  1. Hello
    I would not remove the manifold unless you have to. I would just pull the carb off themselves. once the carbs are off, I would do the following

    New fuel filter
    New Sprk Plugs
    Replaced Gray fuel Lines (If you stil have them)
    Clean Fuel Selector Valve
    Carb Rebuild Kits (If diaphram and gaskets are bad)
    Clean or Replace Internal Carb Filters.

    What year is the ski and I will let you know what the High & low speed settings should be.

    Bought this GT in 4/09 owner and son said they rebuilt it? looks to have new top/head gaskets but starter was bad, replaced starter. Got the GT running, took it out and she started relatively ok idles ok then go to take off barely a wake wide open!!
    Oh also my friend said the GT was spewing some white smoke along with the twocycle blueish?

    I've read about these carbs inlet screen being plugged, and "easily"(relative to your ability I'm sure) cleaned. So I've got the spark arrestor and screen assembly off can see both carbs.
    So removing these two carbs (I assume there stock - Mikuni?) seems impossible or interesting at best, any input.

    Which is the easier, remove the intake (oil pump) manifold right below with the carbs attached or try to get to the four carb nuts off?
    either way I'm a beginner so it's knuckle buster time.

    thanks for any usable advice
