    Got a Polaris Virage TX 2001 jet pump where 2 of the 4 bolts are broken from the previous owner, is it possible to drill them out ?
    or do i have to buy a new one ?

    Not all Polaris jet-pumps have the bolts all the way thru the transom.
    The "new style" pumps have blind studs that hold the pump housing to the hull.
    You can see the new style & a parts breakdown here:http://www.weberpower.com/weber-jet-propulsion.html
    The Weber parts & tools are interchangeable with the Polaris 148mm "Domestic" pump assy.

    Best regards,
    Randy

    Great write up! Lots of great information on this site. I have a 1993 SL750 that has apparently had the jet pump assembly replaced once with a newer 148mm one by the previous owner. The stator bearings rusted out, self-destructed, and ate up the impeller and wear ring (ouch). There was probably a 1/8" gap (or more) between the impeller and chewed up wear ring. No wonder it was so sluggish and boggy!

    Anyway, I bought a pump base/stator assembly from a 1995 SLT750 that has minimal wear (.006" clearance from impeller to ring). I am in the process of replacing it (replacing bearings and seals as well), but was wondering how to go about replacing the pump base/wear ring, as that is not covered. Any caveats and tricks to make life easier? It doesn't seem like there's a lot of play in any one direction in the base-to-hull mounting holes, so is alignment a concern? Seems like alignment is more to do with shimming the motor mounts, and is vertical.

    Also, how do I remove the driveshaft from the engine - is that rubber - do I just pull hard? With the shaft in the machine and a large wrench on the coupler, I've been able to remove the impeller without the special tool.

    Thanks so much for any advice - this site is great when you own an oldie like mine - I've sure learned a lot about it!
