Thread: my 96 xp 951 swap.

my 96 xp 951 swap.
I started out by completly gutting the inside of a 96 sea doo xp.
I then steam cleaned the whole inside so i was starting fresh.
when going from a 800cc engine to a 951 engine, the rear mounts are the same, but the front mount is on the opposite side, so i had to fiberglass in a new mount (tube underneath is for water to run through so it doesnt get trapped up front). It was my first time ever fiberglassing, and i used way to much resin, nothing a razer didnt fix later on, its not visable so i didnt worry about it too too much.
Another thing different from the 800 to 951, is that the exhaust exits on the opposite side of the hull. so I then fiberglassed the hole shut on the right side, filled it, sanded it primed it and through some paint on it, cant even tell where the hole was and the inside looked alot better since i learned the first time about how much resin to use
The next thing i have to do is swap all the electronics over from the right to the left of the hull and then its pretty much drop in, center the engine, and reinstall. Just waiting for some parts to come in and i will be ready to rock

i HATE working in a hull that is all oil stained and just nasty. when i pull the engine out of my 97 spx to do the rotary valve seals, i will be gutting it and compleltly steam cleaning it, then just give everything a good cleaning while it is out of the machine.
I cant wait, once the engien gaskets come in this week, i will have the engien all together and ready to go in.

well here is my update.
i have done nothing as i am waiting for a list of parts to come in for the engine, once i get the engine back together, i can then mock fit it, then proceed with exhaust install, and electrical box installs. this is really killing me, since as soon as the parts come in i will be back at this getting it done... hopefully pics to come shortly, as i am impatently waiting my parts (been 3 weeks since dealer ordered and they have not come in)
