    Default Pulling jet boat motor

    I need to pull the motor out of my new to me 1975 Weirdt Stinger to replace a oil pan gasket. 460 Ford with Berkley Jet. It looks pretty straight forward to me but I have never pulled the motor on a jet boat.

    My question is how the motor connects to the jet. I see what looks like a main bearing cap with two bolts connecting the bell housing to the jet. Do I just pull the cap and un bolt the front mount and pull her out? Is the u joint a spline connection into the pump? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Sounds like you have A three point mount in your boat.the main cap looking thing it the clamp that hols the bell housing to the pump. Unbolt the two bolts, un bolt the front of the motor and pull her out. Yes the driveline is splined, and will slide right out.

    I do think your right about what I have. That's what it looks like, but that sounds way to easy, I'm thinkin there's got to be a trick here. Thanks for the help.

    If you do pull the u joint assembly apart, MARK IT FIRST... Use a center punch to leave reference marks as to how it was assembled/clocked..... You can change the u joints yourself if necessary, but it sounds as though it is just an oil leak that needs attention.... I've seen u joints last for decades, and I've seen newly installed u joints fail within one season..... Resort back to the old saying, "if it aint broke, don't try to fix it".....
