    Default Stressed....Jetaway install

    So, I know it would have been easier with the pump out of the boat but.......

    About 4hrs. If you can,pull the pump out and do it on a work bench. I hate to drill and tap anything let alone doing it in the boat. If I was smart, I should have pulled the motor back out so I could at least sit in the bilge and tackle it head on. Nope. I did it leaning over the transome, standing on my head.... When I ordered it from Hitech, Duane told me to bolt it up with 4 bolts and use the Jetaway housing as a templet for the 4 new holes. You could do the same thing with just the gasket but, I think its more accurate this way. You have to take the front bearing cover off (8 bolts and a c clip) to take the mounting bolts out. Get a long punch that will fit in the bolt holes to mark your spots on the pump. Then take the Jetaway back off. Drilling is the scary part for me. The only advice I can give is to take your time.

    Worried.....So got my new drive line installed. Got about 5/8 gap from the end of the splicer to the c clip on the Jetaway spline. Is this too much?

    That's not a lot of engagement. , I believe you need to be about 1/8" from the snap ring.

    Any Suggestion? Is there such a thing as a thicker PTO? Or some kind of spacer? Don't really want to have to have the drive line lengthened for a 1/2"...
