    Cameron's 01 Ultra 150 Project

    Just started this project last week. I have an 01 Ultra 150 that got a crack in the side last summer (long story). So I now have a winter project. I Have stripped the plastics off and just removed the motor today. The motor ran great but had high hours so I figured this would give me a chance to go through it and do a top end rebuild. My next move is to remove the fuel and oil tank then flip her over and start some much needed body repair.

    I look forward to seeing the progress Are you planning on truing the bottom or just repairing? Then I assume you are doing paint all over. Btw if you have a single trailer you can put the ski on it upside down and backwards to work on it.

    Yeah I plan on paint all over. The crack is right next to where the foot rail is. What do you suggest on repair for a crack? Also not sure what you mean by "true". I'm new to this jet ski thing...always worked on bikes. This is kind of a new venture for me but so far it's goin pretty good. Thanks for the help any other tricks would be greatly appreciated.

    Well the ski is finally completely stripped and it's official my garage now looks like a parts warehouse!! Waitin on some buddys to help me flip this sucker over then this project will continue. Until then I'll start cleaning some engine parts and prep those for paint. Also I am going to rebuild the top end does anyone have a preference on pistons?

    I have used oem and wsm, both worked well. The wsm kits are a little cheaper.

    Trueing means to staighten the bottom of the hull. Most hulls have a slight hook at the very back end. That can be sanded off to free the hull up and gain speed. It may also have low and highspots throughout the bottom. You can check it with a long strait edge to ind the flow spots. Another good method is to mist the bottom with some black spray paint then run over the bottom with a long sanding block. Sand front to rear, dont round the chines work at sharpening them. one area to avoid is the groved pads at the back. Dont fill them but it is ok to do some sanding across them. On mine I filled the low area just forward of that. Most of my work was in the back 4ft of the bottom.

    hull

    Beautiful work. Did you do any work around the pump area like smoothing out the mismatches between the intake and the rideplate?

    Just Ordered all my replacement parts for the ski today. Found a small Chip in the number 3 cylinder. Looks like a piece of the ring chipped off and caused some damage. Im really glad I took on this project, their has been so many things I have found wrong or broke its crazy the thing still ran. For anyone who is interested I found a place in Alabama that will renickel your cylinder walls and bore to piston size for $170 bucks (www.langcourt.com) I also ordered the solas dynafly inpeller, R&D Aquavein Intake, R&D Extended Ride plate and Aggresser Sponsons. Got all the Back end parts painted black (drain plugs, speed sensor, and ride plate. Now just waiting to recieve all the parts. To Shogun I smoothed out a lot of it I was a little nervous to make to many alterations to the hull.
