    Rear carb shaft seized

    Any help on freeing up a rear carb shaft? I have tried soking in oil and working, still no luck

    You need to pull it apart & clean it out,Seadoo does not sell replacement parts for the shafts.

    I can fix for like $60. LMK

    Try PB Blaster. You need a penetrant first, then lube with oil.

    Try carb cleaner. If the carbs sat for a while, the gas sticks the shafts just like it gunks up the internals. I had a set of frozen 951 carbs last week...sprayed some carb cleaner on the interior of the butterfly shafts and I had them free within a minute. I actually did this to a set of 787 carbs today. It won't hurt to follow it with some good Bombardier lube. Hope this helps.
