Big Thanks, It runs and doesn't overheat
After all of the help you guys have given me on here, I'm pleased to say the ski is running and not over heating.
Today was the first day i've taken the ski on the water, I launch it onto a river and it was wicked.
I run it for around 20mins then checked it no over heating.
I then used the ski for a hour with no heating issues, 2 hours later and it was still cool.
I was able to touch the engine cylinders etc and they all felt cool.
Got a couple of other problems, like the no fuel error and red light flashing but ill read my oweners guide etc
Thanks again for your help guys im well pleased
I'll put some pic's up later

Awesome Job there! It sure is nice to have all these guys on here helping each other out!. could you imagine the repair bill? Hmm lets see. 17 guys helping at 95/hour. times 2 hours is $3230.00! And the best part----The help was FREEEEEEEEE!!!!! Now thats a deal. Glad to hear she's up n runnung great! Next! lol
If your interested in seeing what temps your running, you could buy one of these and keep it on the ski for instant readings. I bought it at "Hobby Shack" in the USA. 28.00

Is it legal over there to fly down little canals like that? I'd be in jail around here!. NO-WAKE ZONE! Unless your 100 feet from the shore. That would be fun to do doing like 60! all the spray hitting people on the sidewalks! C-YA!
Great looking ski too. Looks brand new! Don't CRUSH em, RESTORE them.

Glad to hear you got it all sorted out.
The low fuel error and red blinking light are usually a bad float. They get gas logged and sink.
If the light was flashing, what was your maximum RPM reading?
Often the red light limits your RPM to 4200. It's what we call "limp mode". Allows you get home while conserving fuel or reducing heat. It's activated by low fuel, low oil, and an overheat reading.
If you were limited to 4200 RPM, you're in for a BIG surprise when that engine starts turning 6300 RPM. ALOT more FUN!!!!!
You can actually test it to make sure it's bad. If so, Randy from Watcon was selling replacements for $26 USD.
Put an ohmeter on your fuel sender wires when the tank is full (or close to full). It should read almost 33 ohms. If it reads closer to 240 ohms, then it's sunk and not good any more. (although some have said they actually dried theirs out and came back to life)
Or you can remove the fuel sender from the gas tank. Then remove the black cap on the bottom of the tube. Inside is a foam float. Remove that and place it into a cup of fuel. If it sinks, it's bad.

I think I saw a 5 kph sign in one of the pics. He breaks all the rules.
We don't need no stinking rules!
