Fast Flow Fuel Lines Can't Take The HEAT when Jetworks ball stuck. Delrin ball option
This is the second time my PTO water feed hose to the stinger has burned a hole in it right at the fitting. The first time I blew the connecting hose and I though it was operator error as I had a plugged intake.
This time, I had three tanks of gas on it, and puff another hole. I know the intake was clean as I checked it several times and the pissers were, well pissing.
Do you think it's the hose that cannot take the heat when I am going really slow and the jet works valve doesn't open up all the way?
It also seems to be the last one to start "pissing" if you will of the three. Usually it's the mag, ctr, then pto when it gets going.
I pulled it apart and there are no restrictions in the cross from the jet works valve or from the cross to the stinger. Ideas?

Check the ball in your jetworks valve, I launched my pro for the summer yesterday and just riding to my house from the ramp and the collector was steaming hot and my pto stinger hose( also fast flow ) was melted. This morning I pulled the valve to have a look and when I separated it I noticed the ball was all the way down in the stem, kinda like it shrunk this winter and fell down in the stem towards the water manifold. Once I pushed the ball back out and put it back together the right way it works well again.
My pissers are also weak at low speeds and work the same as yours.
Ps beerdart, if your reading this, I think I need a delryn ball for my valve, got any left?

I have a couple blue ones and they just unscrew as well...

So let me get this straight then. the pissers should be weak looking normally at idle or just above? Mine are like that too. There not blasting like before in my videos. I have the restrictors in and I'm using a delrin ball too.
So I guess I'm ok then.. I never knew the ball shrinks like that.. sorry to hear Darrin.. I'm sure Beerdart has some.
Boy these skis can be finicky. But when they run, they run gooooooooood.
