    I reiterate, Start the engine, THEN turn on the water. Turn off the water, THEN turn off the engine. NEVER allow water to run unless the engine is running!!! You don't need to 'time' the water...

    Remove the spark plug wires and ground them. Remove the spark plugs and cover the holes with an old towel. Stand back and spin the engine over with the starter. If there is fuel in the crankcase,...

    A little oil goes a looooong way. If it had oil spilled in it in the past, it's going to be hard to eliminate it. Try a garden sprayer and pour some liquid laundry soap in there and swish it...

    Wow! I never knew that Polaris made a standup! Actually, that looks really nice! I certainly wouldn't pay $7000 for it, though! Parts are probably scarce as hen's teeth.

    Welcome aboard, Texas Scrambler!

    Where to begin? Well, do NOT just hop on and ride! It's 20 years old and it probably needs some updating & general maintenance.

    Do you know how to run it on...

    Oh! I guess I never noticed those. I suspect that it has something to do with metering the fuel pressure for the return line or something. I don't know for sure. I do know that the carbs are all...

    Hell! At 62, you're still a pup!

    Yea, this Coronavirus nonsense is ridiculous. Being on the water is the safest place to be. Saltwater is even better because it's a natural disinfectant.

    You need to buy the needle & seat, P/N 16030-3704.

    You may also need the arm, P/N 16055-3702; spring, P/N 92144-3764; and screw, 92009-3712.

    Here's a thread about the plate that was missing...

    It's missing the seat for the needle valve.

    The fuel rails are the 4 tubes on the outside of the carbs.

    Don't know, but I believe he puts an extra washer somewhere that makes it a bit richer. It's been mentioned on his website forum, but he never disclosed what he actually did. You can go there and...

    Hmmm... I'm going to have to ask my brother-in-law (retired Border Patrol) about those coins... That's cool!

    A water temp gauge is pretty useless. These engines will blow up before the gauge...

    I don't know if you have to pull the engine to get the fuel pickup out or not. Sometimes the service manual will say to pull it, when you really don't have to. I've pulled fuel pickups/internal...

    That parts diagram is for the wrong 'Ski! That's for a fuel injected 1100, your's is carbureted.

    Did you remove the needle valve seats and check/clean the screens underneath them?

    The trim was a major problem on that model. Water could actually get in through the cable. That's why later 'Skis have rubber bellows on the trim cable.

    Gas gauge problem is probably due to the...

    After 10 minutes of running on new plugs, the middle plug is what i would expect the to look like. The black one looks like it's way too rich, the white one looks too lean, but 10 minutes isn't much...

    I haven't removed a flywheel from that particular model of engine, but it certainly appears that you screw a bolt into that threaded hole in the middle of the flywheel and it will come off when you...

    Well, it certainly looks like the plug that is white either isn't getting fuel. If you continue to try running it like that, you'll be rebuilding it very soon.

    Man, I'm sorry to hear that! There are no inexpensive solutions. The best thing would be to find a Waverunner, or boat, that uses the same engine where the hull has been wrecked. Offhand, I don't...

    The oil pump is the most reliable part of the 'Ski. Upgrade the oil lines with Tygon tubing and secure with .025" stainless steel safety wire or Oetiker clamps. It won't hurt a thing to make the...

    I would highly recommend that you do a little searching around here for Skiworx. I've sent stuff to him in the past and service was slow. Now,...

    May have gotten hot, looks like something was bouncing around in there. Maybe part of a ring broke or the top ring land chipped off near the exhaust port.

    It's a bad time of year to be sending an engine off for repair. You haven't even made arrangements with anyone yet?

    I'd recommend that you do it yourself.

    What do you want to have done to it?
