    I believe he means Watcon. http://watcon.com

    I'm not sure if he has them for an MSX. I know he has a needle bearing replacement for all others. If nothing else, give him a call. He is very knowledgeable and might be able to point you to a source. I believe someone, HiPeRco I believe, posted the dimensions of the seals and bearings. So if nothing else you could source the components as individual items from a supplier such as McMaster-Carr.

    Look in the jet pump section, from this link

    The single bearing and the three seals should be available from any industrial bearing house or similar.

    You will need a press or similar tool to extract the old bearing and insert the replacement.

    When pressing the new seals in the orientation matters, and the correct orientation may be different from factory.

    Do not press the new inner seal in so deeply that it presses against the bearing face, there must be a small air gap.

    The factory small seals are 7mm th9ck. 8mm thick seals can be used but it is snug fit.

    I bought a brand new rebuild kit from Polaris a few months back. It was around $35 US IIRC. Can't beat OEM parts for quality!

    I believe the rebuild kit has now become NLA.

    Could you share the new PN? Each place I have checked for the 2858113 it comes back as NLA.

    2858113 is what I ordered. July 4th. Polaris Parts House. $31.97

    Perhaps I bought the last one. I've done that a couple times before with Polaris parts.
