    03 xp di engine mount replacement?? NJ

    ok all you 2 smokers...
    i was wave jumpin the swells from HANNA this weekend off the jersey shore...
    you know the rest
    can anyone out there give me a step by step on gettin the engine mounts replaced. as much detail as you like...
    or at least tell me what major things i need to do, aka check and replace any bearings/shafts/couplers? or engine alignment?
    can this be done without pulling the engine? is that smart to do?
    or better to pull it and check the whole driveline?
    i got lots o questions, i am pretty mechanically inclined, got every tool known to man(except the special seadoo ones) is there a step by step in a repair manual i could use ?? anyone got it and can send me a copy??

    1. buy motor mounts. 2. loosen engine, raise up with hoist enough to replace broken mounts one at a time. 3. set engine down and kinda bolt in place.

    Align engine. you do not have to pull engine to remove drive line. do not loosen mid shaft bearing as it is probably ok and better to leave alone if it seems ok. pull pump, end drive shaft and mid shaft will come out top of bearing carrier/seat shock. Check engine alignment and shim as needed. while all is out, check coupler fingers, splines, dampeners and might as well replace the two plastic bushings on ends of mid shaft.

    check over engine for other loose stuff especially pipe. go out and break them again if ike comes your way.

    that is my method. good luck with the doo

    link to the manuals here, use the 2003 one, I didn't look but it should have some of the answers you need

    A far as the replacement, I wouldn't bother with lifting the whole engine, just replace the mounts one at a time, fully supporting the missing mount with a 2x4,etc. never let the engine just hang. Odds are your driveline is ok if you didn't right for a huge/long amount of time afterthe break. be sure to use some locktite red on all bolts into the hull and the engine mount itself, but remember to fully clean their threads before re installing.

    PS: usually under the mounts there are THIN SS shims, these are very important to place back in exact location as they are part of the driveline alingment, ans may slip under the engine upon removal of the mount.......

    if i keep the shims in all the original locations, do i still have to do an alignment??
    or is there fine tuning that only an alignment will do properly.
