1997 Kawi 1100 STX Oil Pump
Quick question for a serious matter.
My husbands dad was working on his Jet Ski to resolve an over heating problem so my hubby and I could use it next week before he ships off to Iraq for another tour. Both of them had to help a friend whose house burned down last week so they are unavailable to help me.
My neighbor tried to help me this afternoon and removed the oil pump from the Kawi trying to help me solve the overheating problem, but he only removes parts and does not know how to put them back together.
I am an Arizona gal so know my way around tools and after evaluating the problem it looked simple until I noticed the pump would not align onto the stator cover plate so I could attach it.
It is dark now but I did notice there is a small 1" metal rod on the oil pump that turns and I am presuming it needs to be aligned into the gap in the flywheel?
To ensure I got this right, can I presume if the oil pump meets the stator cover and bolts down with no space between the cover and the shaft, that the rod did in fact slide into the Flywheel?
Come on guys, give the blonde babe a hand...Thank you.
