    I read through your original post too quickly. I didn’t realize you yourself never did a compression test. That’s where I would start so you know what you have and not trust what someone else told you. People come up with all kind of weird stories.
    Pull the plugs out and spin the motor over to make sure no oil is in the engine. Then do a compression test and post results

    Correct, the ski is currently all buttoned up in my garage. Once my battery Tender arrives tomorrow I'm gonna do the compression test (want to make sure battery is strong and don't wanna kill it). I'll run the starter with plugs off and make sure any fogging oil drains down and then do the compression test a few times. I'll report back with what I find. Eventually I'll at the least pull the heads and replace with OEM head gaskets. I can take pictures of the head and post them up. I've just been putting off taking the heads off since I'll have to mess with resealing them once removed.

    I also did a real quick calculation and found, with the assumption of 36cc heads, that I would need double the stock head gasket (0.63mm) to gain 6cc (back to 42cc heads). Not sure if I can double up on the OEM gaskets or buy thicker ones. Or even make my own?

    Why not run it on the hose let it burn off excess oil and then perform a test?

    I will once it warms up. Currently been 10-30 F here in Michigan and 1 of my 2 spigots froze and burst... But yes once I can run a hose to it that'll be one of the first things I'll do.
