HEY guys. I just got back from taking my 8 yr old daughter out and we had a blast. I'd say, Another couple of hours tweaking and she's as good as new. found a loose wire, handlebars need adjusting, and need to go ahead and buy new seals for the lid.
640 runs pretty quick. I wasn't expecting that.
All in all, Don't think I'd paint another one, but heck a good buff job and they look good as new!
Premix all the way!
I noticed that the prop shaft gets REALLY hot. I think it's the friction from the water; is that correct? I mean, the motor is running a good temp and it's cool in the engine compartment, so that's the only reason I can see the shaft getting hot. I'll have to check the fluid again and make sure it's ok, but how much fluid is the housing supposed to take? I read "online" and I have common sense, so it seemed an appropriate amount.

holy cow, if I spend any money it's gonna be on a supercharged or turbocharged one. It already has like 155lbs of compression on both cyls, and I modified the grate. I'm dangerous when I get around a fabrication shop and a welder...
This ski is REALLY squirly.
I don't mind it though.
I have to go 1/2 speed in rough water, just doesn't seem heavy enough, like it won't cut through the wake? I dunno, I've never owned own before, so never got technical like this. That's why I bought this. To learn.
I checked alignment, The rubber piece doesn't get real hot, so I'm pretty sure it's close. I tested all shims and locations and got it ideal. If I was going to get serious I'd buy an alignment tool, or make one.
Where would I notice the most heat?
(I should probably not just reach down and grab the shaft after hauling ass for over two miles anyway..... duh)
