Thread: Help again....

  1. #1

    Help again....

    Ok Parts will be in tomorrow, I got it apart tonight got the rear seal lowered and the intake grate off. This is on a 1999 xlt 1200 ltd. Does the Ride Plate must come off? Can I just install the ppk kit and be done? Looking at those pictures is the stock seal blown out enough to where it would cause the jet ski to not barely go at all? How does the blade look? Im sorry, I am just very paranoid of doing all this...I really want it to be working again without any issues...How do you make that 5200 look so good on the hull??

    Thanks

    Plate does not need to come out, Were the factory felt blew out in the back remove the rest of it and make sure you seal it well.

    for mine i pulled the pump and prop, lined the seams with blue painters tape.... put a nice seal inside afterwards..... make sure you use fast cure and let it sit at least a week, maybe 2 to be safe.... here is a good link

    Does the Ride Plate must come off?
    just to seal the pump, the plate can stay on.
    Can I just install the ppk kit and be done?
    yes, install it, make sure it is aligned, let it set
    Looking at those pictures is the stock seal blown out enough to where it would cause the jet ski to not barely go at all?
    the ski should still be able to run at decent speed, you will just be losing water through that area. it would cause cavitation on holeshot and possible lower top speed. seal that up when you install the ppk.
    How does the blade look?
    blade pictures arent great but looks good to me. no big nics, dings, or bends.
    Im sorry, I am just very paranoid of doing all this...I really want it to be working again without any issues...How do you make that 5200 look so good on the hull??

    not so sure what you mean by looking so good. you should only see the 5200 in empty space between the shoe and hull, wipe the excess off clean.
    Thanks

    that answer your questions?

    The pump plug kit neds to be fit to your shoe, they are always taller then the shoe and need to be ground or sanded to fit. I seal everything with 3m 4200 fast cure, it allows removal later if needed. I use acetone on a rag to clean and wipe the joints after bolting it in.
