    My New To Me Daytona 1000

    I just picked this Daytona 1000 up for free! She's a little rough around the edges and I have been told all it needs is a bendix. The previous owner started on the tear down and I think he go in over his head and decided to either scrap it or give it away. The owner told me I had gotten there just in the nick of time as he was brining the jetski to the dump the next day!!! There aren't many of these Daytona 1000's around anymore so i'm hoping to give it a new lease on life. In my opinion this body style from Tigershark was the best looking they ever made. It's a shame the ended watercraft production just when they started getting things right!

    I started disassembling of the carbs as they tell the story of the engine. It's obvious this ski has injected water at some point and has been sitting. It's too cold to look into the engine right now but the story of only needing a bendix doesn't seem to be holding up. I'm hoping the engine is OK otherwise the future doesn't look bright for this ski.

    I've seen much worse in carbs that were attached to engines still in great shape.

    I hope your right! It's rare that I have seen carbs this bad and the engine wasn't in similar shape.

    There is a online service manual listed for 97s in the top of the forum.

    Thanks got it! We got the motor pulled and it appears good. Engine turns by hand nice and easy with plugs out and I see no rust anywhere inside the engine. I did notice some scoring on the sides of the pistons but it appears minor as it barely catches on my finger nail. Since I couldn't jump the engine with the starter as it is bad along with the bendix, this bring me to my next question. Has anyone had any luck with the cheap starter bendix's sold on eBay?
