    bendix removal

    I have a 1998 TS1000L and have to replace the bendix.

    Anyone know if this can be done by removing the front cover only instead of removing the entire engine?

    What is the process...does the bendix slide straight out with the flywheel still in place or what. Sure hate to remove the engine if I don't have to.

    Starter spins ok, bendix turns free but won't engage flywheel. Starter is currently out of the engine.

    Re: bendix removal

    sorry i can't help ya on that one. I have an 1100, but the way the engine is mounted to the boat is different that yours. You have a mounting plate and I don't. BUT if they are similar enough, then yes you can replace the bendix by only removing the magneto cover. And yes the bendix pretty much slides past the flywheel and straight out with maybe a little wiggle.

    nope, you don't need to pull the f-wheel off. I replaced mine once and then the next season I had to open it up again and clean off the gear. The bendix slides right past the flywheel.

    that would be so nice if the 640 was that way cause the fly wheel is a ***** to get out.

    This is what I found...the engine mounting plate rolls up in the front and does not allow access to several of the lower mag cover bolts at the bottom. So, the engine has to come out, or at least the engine bolts removed and the engine lifted high enough off of the plate to get to those lower bolts to remove the cover.

    PROBLEM...i can't get the drive shaft out of the PTO, iit's frozen in there pretty good...any suggestions on how the loosen it up without heat and distroying seals???????????

    Re: bendix removal

    You need to use 1/4" drive sockets with a swival at the end and a short extension to get the bottom two screw out. I have done this many times and it just takes a little extra time. It would take five times longer to pull the pump, carbs, exhaust and lift the engine enough to remove the engine plate.

    BTB..The driveshaft unscrews from the engine coupler.

    If you are close to Charlotte, NC you could bring it here. It is a two hour job if you have done it before.

    DANK

    Thanks for your input.

    I already took the engine out..last night. With the engine plate out I'm going to notch it out for the lower screws for next time. Engine removal is a royal PITA. As for the drive shaft, I see that it's screwed on...I was expecting to see a splined shaft like the SeaDoo. I wish the jet pump had wet bearing like the SeaDoo also.

    While your're there, here's a problem I do have. I have a dead spot in the throttle at about 35mph and adding more throttle does nothing until throttle is advanced to certain point then it has a burst of RPM & speed. From what I read it sounds like it may be the pop off pressures may be off.
    I plan of cleaning and rebuilding all three carbs while I have them off. Do you think a rebuild will solve the dead spot problem??????????????
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks RON

    Bump up the slow speed jets 10 points. This will help with the bottom end.
