Water In Hull
1994 Polaris SL750
Ok Iíve been on a 6 month journey to get this thing running again and I can see light at the end of the tunnel, It now has a new motor, v-force reeds, engine aligned, rebuilt carbs and gallons of my sweat and blood in it. last problem is WATER IN THE HULL. Went out yesterday blew out my siphon lines before we went out, ran about 30 mins... not much water ran another 30 mins... about an inch in it, looked after an hour and it was almost up to the top of the driveshaft. got it out pulled the drain plug and it looked like I was trying to take the lake with me. Iíve filled it up and it didnít show any leaks, and the through hull being is full of grease and the engine is lined up.

Check your pitot tube for your speedometer connection right under the drive shaft seal. That tube might have popped off.

Yup checked it not cracked or dissconnected.... I was hoping it would be that easy

check your water rail on top of the heads as you run the engine in the water. the small water rail gaskets could be leaking spraying water and filling the hull when you take it out. and filling the hull with water, it wont show the leak because theres no pressure on the gaskets or rail , you would only see the leak if it was running and that would fill the hull as you ride. I had it happen to me on my sl750. the rail was warped a lil and it didn't seal good with the gaskets on it so I doubled them up and it worked out ok.. should get a new non warped water rail to really fix it though..

Yeah, I was going to say run it with the seat off and see if there is any water spraying in somewhere.
