    Questions on replacing carbon ring

    I am repacing the carbon ring on my '96 GTX. The carbon ring diameter is 7/8" and the drive shaft is 1". Are these dimension correct? It seems like a lot of play between these two parts.

    Thanks,

    Glenn

    If those dimensions are correct then the drive shaft would not pass through the carbon ring.

    So you didnt like the answer on Sea-doo.net... As Glenn said its the way it is. Maybe you need to see one on a Ski to understand how it works. It needs the opening to allow the engine to move without unseating the face ring

    I swapped the measurements. The shaft is 7/8" and the carbon ring is 1". So, I guess this is the way it is made and when I put it all back together it will work.

    Glenn, there is supposed to be a metal C-clip that locates the SS ring on the driveshaft. They originally had a rubber oring on the shaft, but it would collapse and flood the hull. Hopefully someone has updated it on your ski? If not you need to order one.

    I did have the metal c clip although the parts list for the '96 shows a rubber ring. Also, the parts list shows a gasket, part # 17 (293250017) which I don't think I need. It is not shown on the '97 GTX parts list.

    Thanks for the info 96XSPSS.

    no you dont need that gasket but you do need the 2 orings inside the Ring seal carrier and the metal C clip 272000135 from the 02 xp list

    Glen, welcome.

    Have you pulled up on the pipe to ensure you don't have a broken motor mount?

    Do you have sufficient greese in the PTO to keep the shaft loaded?

    Also, preload the carbon ring: tighten the camp at the ring. Pull the boot forward while you tighten the rear clamp.
