    '96 Kawasaki ZXI 900 Waterpump Removal Questions

    Hi Everyone,
    I have two '96 ZXI 900's. One of which took on some water in a fairly short amount of time the last time I had it anchored offshore. I believe it's coming in around the impeller seal. I've never pulled a water pump/impeller before. The manual says I need an impeller wrench, impeller holder, oil & bearing remover and a bearing and driver set.
    After looking online some of these tools are really expensive to purchase. Can this work be performed any other way? Any advise will be appreciated as to what I need to replace, inspect or otherwise.

    You can pull the jet pump as a complete assembly with basic hand tools. Those special tools are only needed if disassembling and rebuilding the jet pump. Find out where the water leak is before tearing into anything. Nothing on the jet unit can cause a water leak into the hull. Now the driveshaft support bearing/seal can. Its the squared black piece that the driveshaft runs through right behind the engine. Look closely for dry rot cracks. If it needs replaced you will need to pull the engine, not a big deal really.
