    4-tec Drive Shaft Removal Tool

    Looking for the tool that compresses the carbon ring on the 4-tec like this:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Seadoo-Float...tUEixr&vxp=mtr

    If anyone has one laying around please send me a price.

    Thank you

    Tip: A $20 pickle fork with a stud welded to it works perfectly and the total cost is under $22.

    I stick a 10mm behind driveshaft and grab boot and pull. It's tight but doable, and your thumbs can pop the c clip off.

    Honestly you should be able to pull it back by hand. Sometimes when rusted I have used a 2X4 block (or wedge like in my pic) against the motor and pry bar.

    I have used this tool many times. It works awesome specially if you're doing this on a regular basics. If the drive shaft is a bit rusty, That's when this tool SHINES!!!
