    Thumbs up Styrofoam glue

    Hello,
    Whats the best adhesive to glue the styrofoam back in the hull? I have a 93 SL 750 and a 95 SL 750 that have the styrofoam in the bow loose. I removed the styrofoam and scaped off the old stuff and cleaned it so its ready to be reglued.

    Also, since I have only posted 4 posts I am not allowed to use the classifieds. Does anyone have a good throttle cable for a 1996 SLTX? I have emailed two well known used parts businesses, but apparently they don't have any since they have not responded back since they told me they were going to check if they had one.

    Thank you,
    Clayton G

    This is peak busy season for PWC parts suppliers. It can take some time for them to respond.

    Have you tried the sources on this list?

    You can always send another email. The more detailed info you provide, the easier it is for them to know if they have something that will fit.

    Part number is 7080620
    1996-2000 SL, SLT, SLH and SLTX - all appear to use the same throttle cable

    List

    Yes I have contacted most those on your list. Babbitts says call which means it is no longer avaiablefrom Polaris. Atlantic Jet doesn't carry it, 2001 up, 95 and earlier.
    Thanks for the reply

    CAN'T THINK WHY A SL OR SLT FROM EVEN THE EARLY YEARS WOULDN'T WORK. opps

    I would think Gorilla Glue should work,It's waterproof when dry and it does expand some when used per instructions which would help make contact with foam and wall. Also spray on Contact cement should work.
    PS> Where in the UP you from?
    PSS I'll post one for you.

    Thanks Keddano, I'm from Rapid River which is about 15 miles east of Escanaba. The early throttle cables that I have all have a straight end that slides into the carb fitting with a set screw. The SLTX needs a cable with a round T that slides in a hole on the carb and the cable slips through a slot, that way the T pivots in the hole. At least thats the best I can describe it. I'm certainly not knowledgable about these jet skis. I believe this is all original. Thanks for the heads up on the gorilla glue. I have a quart of that at home here already.

    I ran a test on the gorilla glue last night to see if the chemicals would react and melt the foam. My findings are.... It's all good!

    Thank You Dr.Watson,Nice to really know.It was a guess,Didn't think it would burn the foam.I've never tried it,but have worked with it and it is great stuff. Also the price isn't all that bad. Just make sure if you use it to follow the instructions,you have to wet the surfaces first that your gluing to activate it.
