    Re: 95 hx question

    Pictures of the engine compartment? I assume salt water usage. If you at least pull the carbs off, you should be able to look down the intake and see the rotary valve plate turning as you rotate...

    Re: 95 hx question

    I've never needed to use the "Ether Bunny" to start a ski....ever. If you need something combustible to try, use carb cleaner. Pretty much any carb cleaner will do. A 1-2 second blast down the...

    Re: Pump cone fill plug sealant??

    The 3 bolts should have a drop of blue loctite on the threads. On my pump fill plug(s) I use PTFE sealant. I run the plug down until its flush with the plastic and leave it.

  5. Re: 98 Sea Doo GTX Limited High RPMs out of the water, Low RPMs in the water

    You have a 951 Time Bomb. Any 951 over at 150+hrs needs to be considered to be running on borrowed time. The engine MIGHT be telling you that it's time to get a full upper engine rebuild done, if...
