  3. 1100 63m in an XLT1200 hull - what's needed?

    I have an XLT1200 hull in fantastic condition just no motor. I also have a complete waveraider with a 63m. It is more than a drop and shim to get the xl running with the 1100?

    Re: 650 jetting, what jet to use?

    It's not that I need to slow it down, it's that it seems like it's starving for fuel under high rpm load. I've unscrewed the needles but it only helped a little.

    Sounds like you've got two unrelated issues - fuel and electrical. I'm in Pensacola. If you don't get it going by Sunday I wouldn't mind stopping by to try to diagnose.

  25. Re: Is it possible to have too much compression so the engine wonít turn over?

    If it doesn't work, try to turn the engine by hand. If it's too hard, something mechanical is wrong. If you just rebuilt it and haven't run it yet, try getting a little oil on the cylinder walls....
  26. Re: Is it possible to have too much compression so the engine wonít turn over?

    If you have a set of jumper cables and clear space to drive, you could jump it from your auto.
  27. Re: Is it possible to have too much compression so the engine wonít turn over?

    I'm sure it supplies enough amperage. The waveform the AC charger creates isn't a true sine wave and probably needs a battery to act as a buffer.
  28. Re: Is it possible to have too much compression so the engine wonít turn over?

    Your jumper cables are most probably too long. Assuming you're using a big car battery, get the battery as close as you can to the ski wires. If possible, attach the positive wire to the battery...

    Re: Two questions

    Warm tires = warm air inside tires = expanded air inside tires = higher psi. Perhaps a change in the road surface occured when the noise started.
  30. Re: Is it possible to have too much compression so the engine wonít turn over?

    Maybe your starter sucks or your electric connections are crap.

    Yeah that'll increase boost, but it's for a engine that isn't running methanol. Lets start from the beginning. To make the power you're looking for, you need to increase compression. There's two...
  40. Re: WATER/METHANOL INJECTION, Will i be the first ????

    65hp more than stock sounds totally reasonable, but advanced timing alone isn't going to get you there. Up the boost and you'll see it. Maybe leave the timing alone or even retard it for even more...
