Something went wrong today. Ski ran fine then just out of no where she shut off. Tryed to start it up and started went a few yards and she shut off again, try to start again and sounded like something was holding her back. So got towed in and brought the ski home to operate. This is what I found.................. #2 went.

my opinion, and i may be wrong- but looks like you were running boarder-line lean for awhile now and #2 finnally gave. normally you would like to see a tad more wash on #1and3. i think you can see how #2 started flaking apart because of its lean condition. id like to hear what others think...

Frank, you certainly weren't running too rich . This sucks buddy, I hope the cylinder is ok? You and I seem to have real bad luck with #2

Not much piston wash on those.

Those are gouges around that piston... , gouges also around the head, well two machines down, and one to go.........got my trusty 1200 polaris to finish out the summer.

hard to tell from the pics, but the gouges arent too too deep, correct? just small indentations? if so those are small flakes that came off your piston
what size domes are you running?

Frank check and see if maybe one of them cages that you have came apart. It looks like something banged in between the squish band and the cylinder
