    Re: Aquatrax f12x. Blown turbo. Water in oil

    I am pleased to announce that I have a brand new turbo and brand new exhaust manifold and the cherry on top is while I was out riding I pulled in the dock area to do an oil level check and I could hear a rattle sound under the seat so I loaded up and went home took off the valve cover started it up for a second and a sounds like I either have main bearings gone bad or blown piston rod I'm going to jump off a tall building now

    Bummer! You might have gotten enough debris in the engine that it caused the problem. Some guys say change oil 6 times, some say flush with diesel or engine flush, some even say take it completely apart to make sure it's clean, I think Brian suggests it not sure. After mine failed I ran it a few minutes, pumped it all out and then repeated that plus a new filter every time about 5 times. Then I ride it about 10 minutes or so, then drained half a quart and put in some flush and ran it on the hose 5-10 minutes and drained it, changed filter. I'll change it again, if it ever warms up here on NC before I ride this year. I also pulled the oil pan and cleaned all the gunk out of the bottom of the pan when engine was out, it was pretty bad. You have to run premium gas or that can mess up a piston or cause failures.

    15240079239981176996485.jpg here is the oil pan from my Honda aquatrax. It looks like bearing and metal shavings the engine still turns on but it rattles really bad. Is this worth saving or parted out has junk

    WOW, I'd say it needs rebuilt. Again I'd go with what Brian says.

    Thats going to be interesting what you find when you get into it. If you don't have crankshaft galling I'd be amazed. Sure is a mess.

    I'd hunt up another motor, you've already bought the most expensive parts. I saw an F12X in FLA on CL a guy is selling for $1500, claims it needs a fuel injector and I think he even has the new fuel injector with the ski, if it's not sold already? But there are a few more on there less than $2,000?

    Correction, it was in Virginia on CL and it was $2000, still there today. Might get it cheaper?

    Why don't you take just the engine to Eric at Gearhead Motorsports and have him tell you if it is worth a rebuild. He also has a lot of Honda parts. Eric is in Middleburg Florida on Thunder road.
