    Blown head gaskets on 15f's is extremely rare.

    I would check for flow in the following points.

    Stator cooler. oil cooler. brass fittings on ex pipe. and the brass fittings that empty into the front of the waterbox.

    Thank you I will do that the other reason I thought about head gasket is it is very hard to start once it has been running. I am going to check compression today just to make sure. Thanks again. Will let you know

    You probably have some kelp or some kind of blockage plugging water intake in the pump. Mine has done this a few times. One time I stopped the ski and then I nailed throttle and whatever it was was gone. One time had to tow in. Got home and ran the ski on the hose and it cleared out. And once I found stuff in the pump from back side plugging water intake area on the pump.
    +1 on the head gasket. Very rare unless some one worked on your ski and didn't torque/tighten correctly. Let us know what you find.

    Thank you sir. Have done that before...Err, Uh, well... Not on purpose. LOL Put ski in one day and water running down from the hood. I was worried about water in the hull. Nada.

    You were told correctly as this is a symptom. While on the hose it likely doesn't do the same thing and the pisser pisses properly. That can seemingly throw a curve ball to some.

    A compression check may or may not tell anything since combustion pressure is much higher and is where the thing first starts leaking gas and heat into the water jacket.
