    Re: ts77r hole in piston

    Doesn't sound like it's going to have a long life.

    Re: ts77r hole in piston

    If I was you, I would disconnect the drive shaft and run it. That "tinny rattle" sound could be in the pump. Hoping you have not pulled the engine yet.
    2, 1998 TS 770 L, restored and running great. (Except for the one with engine that SBT put the WRONG crankshaft bearing into and is now sitting as I collect repair parts)

    It already was. I was just about to remove the coupler. The sound of the impeller hitting the wear ring is much more scratchy and consistent. Motor is still In it, but not for much longer

    Re: ts77r hole in piston

    Further investigation reveals a thrown rod bearing. By catching a piston half way threw the compression stroke I used my hand to slightly rotate/shake the crank back and forth. I was able to mimic the slapping/knocking noise on one piston. to lazy/ just don't care anymore to pull the plugs and see which cylinder it is. Motor will be coming out next weekend and ski sold. Any one interested in the ski or engine pm me. Brand New pump, aftermarket impeller (can't remember the brand), newer starter, brand new nip sponsons, lots more I just can't remember. Ski is in the southern twincites. I have spent to much money to continue this project.
