    Yep, do what the ngk box says. When new its a different value than when you seat it after the washer is crushed. The area where the threads meet the rest of the body is super thin so you can only put...

    My bet is that if the plugs were replaced in the process, you probably just over tightened them. I have done the same thing before but fortunately caught it before foring the ski up. The plugs are...

    Should be fine then, just treat it like a cylinder head that uses a single layer gasket.

    Yeah, thats normal. On sealing surfaces try not to use rolocs or scotch brites because its hard to keep from making gouges or wrinkles in the metal. If I have a perfect/new manifold I will leave the...

    Yep exactly. I clean the header with a piece of 1000/1500/whatever fine grit paper on a piece of glass then wipe it down with brake cleaner. Spray both sides of the gasket with copper spray, and...

    Man I have never had these issues before even with salt ridden skis. I am not sure why its such a struggle for this many people. I use ultra copper spray on the gasket just as a belt and suspenders...

    Its one hose clamp and a single electrical connector. Look for the black rubber boot thing and pop it off the tank, should be right under the steering. Once free of the tank, plug it in and move the...

    The sender on the 15f and 12f uses multiple floats and they do go bad over time with poor quality fuel or water. Unfortunately its an oddball sensor range so oem is the best option for replacement. ...

    As soon as the intake is out of the way, the process is the same. The problem is that the 12f intake is huge compared to the 15f and its harder to move.

    The flush port on the top of the ski is higher than the pump outlet, by flushing the system up at the top, you push the schmoo out the pump. It sort of runs the cooling system backwards.

    There is a stainless insert in the inlet to the waterbox with a taper on it, if you cut the inlet off it probably should be moved to the new piece rather than just turning a solid aluminum part. I...

    I would start then by going through and blowing compressed air though each connection. You could have a block on the water log under the intake manifold. Or it could be the cylinders themselves.

    Does it overheat on the hose, in the water, or both? Do you have the yellow hose plug installed?

    It should only leak when the tunnel is pressurized since the pressure side of the pump is downstream. This is an important distinction because if you tow the ski in it will also leak.

    Boost is sort of a false number, it exists only in so far as you have a restriction. Remember, engines are basically air pumps, the kawasaki tvs setup works because it moves lots of volume across the...

    They are, you just have a different boost curve, the tvs is much more linear than the centri chargers which make more boost up top rather than down low. The bigger problem to most of our minds is...
