    I have been working on getting the ski onto the dolly I bought. It sits higher than my trailer so it had been a challenge by myself. Hopefully I'll have some help this weekend to figure it out.

    I imagine you don't want to read my entire thread. One thing i will say after all I have been through is install a see through piece of fuel line where it enters the fuel pump. That way you can see...

    Looks like fairly normal carbon build up to me. I would do what turboman said and check the fuel filter. Maybe it is something as simple as it is starving for fuel.

    You can start by pulling and inspecting the plugs. If you have a dead cylinder the plugs will probably show that. At least they did for both of my seizures. Once the plugs are out you should...

    They were vague and only had short answers when I talked with them. They also forgot to send me back the coupling, magneto, and other parts I needed from the crank I sent them. They did send them out...
  7. I can't speak for long term reliability but I...

    I can't speak for long term reliability but I bought my rebuilt crank from www.pwcengine.com when I rebuilt my engine this summer. So far it is working great. Only time will tell if it holds up. I...

    Unfortunately I didn't have time at work this week to rebuild the pump. Odds are my next water test update will be next spring. Maybe I will get lucky and have one more water test this fall but that...

    Maybe after I replace the pump bearings and I am not running premix I will pick up a few more mph? I don't know if running premix and the oil injection reduces performance at all.

    I won't run it without the reserve for long. I will replace the petcock valve if I need to.

    I took it for a short ride today with the Solas impeller Impros repitched for me. I hit just over 57...

    I currently have it setup exactly that way. The fuel gauge does work. I was thinking about leaving it that way for now but my OCD might not be able to live with it forever.

    On a side note the day...

    A new petcock valve is ~$100 shipped. Not terribly expensive but not cheap either. I will try to clean it up and see how it comes out. If it doesn't look great then I will have to replace it.

    I got the petcock valve apart. There is corrosion or mineral deposits inside where the oring on the shaft seals. I am going to clean it up with some fine grit sand paper and install a new oring....

    Update: now that the fuel lines connected to the petcock aren't leaking I was still losing pressure slowly. I bought a new gauge to make sure that wasn't the issue. With the new gauge installed I am...

    Thank you FL_Rider! 5 psi is what I will try.

    Once I have all the fuel lines back in the ski here is my plan to pressure test it. I am going to connect a hose to the vent check valve connection on the tank. Then pump it up to 15 psi and check...

    I tested the petcock valve tonight using the original fuel line I had replaced with the Shields fuel line. The original fuel line fits tighter on the petcock valve fittings and there are no leaks....

    I called Impros today and told them I was hitting 7200 rpms with the stock damaged impeller. They said they are going to repitch the Solas 15/21 to better match my ski. I know they know what they are...

    I'll take a good look tonight. I will also test it with the old fuel lines as well.

    I used the Shields Marine fuel line you recommended early in this thread.

    I know worm gear clamps aren't as good as the Oetiker clamps but are the clamps designed to hold the hose on or actually...
  21. The nipples appear to be fine. From what I...

    The nipples appear to be fine. From what I understand the hose clamps are there just to hold the line on. Not to seal it. Which means to me the line is too stiff to seal against the petcock nipples....

    I did do a WOT run for about ten seconds or so. I have about 4 hours on it now since the complete rebuild so I figured it was safe to try it. I hit 7200 rpms and 56.86 mph. That was using an app on...

    I am testing the petcock valve for leaks. It is leaking out of where the fuel line connects to the valve. I tightened the hose clamp as tight as I can and it is still leaking some. I cut an inch off...

    I am out on the water now. I ran the reserve fuel line from the tank directly to the fuel filter. It is running great with no air bubbles in the fuel line. Here is a shot of the new plugs with about...

    It is looking like this Sunday might be my last shot at a water test for the season. I am planning on connecting the reserve line from the tank directly to the fuel filter. I will then remove the...
