    If you do need the special tools, Give Eric a call at 424 6009, he has everything needed.

    Thanks for Heads up JR, no Pun intended. found, and got an almost brand new lookin manifold on ebay, guy in central florida had one. Cheap too.
    Just waiting on Gaskets from E Toledo Honda. Leaving for lobster season open in the Keys wed, but this ski won't be making the trip. So it will be sitting
    for a week til I get back.


    BTW, since it will be sitting waiting for my return.
    Question, I have got some Sea Foam, and cheap 5-40 oil to run through the motor to deal with the moisture and water in the motor.
    Have drained it and wondering if this will take care of the water entering the engine. I will of course be changing it again, once I have it back
    together, with a new filter and synthetic.

    Be sure to look at your oil lines under the engine while you have it lifted up, they corrode quickly.

    Sure, he's a great guy. Tell him to steer clear of any marginal lobsters, a guy on Screamandfly.com just went to prison for 18 months and had his house/car/boat confiscated for undersized lobsters.
    I just ordered a spare manifold off of ebay and a set of oil lines to keep as hot-spares since only 2 of my 3 maifolds have been replaced so far.

    Well I picked up a great manifold, ski only had 41 hours on it. got most of the gaskets except 1, on back order. Managed to get lobsters every night for dinner while we were there, yum yum. picture of the lobster slaying sled set up.

Looks like I am going to have to update my parts list with Toledo Honda again. JR, guess i will need to be looking into your friend to get the tools to remove the cams and head. Any advice on the removeal and re install you can give would be greatly appreciated. thanks
