    That's the thing it has trim and all that works like new never had any problems but my seadoo now it's down for a top end rebuild it was loosing compression. I got the ski from original owner. It sat 5 years and all i did was clean and rebuild carbs.

    Um, did you mean to say your Polaris has been the most trouble-free PWC you have owned?

    Glad to hear that. HOWEVER.......

    You just gave her the "kiss of death" now that you said that.

    May want to consider the triple outlet fuel pump, or rebuild the stocker just because of age.

    Keep the fuel and oil systems maintained, and it should stay that way.

    Why do you keep suggesting people go buy stuff???

    He's happy with what he has. (reason he started this thread)

    What's wrong with the stock parts?

    Without knowing his riding conditions why should he replace parts?

    Yea, that was the first thing i did when I learned about that here was replace the stock pump with the three outlet. And hitting 42 I have had all the fast machines this one is among my best for the way I like fast enough but also slow to enjoy the views. You get to my age and you slow down and take in all that's around you and enjoy the time. Had all the fast when i was younger.

    Fuel system maintenance is important, but so is the oil injection system.

    Don't let an old oil line crack or split from age and unexpectedly kill off a cylinder from lack of lubrication. If you have not done so yet, consider replacing all the oil lines and the oil filter.

    Also check the fuel filler cap and neck for hairline cracks, and make sure the sealing ring is still good. You can upgrade to a newer style fuel filler neck and cap if you find a problem.

    Another area that is often worth investigating is the jet pump. It is not that hard to get the pump off the hull. Then you can inspect the pump and drive shaft seals, bearings, and splines.
    How to remove and re-install the Polaris 148mm jet pump

    These Polaris jet pumps often go for a long time without any trouble or much maintenance, but once water starts to get past the seals and into the bearings it can fail without much warning. Much less expensive to check, and if need be, replace jet pump bearings and seals before a failure causes major damage and/or leaves you stranded on the water.

    The best thing you can do with these old PWC (not just Polaris) is to inspect them thoroughly from end to end, top to bottom. The only thing that makes them reliable is the attention, inspection and maintenance that you actually do.

    Many of the 18 year old parts on your 1993 Polaris still have plenty of life left in them, but that doesn't mean they don't need attention to verify they are lubricated, tight, not corroding, and actually working the way they should.

    Take care of it, and it can last a long time

    Lots of guys around here riding that are older than that

    I suspect 42 is somewhere in the middle of the pack, age-wise.
