    780 engine

    780 engine assembled and checked.

    Only lost 1.5 inches of vacuum after 10 mins when doing the leak down test

    Squish clearance is tight. 50 MAG, 47 CEN, 51 PTO

    Looking through old threads, Ken from OP told me the OP worked well from 43-50 thousandths.

    I really hope his memory is good.

    I installed 30 thou Ocean Pro copper head gaskets to gain more clearance.

    I set the reeds for light tension in order to make this ski better for tubing.

    Besides, the G/F likes accel over top speed.

    This is how I got it

    First pics





    Since then, I've recovered the seat.

    Installed the purple mirrors

    Cut the hole bigger for the 6" Acon cleat

    Going to install a purple handlebar cover

    And if I can find a purple reverse lever, that will go on too.
