    What type of ski do you have.
    Anything on the engine will get hot while it's running.

    it is a 1994 Seadoo SPI 587 engine.
    it is the aluminum PTO driveshaft bearing retainer with the grease fitting on it that is getting hot,nowhere near the engine.

    how hot?
    You mean the PTO flywheel that the driveshaft slides into?

    Oh...That sucker. If anything it should only get warm after running it for a while. If it's hot the bearing is probably cooked. Try pumpiong some grease in first and see if it improves.

    The driveshaft may also be no good as it runs on the bearing.

    everything appeared to be in good condition,shaft,seals and bearing.
    I just installed a rebuilt engine the other day.so jet pump was off,as well as shaft,bearing etc.
    I will have to put it in the water and check it,as it may need water to cool this area.
