    Milky oil

    Was out last week when my clutch went . A few days later started to take ski apart took charger off and seen milky oil . So few things it can be oil cooler , head or head gasket . Had some great help from a forum member on here who's also from gods country ( uk for people who's not familiar where gods county is ) sure he knows who he is if reading this . he's told me how to pressure test the head which I'm going to do tomorrow.
    Before my last outing I'd snapped the ride plate bolt so I had to take water box out and I could only do this by removing the exhaust to replace the bracket . I was told the exhaust gasket was reusable so I reused it I'm now aware it should be replaced . I'm getting mixed opinions on my next question. If the exhaust gasket needed replacing and I never done so could the water be getting in from exhaust gasket causing my milky oil problem ???

    Personally I'd say no...... more likely head problem. What year is ski? Hrs etc?

    Can't speculate until you check the head.
