    Don't mangle your hoses!!!

    I can't remember which member it is here that so hates seeing mangled hose ends, but this will make him wince.



    This is the same ski I just rebuilt the carbs on, it also had a 'spare' fuel pump in it just hanging on the hoses. I rebuilt the stock triple with a kit from Watcon.

    I suspect the previous owner tried everything to fix the intermittent throttle issues EXCEPT rebuilding the carbs. And he probably thought he had a hose leak at some point.

    But jeeez...talk about going all Henry on the clamps!

    Only use those where I need to remove the hose frequently or easily.
