    There is only one way. Remove it and reseal it with Sea Going Poxy Putty. It's not really that big of a job. Most all other ways are a patch that will have to be dealt with later and make an easy job a lot harder.

    Once leaking any attempt to seal is a bandaid re removing the intake cast Brute strength and Grunting helps , after you take the jet out and completley remove All the bolts , put a floor jack and a stub of 4x4 against the underside of the intake , raise the boat a couple inches of the trailer so the boat weight is on the intake and "ask" it to come out Thats about all i'll say cuase its like seeing sausage made , its not pretty I've heard of folks useing a rosebud torch to "warm the epoxy" to help succesfully release it (we dont do this) call if you need help Tom
    The tough part really is getting it back in properly :0

    Default jaccuzzi

    so heres the deal...
    if i pull this intake, i would really like to put the right intake back in...i have done the energizer kit on a jacuzzi YJ...i love my new pump(couple years old)...the intake is way too large for this pump...i know it is a very large job to size up my boat to fit the smaller intake...SOMEDAY i might do this...so with this in mind any repair that i do will have to be ground out along with some other major fiber glassing to insert the AT intake...

    has anyone sealed an intake with it still in the boat, with a year or two of success ???

    marine tex ???
    sea going epoxy ???
    fiber glass ???

    thanx for any and all advise...
