What’s the packing made out of? What should I have on hand?
This will be another task for winter. There’s only 96 hours on the original motor. I’ll for sure let you know what I find. Thanks again Dave![/QUOTE]
I disconnected the fill hose and sending unit wires. Put a mess of paper towels in the floor of the ski. Unbolted tank straps, an appsolute 'PITA'. Then took loose the hose going to the pump and removed with finger over hose connection on tank.
You probably will need to remove the exhaust From the rubber coupling on back to get room.
Tie the hose to the pump up so it doesn't drain everything out of the pump or plug the line.
The packing is a donut made of some kind of foam rubber. To seal the end of the filter and tank connection.
You may be surprised what you find. But then again it may not be to bad other the paraffin. Although my 02 gpr only had 30hrs on it a couple yrs back when I bought it. And it had a mess in it. My 01 had a hand full of sand in it. It was a beach ski so they weren't very careful filling it. But then again they never flushed either. Motor was a corroded mess in cooling jackets.
