    96 xp wont run

    I picked up a used 96 xp this winter. It starts on the trailer but won't run in the water. It turns over fine but won't start. I did get it to run once but it barely ran and it was making a ton of white smoke. BTW the oil tank has been removed so I am running premix and the chokes were removed and replaced with a primer. The cylinders have good compression.

    Thanks Todd

    How is the Rotary shaft getting it's lubrication? Did the previous owner just loop the line? and if so, is it mostly full of oil?
    Reason i ask is because the inner crank seals seep that oil into the crankcase when they sit. Put a fresh set of plugs in it and try that..

    It is looped. It always runs out of the water it just wont run in the water. I will try a fresh set of plugs. If the seals for the rotary shaft are leaking do I need to supply fresh oil to it?

    I got it to run for a short time in the water with fresh plugs. I couldn't keep it running in the water, as soon as I pulled it out of the water it started right up and ran good on the trailer. any thoughts
