    Found the housing I had, it was also somewhat salty with peeling paint. I popped it in the blast cabinet and cleaned it up. It's off an '08 RXTX 255. It busted a supercharger gear and dinged it up a...

    The screen is covering the main water inlet inside the jet pump. You'll have to remove the steering and reduction nozzles off the pump to see it.

    That thing looks like a salty, never maintained, mess. I think I have a rear housing for an '08. I'd take $65 shipped for it. You'd have to swap all your guts over to it. You'll want to get a new...

    You can make a rod balancing fixture yourself, there are several videos online. You just need a small, accurate, digital scale. Those can be had off evilbay for around $20. How far off is it?

    Do a compression check too. It kind of sounds like the compression skips a cylinder while you're cranking on it.

    Usually, when a bearing 'spins' it ruins the rod. The rod gains some clearance and loses the ability to properly clamp onto the bearing.

    You can't buy the acc pump parts seperate, AND they don't come in the kit. Your carbs are Mikuni SBN 46i. I believe you'll find a Holley acc pump check valve to be the same part. Usually if one is...
