    I think you're asking if there is any metering device under the jets. No, there is not. The needle and seat are in a different location and separate from the two jets.

    Let us know how it goes for you. I think I've done a total of 6 Mikuni carburetors using the dental floss trick. No torn nipples.

    Are you sure the engine isn't locked up?

    How about the impeller and wear ring? If this is a saltwater ski, salt may have made it's way in between the stainless steel liner and the outer housing...

    Your ski is an old school, 2-stroke. There is no oil to change like a 4-stroke car engine. A 2-stroke burns a special, 2-stroke oil while its running to keep the engine lubricated. You're gonna...

    I agree with you 100%! I do all of my own work and would never fathom paying that kind of money for an oil change and a little bit of inspection. It's not rocket science! Keep your receipts and...

    At the moment I don't think that you need an entire engine rebuild gasket kit. Have you done a compression check of the engine?
