    WTB - Parts FX HO MR-1 160hp Engine

    I'm looking for a running engine for a 2006 FX-HO. Engine only, wrecked or rough hull skis could be an option.

    I could drive and pick up in the midwest. I live in Kansas, I could travel to...

    Yeah, trying to blow out debris.

    I'm still squarely on the fence about what I'd like to do next. Love that stupid ski, she's beautiful. Spent a lot of time and money getting everything set up...
  3. Sorry, I messed up the original post and just...

    Sorry, I messed up the original post and just re-read it. We towed under 5mph. Sure that has caused some confusion in this thread.

    I'm pretty sure it was the OEM motor.

    I'm thinking if I...

    Pics of the 'Iridium' Plugs. Sorry, I didn't keep track of which cylinder they were in. I believe the plug with the tip intact was cylinder 2.

    MR-1 guys: Would a 2005 FX-HO engine be a pretty...

    It was a third party seller on Amazon. Seller: "Kaitlyn Deal". Looks like they've been removed from Amazon's list of sellers.

    Not sure if this helps. Recent compression tests. 94 hours was spring.

    If it's reasonable to get gas tested, I'm more than willing to siphon some from the take and get it done. Probably going to siphon it out at some point and run it in my car. Probably has 15 gallons...

    I'm still leaning towards the plugs. Running fake plugs that likely have little to no quality control can't be good. Some in the batch may run hotter than others, etc. Three of the 4 burnt up in...

    Stabil was added last fall as part of winterization. We do have I think up to 10% ethanol fuel here. No fuel was added this spring, this was the first time out. It was topped off last fall to...

    Fuel was from last fall when it was winterized. Topped off with premium fuel and with Stabil added. No tune.

    The spark plug was squashed.

    Yeah, I have an MR-1 HO 160hp non-supercharged. I saw TimeBandit dropped a TR1 into an older FX-HO. That's more work than I could take on though.

    I'm in Wichita, KS. Not exactly a hotbed for...

    I know 3 of 4 plugs had the electrode completely burnt up. Plug 2 I think still had the electrode. Cylinder 1 threw the rod. If you've bought plugs off Amazon/Ebay recently, I'd say it's worth...

    Welp. I think I found the reason it failed. The CR9EIX plugs I bought on Amazon were fakes. It's extremely difficult to tell. Easiest way is the torque spec on the box.

    How to spot fakes:...

    So, she's dead. The night king threw his spear and took her down (sorry, couldn't resist a GOT reference).


    Opinions on what to do next?

    Think I did gap the Iridium's. I should have read up more on the Iridiums instead of assuming... Ran it at idle after the oil change this spring on the hose and everything seemed to be normal. ...

    Could have been the iridium's. I know others have ran them in the mr1 ho engine without issue. Not sure why they burnt up in mine. Should have done a better job of clearing debris from the...
  19. My 2006 FX-HO's Engine Blew. Any ideas what may have caused this?

    My 2006 FX-HO Waverunner's engine blew out the first time out this year. Any ideas on what could have gone wrong with it?

    It ran fine all last summer, never had any issues. Bought it last year...

    As far as the bracket goes: I went some decent chop and it obviously held and didn't break anywhere. Being mounted horizontal instead of vertical, it did vibrate up and down quite a bit, making it...

    Took the ski out last weekend and I think it held depth at around 30-40. I'm not exactly sure how well, and it might depend on how smooth the water is. It looked like it gave me a dashed line at...

    I am curious, what kind of bracket did you use to mount the transducer? And how did you end up running the transducer cable into the hull?

    Gotcha, behind the ride plate. My real goal with the chartplotter and depth is actually for water skiing probably more than fishing. Our lakes here get shallow in weird places and I'm hoping to use...

    I haven't gotten out on the water yet to test the transducer placement. That's certainly something I'm interested in seeing.

    Being a 2006 FX I believe my ride plate is aluminum so I wouldn't be...
