    Tip For Jet Pump Installation

    It can be tough sometimes to get a jet pump off of a 'Ski, especially if it's been on for a while.

    Likewise, it can be difficult to put it back on. It seems like you don't have enough hands to hold the pump, twist the impeller to get the splines lined up, then get a bolt started to hold it all together. Here's a trick I just came up with:

    Get a couple of long bolts the same diameter and thread pitch as the bottom bolts that hold your pump on (this won't work if your pump uses studs and nuts, sorry). Cut the heads off of the bolts, smooth the burr off the end, then cut a slot in the end for a screwdriver.

    Screw the bolts into the holes in the 'Ski about 1/2", then you can slide the jet pump onto the bolts. They will hold the pump in place while you slide the pump forward and you can align the impeller splines with the driveshaft. Get a stick about 2 feet long to reach in from the back of the pump to turn the impeller until the splines fall into place. Put bolts in the top of the pump, use a screwdriver to remove the long screws and put the normal screws in.

    This actually makes it easier to remove the pump, too. Unscrew the bottom bolts, then screw in the long bolts. They will hold the pump up while you disconnect hoses, etc.
