    >>> 1995 Polaris SL 750 <<<

    Welcome everyone,

    Today I have a pair of 1995 Polaris SL 750 Jet ski's and one I plan on restoring to working condition. I have created this thread to give complete overview of the entire restoration process. This thread and this post will be updated quite often with more information and pictures as it comes. I anticipate this to be a fun restoration.

    *THIS THREAD WILL BE UPDATED REGULARLY*


    Left ski = Bad (the one in the grass)
    Right Ski = Good (the one on wood support)


    History:
    One engine is locked up and one is in fair shape. The ski that is locked up is being used for parts for the one with the working engine. These ski's have been sitting for 13 years with NO use. The "good" ski I know is not locked up. I connected a battery to the engine and hit the start button for a sec to see if it would turn over. It does turn over but sounds a little rough (no oil).

    These jet ski's were used in salt water.


    To Do List:
    -[COMPLETE]Clean out gas tank and oil reservoir.
    -[COMPLETE]Fix/Replace broken knob in front of jet ski.
    -Reconnect and Solve placement of the disconnected oil lines.
    -Rebuild engine and replace any rusted parts.
    -Rebuild carburetors.
    -Replace the seals in the drive shaft through-hull bearing.
    -Replacing all seals.
    -Replace fuel/oil lines and filters.
    -Inspect the bearings in the jet pump stator.
    -Inspect and clean all electrical connections and plugs.
    -Inspect, remove, and clean the bolt threads that mount the bed plate to the bottom of the engine.
    -Troubleshoot a non-working MFD.
    -New battery
    -New Paint Job
    *List Not completed*

    Work Log:
    4/4/10 - Disconnected and removed engine form hull. Removed the jet pump and drive shaft. Insides of engine are kinda dirty, but no rust (yet). Further inspection required to determine if this is a usable engine.
    4/3/10 - Disconnected everything in-order to take the engine out tomorrow. Had to remove gas tank and other parts in the engine. I also did some cleaning on the hull.
    4/2/10 - Connected a lawnmower battery to the good ski. Engine turns over but sounds rough. MFD (multi-function display) does not come on. Removed old handle bar grips. Removed MFD from Parts Ski.
    4/1/10 - Swapped "hoods" from the bad ski to the good ski. This was done to replace the broken hood latch. Located front of the jet ski.
    3/30/10 - Cleaned up most of the oil all on the inside. Nasty.

    Parts Needed:
    -Handle Bar Grips
    -Carburetor gaskets
    -New Battery
    -An assortment of new hoses and lines (dry-rotted)
    -Fuel filters
    -Hull Drain Plug (dry-rotted)
    *List updated when parts are needed*


    Note:Attached are some more pictures of the ski's and some pics of the good ski's engine. Also I have attached a picture of a broken off oil hose attachment (pics of the part on my computer desk). What can I do to replace this? I don't have all the parts for the normal air intake.

    you just need to get the oil nipple for the broke one. it happened to me about a week ago. grab it with a pair of vise grips and turn and then start to turn and pull and it will come out.

    Thanks for the quick reply dirt dude! Where can I purchase a replacement?

    Also I dont have the flame arrestor or gasket for the air inlet set up. Is there an alternative part(s)/solution(s) for fixing that part of the installation?

    Thanks so much!
    Andrew

    According to this diagram (1992-1995 Clymers Polaris shop manual, page 177, Chapter 6 [FUEL SYSTEM]) I am missing #4 and #5.

    1. Air Inlet = good
    2. Clamp = good

    3. Cover = cracked/damaged
    4. Flame arrestor = missing
    5. Gasket = missing
    6. Silencer housing = good
    7. Fuel Pump = good
    8. Pump Mount = good

    9. Carburetor gaskets = missing
    10. Carburetors = good

    I hope this make everything clear lol

    Thank you! That is great information to have indeed. I noticed that you can put those parts in a "shopping cart," but can u purchase them? OR is that only up for reference?

    Thanks K447!

    You cannot buy parts directly from Polaris Industries.

    What you do is use them to collect the part numbers you need, then go shopping at one of the online Polaris parts OEM sources.

    Or call one of the shops that supports the forum

    Parts

    I'm pretty sure I got the parts you are looking for. At least the #3,#4,#5. I do not have the carb gasket though. I'll check later today and let you know if I got them.

    Welcome to the Hulk!

    You can try these guys for online purhcases. I'm sure there are more places and someone will chime in.
