    Smile Total Rebuild FX 140 in vx 110 hull (Sweden)

    Hello Greenhulks !

    New on Greenhulk!
    Live in Sweden and want to share my Project with you.
    Problem in Sweden is two things with Jetski, Goverment and the weather. But the coastgard do nothing about the "forbid" of using Jetski thise days.

    I have one Fx 140 like a donator machine and a total new vx 110 hull.
    Baught the Fx in parts / Engine in boxes. I am going to post manny Pictures and i think i need some help with some parts. In sweden there is no manny knowledge about this funny machines.


    My first cuestion is , does fx 2003-2004 have Nikasil or not ??
    What i can see its steel sleeves .
    A dealer in sweden / reseller of SBT says Nikasil . They got the answer by mail today. I can bet a buck or so its steel!!
    Why they say Nikasil?

    Hope you going to enjoy my build, Pictures on the way!

    Some better Pictures!
    This is the vx hull and the tacho and Electronic box fit perfectly
    In this Picture you can see the cylinder better, STEEL sleeves , am i right ?
    The crank is nice looking and also the engineblock. Little worried about the cylinder if this is ok or not, there is a fine fine scratch or (god forbid) a Little crack , extremly hard to tell.
    Also the cylinderhead i dont know anything about yet, the machineshop are going to tell if i cant se anything wrong with head and cylinder.
    Have anyone reesleved a fx 1000 block?
