    I'm contemplating doing the same when I put my Weber MPE750 back together... but it's a lot of effort for the 3 people that might ever need it. Haha!

    Cheers!
    I have learned that having really well done online resources helps a lot more people than you might think. For every person that actually joins and provides comments here, there are others who will find and use the info, but may not become visible on the forum.

    They WILL be visible out on the waterways, lakes and rivers, riding their properly repaired machines!

    Day 2 - Mostly spent prepping the cylinders for installation. Cleaned them up and then lightly honed / deglazed. This took about 1.5 hours for all three jugs. Cleaned all contact surfaces, and cleaned / siliconed the jugs themselves. Still need to wash out and re-oil the bores.

    I'd sooner not be doing engine re-builds if I can help it as I'm a time served mechanical engineer and it would just feel like I'm at work but not getting payed for it lol. After 20years of working on engines etc it can become a chore. Only advantage is that I have not done many 2stokes and never any work on a jetski before now. So it keeps me keen and interested in gaining new knowledge.

    A little birdie once told me if you use a real thin layer of the threebond on the base gaskets, it makes them very easy to remove.

    Set the upper case on your inverted cylinders, drop in your crank, and torque the cases together and you won't need extra hands.
