    Yes, indeed. I pulled the engine, tore it down, ordered the parts, screwed up, ordered a few more, got it cleaned up, rebuilt, and reinstalled over the weekend. Water pump was leaking (due to my error when pulling the engine) so had to address that as well. Got it buttoned up this afternoon and fired it up in the driveway...and miracle of miracles it runs. No, it doesn't just run it runs great!

    Though I'm fairly mechanically inclined and infinitely curious I was more than a little intimidated by this task. Even on relatively low hour unit, at 15 years old the risk/reward wasn't favorable to tackling this but I did. Without the resources on this web site, Jerry's quick/relevant replies, and a little help from YouTube (3 ft Deep) there is absolutely, positively no way this would have been a successful endeavor. Hearing that bad boy purr in the driveway on the hose has me so stoked to get it out on the water I'm not sure how I'm expected to do a proper break in with all the freaking anticipation. Ridiculous!!

    Thank you, Jerry, for keeping this forum and thread alive for over nine years so us "vintage" SeaDoo owners can tackle big projects and have positive outcomes! You da man!!

    About to take off my SC to send in and I noticed a little bit of oil in the air intake hose. Is this normal? I am worried since I dropped a wrench and it went under the engine and when I pulled it out with a magnetic wand, it had oil all over it. I have oil puddle under engine. Went from just wanting rebuild to what issues do I have?

    It's normal to have some oil in the supercharger.
    If you have oil under the engine two problem areas to look at are the oil seal at the back of the engine that the driveshaft goes into and the O rings on the oil cooler on the side of the engine block under the intake manifold.

    there are a couple of other less common places that oil can leak

    1-oil sender under the intake manifold ( rare but I've seen a few drippers over the years)
    2-PTO cover, loose or stripped bolt or a sloppy job cleaning off the old gasket, this assumes your pto cover has been off at some time. Clue there is marks on the lifting bosses indicating that the engine had been removed at one time. Pulled a pto cover once and one of the bolts ( the leaker) had toothpicks jammed in the hole so the bolt would tighten. Imagine that.
    3-Sloppy mechanics spilling oil when doing a change ( they try to dump too much down the inlet and it overflows) and not mopping up after.
    4-and least likely, but still a candidate, the orings on the blower itself, those are rather obvious when the blower comes out

    for now, mop it up with a shop rag with some brake cleaner on a bit of coathanger wire and check again after a few rides, If the oil is substainatial , use a suction hose ( substantial is 4oz or more)

    typically big leakers make big messes, and chasing after a smallish leak on a ski that is older has diminishing returns

    quickest way to pinpoint the source of an oil leak in a tight spot like a ski hull is with a dye kit and an inspection camera and as you imagine, that's more pain.

    I like a clean hull more then anybody, but problems sometimes take lots of time to track down. At the least a $30 inspection cameras from amazon will let you get a look at the oil cooler connections without any disassembly. money well spent.

    I just pulled the supercharger from my 2012 RXPX260 an was going to send it to you for a rebuild but wanted to know if it should be rebuilt of just replaced. The ski is 8 years old 27 hours but has never had a rebuild. I've had 3 oem intercooler failures even with flushing with salt away every use and currently have a fizzle on order and just ordered a strainer from this site that I'll install too.

    Looking at the supercharger it looks like salt must've gotten down to the supercharger when the intercoolers failed, I know I had that happen to the throttle body that caused issues once.

    When I pulled the supercharger I saw there are a couple small dents in the fins but didn't know how bad they are and if you think it should be rebuilt, or if I should just replace it?

    I would replace it, you could definitely fix it, but your on borrowed time

    Not to highjack a thread but I have an 2003 gtx 185 and the supercharger just failed on me. I can spin the turbine with my fingers. Now I’m aware the the 04-07 had the ceramic washers in the but someone told me the 03s didn’t. Should I be concerned about issues in the bottom end or should I just rebuild it and run with it? It has 112 hours on it and superchargers never been rebuilt before.
