    Pro is correct. By usual boating rules, PWC was the stand-on vessel and boat was the give-way vessel.

    Only issue I see with the rider is that he said his view was blocked by a yacht. If he was...

    How about a little water to dissolve the salt? I'm not sure how you'd soak those bolts. But I've had some luck freeing up salt-bound parts by soaking them in water. After all, water does dissolve...

  4. Kawasaki 4-Stroke Cylinder Identification

    There are several different cylinders used on the Kawasaki 4-stroke motors. They all look similar, but there are differences that one might not readily notice.

    I've seen ads for cylinders that...

    My picture is being used in this thread, so I'll also throw in my 2 cents.

    I pulled one of these apart last week to see what makes it tick. I pulled apart the 3 sections but stopped short of...

    The coupler is a solid piece, so yours is damaged. It's a direct opening to the outside of the hull and although the pump shaft sits inside of the mid-shaft, I'd have to guess water will enter the...

    I've opened up and fixed a few gauges. Instead of cutting the case, I bend back the soft plastic skirt that wraps around from the front. Underneath, there's a seam where the front piece attaches to...

    Damn... I pay about $450/year for insurance coverage on 2 skis. That gets me coverage for damage/loss to the skis, a half million in liability insurance when I ride my skis or someone else's, towing...

    Looks like it rotted thru and cracked. If it was just a hole, I'd take a shot at brazing it. But I wouldn't even try to fix the crack.

    I'd guess it was left to freeze with water in the block. ...

    Steve's cart is way better than anything else I've seen.

    But I'd add one more upgrade to the design. I'd set something up to be able to mount a tongue and a winch post. It would be great to be...

    Don't you need the top half of the crankcase to attach the front motor mount brackets?

    Don't you also need the rear cover for the same reason?

    Couldn't you just rig up the stock output shaft to do the same thing? I know it's on the short side, but you could probably stick the end of a broom handle into the output shaft to extend it. ...

    With 122 hours, if the pistons weren't damaged by the valves, I'd guess the pistons and rings have plenty of life left in them. I wouldn't just replace the rings because you have the engine out. ...

    Not a total crap shoot. Even if the Nikasil is shot, I'd say the rest of the parts are well worth the listed price for someone trying to keep their MSX running.

    Replaced the waterbox and noise is gone.

    Old waterbox clearly has some sort of issue. If you shake it, there's nothing moving around inside. But if you tap on it, you can hear something rattling.

    Never worked on a VX, but the FXHO has a gasket and the FX140 has an O-ring.

    Is it worth saving $20 on the gasket and rolling the dice on an oil leak?
