    Compression Questions

    Hey guys just picked up my first ski. It's running a little lean, and a little hot. Getting a sputter of water and some steam out of the pisser. Just picked up a cheapish compression gauge (50CAD). My rear piston readying 150psi, and the front reading only 125. I did the test with a cold engine, and with the other plug out. The ski starts fine, just doesn't like to idle once hot. The spark plugs seemed to have a little moisture on them. Any suggestions? any help is greatly appreciated it!

    pull the head and have a look. get a new head gasket and just use the new oem gasket if the cylinder walls look ok. any major scoring above the exhaust ports will show compression loss
