    Starter fluid is a big no. Gasoline only.

    As you bought it non-running, check the stator wiring. See this thread. We had another member who fought a similar issue with an MSX140 and it finally...

    The woodruff key shearing is likely from sudden stoppage of the engine---such as sucking up a tow rope.

    If you dribble some fuel down the throttle bodies, will it run until the fuel is gone?

    Have you checked for spark on the cylinder with the wet plug?

    I doubt if you'll get a reply from a post that is 12 years old. I'd suggest you create a new thread, identify exactly year & model you have, carb or injected, and as much detail of the symptoms &...

    I've had a number of the Polaris direct injected watercraft and I've never had a regulator, itself, fail. Actually, though your fuel pressure was a tad low, 22 psi, when the regulator was supposedly...

    "OL" is acronym for Over Load. When measuring resistance, in a single range meter, it would equate to open. So your PTO plug wire is defective.

    Sounds very reasonable to me. The challenge will be finding a flywheel.....let me re-phase, an affordable flywheel. There are a number of aftermarket sources for stators. SBT, eBay, maybe even...

    All you'll need is the starter drive (Bendix).

    Below is a photo of an 800 that through a rod. The starter drive is on the right side of the photo, next to some tools. It also has a reduction...

    From what I understand and what I've been doing, exhaust gaskets are no longer utilized. A Permatex product is now the sealant to utilize instead---copper something. I'm away from my shop and I'm...

    You'll need to remove the flywheel, as the stator is beneath it. It requires a pretty heavy duty puller. Also, be careful not to utilize too long of puller attaching bolts. They will contact the...

    If the starter drive (Bendix) is defective, you do not remove the actual starter motor to do so. You open up the flywheel housing to replace the starter drive.

    Yup and if memory serves me correctly, that is exactly the temp rating of those that fail within the EMM.

    Thank you for sharing Bret!

    I've seen a few posts about the connecting screws working loose, but I've yet to hear of that capacitor actually failing. I suppose, it is inevitable as age is a...

    Did you check for shorts between the stator sections? Also, I neglected to have you check for shorts from each stator section to ground.

    You can test your fuel canister assembly out of the watercraft. Utilize a loop of 1/4 fuel line (can be automotive grade for this) from the output barb to the return barb. Tee a fuel pressure gauge...

    OK, so all your stator section resistance measurements were zero, after a second or two? If so, that would be normal.

    How about the AC voltage measurements?

    Does it settle at zero and remain there, or does it flutter back to 15 - 30? It should settle quickly to zero and remain there. If it doesn't, I suggest you find another meter and re-run the tests.

    Your resistance readings are all high. If you hold the meter leads together, what does it read?

    Your AC voltage measurements are about right, with the exception of 4-9. That is half of what it...

    Ditto bfarnam. Also, a change in the exhaust system will impact the flow, which will, in turn, impact the fuel/air ratio required. As the fuel injection system is an open loop type, it will not...

    Alternative FPR Reinforcement & Snapped Off Return Barb Repair

    Well, as I indicated in our email exchange, I did not fair any better. The canister return line barb snapped off when I was razor cutting the hose off.
