    2002 GTX DI brown oily rave valve

    Finally had some time to pull one of the rave valves this afternoon. The one towards the bow of the ski. After pulling it and seeing that I needed a O-ring I decided to just put it back together. I did hit it with a little bit of brake cleaner. I googled search and found a couple of people having the same issue, but seems no one ever follows up and updates their post when they fix the problem.

    Didnt see any bellows like the videos Iíve seen on YouTube. All I did was take spring clip off of cap. Remove cap and spring underneath. Removed the two #4 Allen head bolts, then had to remove one from the other rave valve to get the spark plug ground clip off. Removed the piece of metal that was held on by the two Allen bolts and pulled out the rave which had a O ring as seen in the pictures. Thatís all I saw.

    The DI doesn't use bellows to operate the RAVE. It snaps open at 6000 rpm using compressed air into the cavity of the RAVE housing. Pull one housing at a time, unscrew the slider and clean. You may need to rebuild the entire valve assy. Synthetic oils usually leave an oily mess from incomplete combustion. That is how they keep from building up carbon on the valve.

    Need a little help with the O rings from the rave valve rebuild kit. Thereís four total in each kit. The biggest is self explanatory, but the other three I donít know. I know that one goes on the rave valve stem, but not sure which small one does. Then Iím left with the other small one and medium one. I havenít a clue where they go. Only seen the biggest one under the assembly and the one on the stem of the rave.

    Any my help will be greatly appreciated!

    TIA

    I figured it out. The small O ring goes on the sliding valve. The biggest goes under the valve housing. The medium one goes on the piston valve. The other small O ring that has the groove in it goes inside the valve housing.
