    Re: First attempted start of JS550

    The fuel pet*** inspection will have to wait until this weekend. I replaced the on/reserve switch during the build but didn't check to make sure it was working properly. I filled the fuel filter...

    Re: First attempted start of JS550

    Thanks for the tips. I have spent a good portion of the morning in the garage with no luck. I have a choke but no cable. Closed that and held the start for several seconds. Still nothing. Not even...

    Re: First attempted start of JS550

    Thanks for the tips. I got the timing light out and it's firing correctly. I even got it to sputter a little. I guess I shouldn't have thought too much into it from reading the previous post about...

    Re: WTB JS550 CDI or ebox

    Thanks for the replies. Do either of you know the condition of the coils? And how much do you want for it? This is the last piece (I hope) to get this ski on the water.

    Re: JS550 Pump binding up

    Thanks guys. Yes, I can feel a couple swollen spots. You can kind of see one at about 7:00 in photo 2. I will continue on my electrical work and then start looking for a new-to-me wear ring.

    Re: JS550 Rebuild stator wiring

    Thanks. I got it off the old coils and got all the old chipped, brittle wiring off without damaging the coil tabs. Now its a matter of reversing the process with new everything. I'm off to order some...

    Hello, all.
