    2-3 hours, being careful.

    Should take less time once you have done it a couple of times and have all the tools at hand and know what to expect.

    Is that 5200 fast cure?? I thought that was too “much” for a pump, 4200 or Right Stuff was the choice to use?

    You made me double check!

    The tube of sealant shown in the photo is 3M 4200 Fast Cure.

    I do use Right Stuff gasket sealer around the intake grate bolt holes (just a thin bead) but around the rim of the jet pump sections I typically use 4200 Fast Cure.

    What size deep socket did you use to make the tool?

    Noted that it is a six point socket, good choice!

    All depends on how experienced the person is and whether you encounter any problems.
    And have all the necessary tools at hand.
    And you don’t forget about something or somehow put it back together incorrectly.

    Jet pumps that have been in use for a long time and especially salt water exposure can have stuck/corroded bolts which might need some effort and finesse to remove. Plus soaking time with penetrant liquid.

    That 2-3 hours time estimate is for someone doing it for the first time, on a Yamaha 155 or 160mm jet pump that is willing to come apart with perhaps medium difficulty.

    A fairly new jet pump is not going to have corrosion issues but the factory sealant can really hold it together. And sometimes the never-removed-before pump bolts can be rather tightly torqued in place.

    I use a longer handle 1/2” drove ratchet wrench to initially crack the bolts free, taking care to not over do it and break a bolt head off. Then switch to 3/8” drive to undo the bolts.

    Tip: Remove the small 8mm head bolt early on, before completely undoing all the bigger bolts. That way you cannot forget about the little bolt on the far left and try to force/pry the pump apart, bending the thin bolt.
    Don’t ask why I had to order a replacement small bolt from Yamaha.

    It does not take me that long, typically, to R&R a Yamaha jet pump. Unless it fights back or something breaks.

    Still may need a ‘cheater pipe’ to crack loose the impeller.

    If anything, welding a deep socket onto the drawbar seems more flexible for holding the spline tool, as the spline tool can then be re-used elsewhere

    To be honest with you I have tried this method and it has never worked for me. Maybe I'm not holding my mouth right...lol. The receiver hitch idea came from Tommy Jordan and Barry Lee. Works like a charm, get a properly sized piece and you can make a 4 size holding tool.
