Impeller
Riva is finally shipping my impeller today, does anybody have any tips to share that will make the job easier? What about the impeller shaft holder tool?

You better have them ship you out an impeller shaft holding tool as well as a service mounting plate. Total cost for the tools is about $45.

Here's a recommended list of parts:
SC impeller shaft holding tool
SC service mounting plate
1/4 wrench (preferably ratchet for SC top bolt. I found one at home depot in a mini socket set. This makes taking the SC on and off a lot faster)
E8 socket with 3-4 inch extension for other mouting bolts and SC housing
Blue loctite for bolts and SC nut cap
Ultra Black to reseal the SC housing

You can get by without the service mounting plate, but it's going to be a pain in the ass!
You have to have the shaft holder too, or make your own wrench out of some sheet metal if you are crafty. It's just a spanner type wrench that you use to hold the flat nut on the clutch side.
I'd keep calling Riva until they answer. Also, PPG my have the tools in stock?

Well Indy McGyver you can make a backup tool out of a 1 inch wrench if you have one you can sacrifice it will have to be ground down to fit in the space. Just make sure you don't try holding the backup on the nut that holds the clutch.

You can do it without the tool if you have a vise. My problem was getting at that POS screw next to the exhaust (Seadoo manual says it takes a special tool). I replaced that torx with a hex bolt after I got it out.
