Thread: Cylinder Temp?

    Cylinder Temp?

    I just recently got my 96 sl780 back together and running. After running it on the hose for a couple minutes, I noticed that the front cylinder was very hot to the touch while the other two remained much cooler. Is this normal when running the ski on the hose, or do I have a problem? As I have stated before, I am new to pwc's, any help is much appreciated.

    Two minutes on the garden hose using the reverse flush connection is the maximum run time.

    Reverse flush water flow is typically uneven, and often the MAG cylinder does not get proper cooling.

    If you have not already, have a look at my signature links

    Makes sense. I probably didn't even run it a minute. Thanks though... I will have a look at your links.
