    Hey guys, well go figure. Out in the Chesapeake Bay today and in that huge amout of water and I was not close to the shore either, I sucked up a pinecone I had to idle back to the dock and it took me almost 2hrs. Tried freeing it out in the bay, but with the waves could not do it and I was not about to flip it out there so I idled in. My questions are, idleing that long with and occasionally going up to 2300 rpm, would that of caused any damage to the ski (temp stayed 18. Next question, I had to remove my intake grate to get the pinecone out (no wearring damage that I could see) what is the torque and what type of loc-tite should I use on the intake grate bolts. Thanks everyone!!!

    I think your just fine, and the torque is around 24 ft-lbs (not positive), Loctite Blue 242. I will check my shop manual tomorrow for you, I don't have it with me right now. I had to replace my wear ring for a very similar reason recently. The next time you order oil filters or other misc stuff I would get a spare wear ring for the future.

    Thanks so much for the information. I just wasnt sure about idleing the motor for that about of time. I tried to bump up the rev's slightly, but everything ran fine, so it seemed. Going to put the grate back on today and hit the water. Thanks again.

    Got the grate back on and all torqued up. I must say, the front one had me a little worried until i finally got the clip on the tq wrench...

    DO NOT use lock tite on the front bolt. Use silicone. That bolt goes through the hull. There is only a brass thread that is inserted in the fiberglass.
