Thread: whats wrong ?

  1. #1

    whats wrong ?

    I had a new impeller installed on my ski today and went straight to the lake . First the ski didnt fire . Jumped it and it fired . Got going and the temp buzzer and light went off . Stopped the engine towed it in and opened the cover . Damn thing was full of water . Drained the water and now when i hit the starter in makes a clicking sound . Battery light on dash is still on . change batteries and light is gone but still making clicking sound . Anyone got a ideal what the problem could be ?

    Sounds like the hose to the engine was left off when the pump was reinstalled and now your engine is full of water. Look at the hose from the pump to the engine. While your at it check the bailer hoses also. If the Ski in Question is your avatar then that is probably what happened. You give almost no info on ski type

    did you sink it? you may have hydro locked the engine. pull the plugs and see if it cranks. otherwise you may have a weak battery

    sounds like a weak battery. put it on the charger for a couple hours and it should start. Also check the rear electrical box and make sure it is not full of water.
