    With the 2006 or newer TOPS that is now placed on the front of the engine(PTO side) you must make this block modification. The 2006 and newer blocks have a hole above the the balance shaft. This...

    Sorry, I have been slow at getting this information posted. There is no mention of an additional block modification that needs to take place if you use a 2005 or older block in a 2006 or newer...
  3. Solas "r" questions - is a 14/19R better or different than a 14/19

    The props without the trailing "R" seem to me cheaper. Does the 14/19R bring more to the table than the 14/19?

    Thanks,
    Greg

    Did some more searching and I think I can pull a 14/19 - someone talk me out of it if I am making a mistake.

    No because I put the engine back together before I even made this post. If you look at a 2006 block v. the 2005 block it is very obvious where the hole needs to be drilled. If you can find a...

    Your setup is quite a bit further than where I intend to go. So does that mean I will not be able to pull a 14/19R?

    Cite me a case where 38# injectors and an XChrager on an otherwise stock machine has caused a lean condition that burned a piston or other damage for that matter.

    Based on my research 38#...
  8. Please make prop recommendations - 2005 RXT w/X-charger

    I was in need of a prop before I put the X-Charger on. It was in pretty rough shape and I don't think a stock pitch prop is the ideal setup. I have not yet run wide open very long as I only have 8...

    Mostly because the oil level is so inconsistent and was down after I rode it. There is no oil in the hull and it does not appear to be burning oil, which leaves blow-by IF I am really losing oil....
  10. Is blow-by common/acceptable after a rebuild during break-in?

    2005 RXT.

    Finished a rebuild (New XCharger, hone, new rings, bearings, lapped valves, etc..) about a month ago. Previous owner had a failed S/C. After a few set backs, I finally was able to...

    Should the TOPS solenoid be really hot??

    2005 RXT

    Took my first ride tonight after rebuild (first ride ever on a 215HP machine.) After the ride, I was checking to make sure the TOPS is opening and I can feel it open up slowly when I put...

    Foam in TOPS Valve???

    2005 RXT.
    .2 hours on engine since rebuild.

    Have the engine back out of ski to get the water/oil pump seals replaced - dealer failed to put oil seal in before installing the rotary seal. I have...

    I found this post which tells me, I am probably OK with compression that high. http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=169256&highlight=compression.

    So since this is a non-supercharged engine using the stock higher compression pistons is it reasonable to think my numbers OK?

    What is the factory spec? It is not listed in the service manual that I could find.

    Thanks,

    I shortened up the post to get to the meat....

    1) Are these numbers OK to run on 87 octane as the ski is rated? Or do I need to retard the cam timing?
    2) Is there any inherent issue with having...
  17. Compression on a 155NA GTX - Compression too high?

    I have a 2006 155NA that I bought broke. Found a 2005 engine and used the block, pistons and rings(well within spec) from the 2005 and matched with my 2006 crank, heads, etc. All new bearings and...

    Ah ha! That now makes sense. I think this is the seal that goes in the Oil Pressure Sensor.

    Thanks,

    Can someone identify this part for me...

    I found this little part (about 1/2" diameter) assuming it is a SeaDoo part, in the bottom of my 2006 GTX 155NA hull. I do not remember seeing this anywhere.

    5 minutes before you posted this reply, I was ripping my engine out of the ski. As I was studying the layout of the block, it all made sense that this modification was required. I was able to put...

    I pulled my engine out last night, tore it down far enough to pull the balance shaft out and drilled the hole. I was able to leave the crank, rods and head connected and did not have to redo the...

    This is NOT covered in the head/block combination thread at the top of forum. I read that thread, many times before installing a 2005 block in my 155hp 2006 GTX. Now it seems I have to pull the...

    Can you explain this a little more - I am wondering how the Pump Shaft should be installed - it can only go into the case/seal one way. Do you mean the shaft was installed too far and then backed...

    I think I found the answer in the Tech manual: Oil out of weep hole (leak indicator) means a bad oil seal.

    Does this sound correct?

    This really pisses me off, because installing this seal,...
