    use a air hose to blow out the crank real good. then oil up the rod and side bearings with 2 stroke oil then re assemble engine and you should be good.

    for some reason i thought you were working on a gpr 1200 motor. now that i see this is a 2 cyl motor i am not sure the forum information is correct. How ever is is very easy to get the head gasket on wrong on these two cyl motors. Lets start over on this post . Check the head gasket for correct installation and be sure the exhaust manifold to cyl gasket is correct and all sealing surfaces are flat. I also run a thread tap in each bolt hole on the cyl where the bolt holes for the exhaust manifold are to be sure the threads are clean up inside real good and clean the bolts with a wire brush, i use red lock-tite on all exhaust manifold bolts and blue lock-tite on all head bolts and cyl base bolts ( clean holes and threads in base bolts also) Good luck.

    Thanks again, @2fast4u. I found that I had the exhaust manifold gasket on upside down. New one is on order.

    The base gasket was correct, so it's back on.

    Hopefully it's back together this weekend and in the water. But hopefully the water isn't in it!

    glad you found the problem, your motor should be just fine. You might want to add some extra 2 stroke oil in your next tank of fuel to provide a little extra lubrication to slick the crank and pistons back up since you had water in there. Good Luck

    Got it all put back together late last night. Put it on the hose, no leaks! It'll be in the lake later today.
    Thanks for the tip on the extra oil.

    This will also help with the brake in of your new parts, try not to run your ski at full throttle for the next tank of gas give the engine some brake in time.
