    Underneath the nikasil is aluminum. You would know if you got through it. But there's a good amount on there, some can be removed and it's still ok.

    You need to measure the bores. You can open up nikasil with a hone and make the bore bigger. If someone opened up those bores for wiseco pistons and you put cast pistons in there, you might have a...

    Another place of low hanging fruit to improve is the pump. The space between the impeller and the wear ring should be measured (it's in the service manual) and fixed. You can also match the parts of...

    For matching the ports you need a carbide tip and an air tool. And you just need to take your time and be careful. I take the cylinder and manifold off so I can get a better look. Some people like to...

    I don't think you need to split the cases. Check the insides of the wrist pins, these rods like to pit sometimes.

    I always run Wiseco 785 pistons, but they are forged so you HAVE to be careful...

    Odds are there was ethanol fuel in there before and it all turned to gum. Running like that is just going to keep shoving gum into the filters, some will get through.

    These carbs more or less use suction to pull fuel into the carbs. If the fuel water separator is not filling up, there's either an air leak somewhere or you're not pulling fuel because the carbs...

    I had the same thing happen to mine. But I didn't notice it until the epoxy broke apart and clogged my carbs.

    mcmaster carr is your friend. If you want cool stuff on a Pro 785 you have to make it yourself now a days. I need new beach house sponson mounts and I can't find them, so I'm just going to make them....

    I've thought about it. I 100% have the programming skills to make it happen. I just have no electrical engineering experience. I think when one of my MFDs dies I will end up doing it. A lot of stuff...

    I can't speak for the 1200, but I believe it's more or less a standard domestic 1200. Meaning smooth power curve, runs more like a standard engine on a regular boat.

    Pro 785 depends heavily on...

    As long as there's no deep gouges, I use a soft hone, not a ball hone, just to freshen up the cross-hatch pattern. Nikasil is very tough and usually the rings wear out far before the cylinder walls...

    I think normal is 130 to 150. Might be a little low, Rings are probably a little old. You can pull the head and check clearances to see if it's time for new rings. You need a service manual to work...

    Do you have something you know runs well you can test the gauge on?

    And yeah, 50s is too cold. I've heard under 50 is dangerous but I only stay above 60. If you're on a big, deep body of water it...

    If it's an even 115 it's probably a bad reading, bad gauge, etc. As long as they are even you are fine to see how it runs as far as compression is concerned.

    True but EXR stock can barely struggle to make 50mph, no way it has enough balls to start jumping. 110hp Spark might be in pretty good shape, though you're still talking 20% more power on the pro....

    There's an auction coming up, they have a 2005 VX 110 Deluxe there. It's in the country, and it's in rough cosmetic shape. I could potentially pick it up extremely cheap.

    It's really not that bad. If you have a press you can apply less heat and press it in. I've seen old sleeves just pop out after a lot of heat is applied, not even having to hit them in.
