    Looks like I missed out on that Ultra. The ad is no longer up and I haven't heard from the seller. I'll keep my eyes open.

    Your saying the Ultra 150 is a lot more fun to ride than the STX-R?

    What do ada heads do? I assume they raise the compression and hence power. What else is required to be done for them to work with a stock engine?

    Is there anything different from the STX-R I should look for if I decide to make the drive to look at it?

    I swapped out the Shields fuel line from the output of the petcock to the fuel filter with the original fuel line. I ran it for about 15 minutes on the hose switching back and forth from main to...

    I know some of the 99 models require expensive spark plugs. The 2000 and newer use the same spark plugs as my STX-R. What else is different through the years of the Ultra 150 besides the color scheme?

    He text me a copy of the registration and it shows it is a 2000.

    I'm back!

    Weather was decent enough to roll the ski outside and do some work. I had ordered a used petcock on eBay and I installed it today. Sure enough I could see major air bubbles in the piece...

    Unlikely but make sure your throttle cable isn't too tight. An easy way to do this is just unbolt the bracket from the exhaust pipe so there is slack in the line.

    Also make sure that your idle...

    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...

    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...
