    leaking rave valves and loss of power

    ok so my rave valves r leaking pretty bad and my ski is lacking acceleration, it goes but no like it is suppost to. i know im running really rich fuel so i know the plugs are fouled....i took it up to the lake and when i got there i noticed the oil pump stopped working but i wanted to ride so i said scew it and got the ratio rite out and premixed the gas well after about 10 mins i noticed alot of excessive smoke and i took a look and the oil pump was working ...i guess i didnt get all the bubbles out of the main oil line when i put the engine back in. i took it back out the day after that and topped off the gas tank with strait gas so it was diluted alot and cleaned the spark plugs but it still lacks take off and i noticed alot of leakage around the rave valves and i know they control exhaust back pressure so could this have something to do with it? i cleaned the recently and replaced the gaskets also.....would new bellows, o-rings, and gaskets stop this leak?

    Anyone else get a headache from reading this???

    I would flush your fuel, take the raves out and give them a good cleaning with new gaskets and o-rings and then see what it does.

    Lol Joe....

    I only read title, I have short attention span

    Looks like the green boot inside rave maybe torn or your gaskets shot where it bolts on...
