  1. Well, it's happened again to my 96 XP 787!! two years after replacing the crank for hydro lock, it has hydro lock again??? i turned the crank by hand the other day so that I can grease the PTO fitting and now it is full of oil again and is hydro locking ....I cant imaging that the seal on a new crank have already deteriorated ??.........can turning the PTO/crank by hand be the cause of hydro lock ???
  2. I recently replace the MPEM in my stock 96 XP, she starts fine and run ok, except that I lost about 5 mph top speed since I installed the new MPEM and she max out about 6300 RPM. Question: does a mpem hold or set the RPM , is this something that need to be program into the mpem at the dealer with a MPEM programmer or
  3. I have a 96 XP that I have replace the crankshaft (the seals leaked) and I recently installed a shut off valve on the oil inlet hose to prevent the oil from leaking into the cylinder during the winter and when not in use, I'm just wondering if I should put another shut off valve on the oil return hose too?
  4. Does anybody know a good brand of marine engine paint that I can use on my 96 XP that would match my white 787 engine color (spray can), my engine rebuilt is almost complete and before I drop it back in the hull I would like to paint it the exact same white paint color as the stock engine, .....Bombardier doesn't sell it anymore and neither does their paint source Color-Rite make's the Seadoo paint anymore ......
  5. Does anybody know if the cylinder base gasket size matter on a stock rebuilt? I purchases a cylinder base gasket rebuilt kit last winter and didn't get a chance to installed it, i just started resuming work on it again (787 engine for my 96 XP), only to realized that the gasket size that came with the kit is a 6 hole gasket (.024in) and my old one was a 5 hole gasket (.020in)......I called around and apparently the 5 hole is no longer in production.

    Also, my friend has a brand new 4 (.016in) hole gasket that he's willing to give me for free for the same size engine....... any ideas which one out of the two gasket would be the best choice?.

Basic Information

About Seadoo XP 94
Original 1994 Seadoo XP owner, 22 yrs later and over 650 hours on it and the engine is still purring like a kitten, never rebuilt , all original. The only problem I ever had with this thing is the oil pump let go on me about 9 yrs ago and the solenoid about 3 yrs ago and had to replace the needle bearings for the pump twice. I've probably replace the battery about 8 times over the last 20yrs, aside from regular maintanence, this XP is bullitt proof!
