2000 RX Millenium help
Hey guys... I just added a 2000 SeaDoo RX Millenium edition to my stable. Picked it up cheap because it's sat for 3 years due to a blown motor... literally! It has a hole in the lower case... my guess is due to the piston rod punching through. There's a rope hanging from the water intake and appears to be stuck in the impeller. Could be the cause of the blown motor? I don't know the history of the ski. I haven't torn into it yet. I wanted to ask some questions first.
-Are there any common problems found with this ski?... electrical, engine, jet pump?
-Will any carbureted 951 motor bolt right into the RX hull?
-What's the best impeller to run on this ski?
-What's the top speed? (GPS)... I'm 6', 225lbs.
Here's some pics. As you can see, it needs a good douching... but it's all there. Gonna start the rebuild in a few months... maybe sooner. I have other skis that need attention first!

I say go for the 4-tec conversion

One would be better off finding an RXP if that had even come to mind.
I have seen what it takes to put a 4-tec in a GPR (a slightly larger hull than an RX with a much larger engine compartment) and I have worked on an RX so I think it could be done, but would not want anything to do with the job.

I'm not planning on keeping the ski. I took it as partial payment on money owed to me. I'm good with a wrench so I plan on fixing it... cleaning it... and selling it. After I ride it for awhile of course!
