Book Excerpt: 1992-1995 Polaris Water Vehicles Repair Manual
The drive train consists of the coupling at the rear of the engine, the driveshaft and the jet pump assembly. This chapter describes procedures for servicing the driveshaft and jet pump assemblies. Service and torque specifications are listed in Tables 1-2 at the end of this chapter.
When working on the drive system, there are several precautions that should be followed to help safely disassemble, inspect and reassemble the components.
- When working on the drive system, it is necessary to work on the bottom of the craft. The bottom of the craft is sufficiently open on some trailers to remove the jet pump. If it is not, you can either mount the craft on a suitable stand (where you can work underneath it) or you can rotate the craft so the left side is down.
Whatever method you use, make sure the vehicle is secured properly.
Do not rotate the craft on its side unless all of the water has been drained from the engine and exhaust systems. Before turning the water vehicle on its side, remove the battery.
Refer to Chapter Seven for Battery Removal. In addition, make sure the fuel valve is turned OFF. After turning the craft upright, reinstall the battery (Chapter Seven) and bleed the oil pump (Chapter 8).
CAUTION: Do not rotate the craft so the right side is lower than the left. Even when most of the water drained, if the right side is lower than the left, any water remaining can drain from the exhaust through the exhaust ports and into the cylinders.
- Always replace a worn or damaged fastener with one of the same size, type and torque requirements. Make sure to identify each bolt before replacing it with another. Lubricate bolt threads with antiseize compound, unless otherwise specified, before torque is applied.
If a tightening torque is not listed in Table 2 (end of this chapter), refer to the torque and fastener information in Chapter One.
- Where special tools are recommended or mandatory, they are called out in the text. Factory tools can be purchased through a Polaris dealership. Some aftermarket companies offer a few of the more general types of special tools required to service the drive system.
