Is this the right packing for the powerslot? I need three, correct?

Also, where can I find the rubber hose that connects to the shaft packing gland?

Alright, thanks! So I just need one package of that packing? I'll see if I need anything else from skidim before I order...

Also, why didn't that hose show up when I looked for it in the shaft accessories category?

Thanks, Mike. I bought that newly finished prop from Kyle since ours was a little dinged up, and I sent the upholstery out to Jim Friant, and boy was it a pain taking it all apart... We're supposed to get more s**w and cold this week, so it's looking like we won't get to ski 'til July....

Here's some pics of what a couple seats looked like.
It was covered with some upholstery material, but poorly done. It was basically just to cover up what was underneath...





Just a few layers of tape.



Oh look, is that the original skin?! Don't mind the note I left for my old man.



What made it even worse is half of the tape was virtually glued to the skin after sitting in the sun for who knows how long. A very nice and gooey mess, I might say.

Still waiting on upholstery... I think I'll give him a call tomorrow. Had a busy weekend, including supercross for the first time since '08 here, as well as my first pet.
