I see it's been a while since anyone has posted about this fuel pump issue. Is the HFP fuel pump selling on eBay still the best option for replacing the RX DI stock pump? Thank you very much.

Yes, it appears to still be the best. They now include both strainers, the can filter, and tank gasket for a bit more than half the original price (now $80). They also still have the lifetime warranty! The gasket should not really need replacing, and if you can blow easily through the can filter I wouldn't replace that either since it usually involves double oetiker clamps on each side.

Thank you sir. Good point about the filter clamps. I plan on purchasing those clamps and tool just because of how bad the filters looked. I'm surprised this ski ran at all!!

Has anyone tried this with leaving the "foot valve" (metal and rubber washer) out? Or is that supposed to be the checkvalve? Thanks.

Also, has anyone had the problem of the fuel filter that comes in that kit having too large barbs? It just rips the inside of the fuel line up. I'm guessing most people just don't bother with the filter.

Thanks for your reply DooWacka and advice, I really appreciate you taking the time!

As a follow up to yesterday, since I had everything apart, I ended up using part of a fuel hose and sliding it into the silver shaft. It is a very tight fit but seems to work. I installed everything and the Seadoo started. I did some pressure tests and things seem to be working!!!! :thumbsup: I attached a pic in case it might help others. :) I am planning to use the Seadoo in 2 weeks so I will let everyone know if it didn't work!

Thanks again for the advice!

@rkbuye, I know it's been a while but did this (the rubber hose in place of the sliding seal) end up working long term. Thanks, Dave.
