    New project time again!

    Just picked up another Daytona 1000 finally tonight. Drove almost 4 hours to get it. Then 4 hours home. Cost was $375 no trailer. Seller claims it needs a driveshaft and coupler, starter, starter solenoid, stator, and a tune up. I called bs on that and bought it assuming it needs much more. Hull is pretty faded. I have big plans for this guy. Starting by partially parting it out. For another ski that will hopefully be coming soon. Stay tuned...

    Re: New project time again!

    Here it is, a mint 1998 TS1000R. Hasnt seen water since 98. Was rode, flipped, and the owners rolled it over the wrong way and got water in the engine. They pulled it out and let it sit locking everything up after first blowing it up from the water. I got it tonight for $360. Im going to donate anything needed from the Daytona and then fix the daytona over the winter. Im tired so i cant get into good detail tonight but will continue more tomorrow.IMAG0701.jpg

    Re: New project time again!

    I have the motor almost ready to come out of the daytona. The 1000R now that i have had a chance to wash it is in terrible shape. Its got scratches on literally every inch of the hull. They are very small and light scratches, almost likr someone used a sandy rag to wipe down the ski. Even the decals have scratches in them. I did do my first round of degreasing on the inside. I will have more pics soon bit for now, here it is after a bath, one quick round of oxidation/scratch remover, and a very quick round of wax. Cant see them in the picture but all the scratches are still there.

    Re: New project time again!

    Just dinked around with the daytona a little. Turned out to just be a stuck starter. Rebuilt that and got a good starter, now its turning over. Compression is good, pto side first its 140:135:135. Squirted a tiny bit of gas down the manifolds and it popped right off. In the process of yanking the motor to put into the 1000r but the bloody idiots that owned this before me tried to weld the driveshaft to the engine coupler. Obviously didn't work but now the driveshaft is stuck inside the coupler so I can't get the engine out. Frekin idiots...

    Re: New project time again!

    Can you unscrew the coupler from the engine?
    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)

    Re: New project time again!

    No, i have never been able to get one of these couplers off, i usually just cut them off. But i did get them separated. I used a dremal to cut the front of the coupler off and the shaft pulled right out. Got the motor out last night.

    Re: New project time again!

    I have finally finished degreasing the 1000r, I thought the ski was literally bleeding as it would not stop leaking oil out of the front right motor mount. Yes, I did mean to type motor mount. For what ever reason after i finished degreasing for the first time, a thin but very incessant stream of oil came from one of the bolt holes under the motor mount. I removed the mount and water/oil came spewing out, then started trickling enough to be frustrating. Took days for the oil to stop. I have no idea where it was coming from but it was very annoying. After that I went threw the hull take note of anything missing. Just missing some fuel line and a fuel pump. Thanks to the daytona i have a fuel pump, but no new line. Will have to get some soon. Also finished cutting off the old coupler. Its much easier out of the hull :b. Trying out a patch on the steering cable, the last owner bent the end on the out side of the hull so far that it popped apart where the outer end pivots inside the main blue tube. I pounded it back together and tried to re-crimp the socket around the pivot ball. Then i insalled a new rubber boot over the socket and it looks and feels like new. Hopefully it holds. Motor should be going in next!

    Re: New project time again!

    I had a long-term slow oil leak on my 98 770. Took forever to find that it was the hose clamp on the oil inlet to the pump. There clamp wasn't quite the right size to really bite down. Oil worked its way in between the liner and inside surface of the hull through the mastic expulsion holes in the liner.
