After years of great fun, I'm doing the carbon seal/carrier retro fit upgrade on my 97 Speedster. I've read a bunch of posts and am following "tiggerman's" sugestions (http://seadoosportbo...rofit-t161.html) on the carrier retro fit, but I'm looking for opinions on assembling the carrier assembly. I read on another site that if you install the single seal on the carrier assembly towards the engine and the double seal towards the pump that any/all excess grease pumped in will be expelled and you can see it in the engine compartment. If you install the single seal on the carrier assembly towards the pump (as recommended by SeaDoo), the excess grease will be expelled into the water towards the pump. There is little difference in price between an aftermarket replacement carrier and all SeaDoo parts, so it's a no brainer there, but question:
Is it personal preference as to which way you install the seals?, or is there an actual mechanical/performance reason for one or the other.
I find it preferable to have the grease expell into the engine compartment and having to ocassionally wipe it off than to pollute water with grease even though it is probably a small amount.
Any opinions? Anyone actually do this lately? Tiggerman you out there? (great write up THANKS!)
