    I am new to a forum posting. I have a 2003 Seadoo GTX Supercharged that has only about 40 hrs on it. It is blowing out oil into the hull at high RPM. It will loose 2-3 qts in a few minutes at top RPM. Lower RPM the oil will last longer. It is not burning oil but leaking it into the hold area of the hull.
    Any Ideas on what it could be?

    Thank u

    you need to pull back the carbon seal and top hat, the circlip is under the top hat. make sure pump is in place. It can be fairly difficult. you can place a 10mm socket in the spline area in the prop and that will push the driveshaft forward enough to pull the clip out

    removed the engine, not removing the pump or unscrewing the mounts. just removed the top bolt. Would i be okay placing it back on its spot and assuming it will line up back to its original place? any tricks?

    Engine-to-driveshaft alignment

    If you reinstall the engine using the same shimming that was originally on the motor mounts, is it very important to do a shaft alignment with the special alignment tool?

    KY Go WKU!!
    Need some help please..
    Bought a 10 rxt-x at auction low compression pulling motor. Got everything off like this thread says but I think the 10 driveshaft is different cant find a circlip. Moved the front bearing back and cant find it there the moved the carbon ring back didn't see one there.
    Pulled forward on engine and whole driveshaft comes forward instead of releasing.
    Is there a circlip to release a 10 driveshaft ? Or do you think my shaft is corroded into the coupler and not releasing?
    Thanks for help!

    Read this and down load pdf's

    Get a shop manual here:

    Get the 2011 Shop Manual because the 2010 is missing info and the 2011 is identical to the 2010 T-X.

    The 2010-11 drive shafts are bastard designs ( no c-clip) and need to be replaced with 2012-2015 shafts and components due to poor metallurgy and spline failures. Use the search function and you will find many many 2010-11 drive shaft failures.

    If you can't get the screw on floating ring off, simply cut the drive shaft in half as you do NOT want to use it anyway!

    What size and legth bolts are needed to mount engine to the stand?
