    Loosing The Will To Live


    Im now at the wits end of owning my ski

    Ive melted another piston this weekend this time the middle one, going along 45mph on the screen going great guns and then it dieded, just suddenly died with no warning it just cut out

    Got it back to sure checked the cylinders and ive now found the centre piston has melted, ive caught it earlier than the first one, and both rings are intact

    What would of caused it to happen this time?

    One person suggested its because the new cylinder and piston was creating a 150 compression and the 135 out of the rear 2 cylinders

    Im really tempted to throw the towl in, im guessing im gonna need new gasket set again for the zaust manifold etc as well as the cylinder heads

    What would be causing this, i could understand if it was the same piston/ cylinder but its not

    Im really tempted just to get a waveruner fxho and call it a day with this ski
