    Waveventure 1100 install tips

    I am about ready to install the engine in my 1996 Waveventure 1100 and I have a few questions I hope you can help with? What can I install before dropping the engine in the ski? Can I leave the exhaust on? Can I install the engine mount plates? What about the intake manifold? I have already installed the flywheel cover and PTO.

    I install with exhaust manifold on and do the intake after dropping the motor in. The engine mounting plates have to be on to install the motor in the hull. do you have a manual? doing this kind of work without one is not recommended.

    You can install the engine as a complete assembly just pull the 4 bolts on the cowl area on the front and remove the fuel tank then you put the motor in thru the from it take 20 minutes to do vie done 100s this way and saved lots of time.

    I do not have a manual but I am using the instructions from SBT. I had to remove the engine mount plates to get it out but I was doing it alone and it was heavy. I plan to use something to lower it in. The hole in the hull looks too small to drop it in with the engine plates installed.

    Like I said just pull the front of the ski off with the 4 12mm bolts holding it on then the top comes off then pull the fuel tank and the engine slips right thru then slide it too the motor mounts.
