    My SLTX is still a dog....and I don't know what else to look at.

    On my '96 SLTX, I have put in a new/rebuilt crank along with .50 over 009 jugs and platinum pistons along with a new updated stator kit. It also had a brand new impeller/stator/wear ring when I got it.

    The first time I took it out after doing a break-in, it seemed really sluggish.

    I had replaced the original carb with a '97 SL1050 carb. One member here said that it not having an accel. pump would make it slow out of the hole....so I picked up a set of carbs with an accel pump. Still no change. This weekend it wouldn't even get on plane and wouldn't break 4,000 RPM.

    I'm using all 3022050 domes, which isn't a true 1050 setup, but should just be a little higher compression than the '96.

    Today I pulled the domes and checked index. I went as far as to use a dial indicator to get perfect TDC. Index was perfect.

    Cliff's:
    -New crank
    -New pistons
    -New carbs
    -New ignition
    -New complete pump assembly
    -3022050 domes
    -Index perfect
    -No plane/4,000rmp max


    Tomorrow I'm going to pull the pipe and carbs and check compression and then probably check the reeds but I don't anticipate finding any issues there.


    What the hell else can I look at? This is pretty much a brand new boat. I'm lost.

    Edit: Awesome spelling mistake in my title. *My* Yeah.

    Did you check/test the timing when you put the new ignition kit in?

    4000 is pretty close to the 'Limiter"

    Is the MFD working ? Unplug the Grey wire on the CDI, just to eliminate the limiter for testing.

    What part # on the impeller ?

    MFD works. I was reading some old threads last night...I need to try running it without the MFD.


    Impeller is 5131366, which is correct for the '96 SLTX.
