    Default '97 Sea Doo GTX - Tuned pipe alignment

    I just replaced the 787 engine and when putting exhaust system back on, i cannot get the tuned pipe to connect (with the large steel o-ring clamp) to the othe pipe that runs along the lower side of engine to the water box.

    I put the clamp on hoping to pull the pies tight but there is an 1/8 inch gap around half the connection.

    Any ideas?

    Default Alignment....

    You'll need to loosen the bolts at the top of the exhaust, connect the "O" clamp, then tighten the allen head bolts back down.
    I wonder why your off so bad though. I pulled mine this past summer to make repairs to it and it fitted practically back flush. Maybe had 1/16" to pull together.

    You didn't loosen anything else but the "O" clamp? Do the above to get your fit because if I remember right, the other end is secured at the motor mounts. So, if you loosen the 4 allen head bolts at the top, you'll be able to get your fit, then pull it down with the other 4 bolts....

    Ever wonder what the inside of your 787cc engine looks like. Want to identify the parts, check out my thread on the 787. I'm sure there is something for everyone who want to learn about the internal parts.
