    I bought a couple vintage seadoos cheap last fall
    i did a refinish and restoration on them as you can see from the pic

    I had them out on labour day weekend to see how they worked both seem to run well. Good compression seem strong for a little 580 cc

    my question is what does everyone recommend for oil in these. The previous owner basically put whatever he had in them. Is it a good idea to switch to a synthetic oil (Castrol Outboard or something) or do I just stay with a regular outboard 2 stroke oil
    ive had the starters off them and cleaned them up, cleaned the carbs checked fuel and oil lines. Previous owner had replaced implellors and sealing rings. Anything else anyone would recommend I do before I take them out this season

    Those are darn near bulletproof if the fuel systems are kept up to par. You can run the Quicksilver PWC from walmart with no worries, and its inexpensive.

    That is good to know thanks. I have very little invested in them but look forward to having a bit of fun on them
