    Never bought a new craft myself (yet), but my philosophy with new cars is that it's better to negotiate invoice-up rather than negotiate msrp-down.

    I've removed a few impellers already ... I'm well aware of the amount of force (even with some added heat) it takes. I don't get the Solas-logic in reducing surface area - no wonder the adaptor tools...

    Marty, I'd talk you "in" to a new ski if it is in your budget.
    The rational is simple: if you were to buy a used craft and save a grand or two - great. But here's the problem ... once you enter the...

    Hummmm ... my memory is flaky that far back. I know the FX does.

    Update:
    Okay, so as I look at the 2003 fiche, it appears to pre-date the Security box stuff we see on other FXs. Well, least that...

    Yes, should see 12v on the fuel pump power harness connector when you tap the starter button. However, being that the engine won’t run, it will quickly again power off the fuel relay within 1-2...

    Correct. I commonly refer to this as a high-loop, and it must travel above the outside water-line. FWIW, it's not hard, using a combination cold-air induction tubing (both aluminum & silicone) to...
