    you don't want a loose washer floating around in the engine not telling where it will end up. So instead of getting to the bottom of the DESS key issue you've now screwed yourself into pulling the engine and pulling the pto and spending a bit of money on some gaskets, and flywheel bolts ( for starters), and you STILL have to deal with the dess issue. and none of that is a guarantee that you'll actually find the washer without splitting the crankcases ( more time and expense)

    I'd suggest in the future following along with the leads provided by the people you've come to and asked for help. It typically works out better that way for everybody

    of course at this point you could part the ski out, sell the trailer and make a couple of hundred bucks for your troubles since the engine compression was low on one jug anyway.

    so let's assume you got the inspection camera took a look and found the piston was damaged and there were bits of piston ring stuck into the top of the piston and the ski needed to have the engine rebuilt, anyway.

    a fellow on another thread is parting out a 215 with a supposedly good engine in it ( he hasn't done the compression checks last time I looked) Pick up that runner for $1000 and you're still in a relatively good position of your ski money wise.

    you don't want to go further then a total investment of $2500 without that resulting in a good running 13 year old ski. You could likely buy a good runner for $3k during the off season.

    Those are ceramic clutch washers. You will definitely need to have the SC rebuilt. You might have been luck finding the washer if you take the valve cover off. Its made of steel so best bet would be a long magnetic pickup tool. Good luck.

    Ouch!!! SBT! Don't use their connecting rod bolts. Bad experience in the past, i ended up sending them back to SBT, poor quality, it was like the bolt threads were cross threaded from factory..

    The jetski value is $5200 running good so if I had to put $2500 in it I could still make money

    best of luck to you if in the end you opt to go ahead with this project, the number you stated is for a ski sold by a dealer btw.

    average retail is $4000 btw NADA, $3540 KBB

    --------------------

    just for comparison, I had to pull an engine to fix an improperly installed encoding gear from a "guy who works on seadoos" last season

    just for the pull and resetting the flywheel, labor was $350+gaskets, bolts, oil/filter/coolant. The "guy" decided he couldn't be bothered with aligning the engine. I found all the shims in the forward storage box

    by the time it was all over ( the shop blew the ECU jump starting the ski because the timing wheel wasn't installed correctly) he was into the ski for close to 6k

    and that was for a 2003 185

    dont be that guy

    we've all have seen too many of these over the last few years.

    sell it, make some money and buy a runner, in the end you'll be far happier

    again, best of luck any way you go.

    choose wisely, this ski doesn't owe you a thing.
