    So if there is an air leak causing a run away the stop button won't kill it? How do the plugs fire if the stop button is pressed?


    I am not questioning you I am curious how a runaway works.

    To be sure of this remove the bracket that bolts the throttle cables to the engine. I am embarrassed to say I had the same issue that I swore was not because of an over tight throttle cable but I...

    I probably can't help much but I will post my experiences since I've owned my project rebuild. Since it has been running perfectly this year the temp of the three pissers all feel identical to me...

    I ran it for hours on Sunday as well and zero issues. I let everyone there ride it as hard as they wanted to. I pulled a few friends wake boarding too. I also gave it a few good minutes of severe...

    All I can say is this old thread helped me verify my carbs were not an anomaly. The the #1 carb did not have that jet/flow restrictor that it appears carb #2 and carb #3 both have. I spent hours...

    If a cylinder is blocked of cooling it won't take long for it to over heat and seize. The triple pisser kit is the most recommended mod because it allows you to look over at the side of your ski and...

    She ran perfectly all day! I even took my bulldog for a ride. Today was my favorite day out on the ski by far! I hope tomorrow is just as fun.

    I received the metal fuel check valve and installed it tonight. I pressure tested it prior to installing it. It held 5 psi without any issues. I installed it with hose clamps instead of zip ties...

    I think I understand now. The hose that connects to the pump feeds the water inlet pipe on the three cylinders. The pump pressurizes the water and forces it up to the water inlet pipe. That cools the...

    Just so I understand, the water flowing out of the hole on top on the left is coming from the stinger. The other two holes on top are for the bilge. Where is the water coming from that enters the...

    I took it out for a couple of hours. I even pulled my friend wake boarding. It seems to be running perfectly! I'll install the new check valve when it arrives but I am not nervous about running it...

    Nice! I didn't know to know to not remove it until after I already did. I will say getting that set properly changed my throttle response dramatically. I had a bit of a bog and it cleared up...

    I bought 3 of them on eBay for around $12 shipped. If you took the fuel rails apart you will need a total of 19 of them. Check the seal on the back of the fuel...

    The idle adjustment screw can get frozen in place. Unfortunately you will need to replace it. That will require removing the broken piece and cleaning up the threads. You will most likely have to...

    You need to remove the carb assembly from the ski. Working on them in the hull will be next to impossible. Never mind if/when you drop a small part into the abyss!

    Be very careful removing the screws. Since it is a salt water ski they may be stuck. Use a proper fitting screw driver and if that doesn't work you might need an impact screw driver. Hopefully that...
