    Why you need to get the water out of you ski ASAP

    I bought this ski and was told the motor was in A1 shape guess not!!

    Does anyone make oversized pistons?
    Can this block be fixed?

    It will need to be line bored and sleeved. I tried a 460 that looked fine. 45 mins of run time proved fatal to rings and cylinder walls. Price sleeving and go as big a bore as possible.

    I was told by a motor builder that if you see moisture(condensation) on the outside of the motor that chances are it will look the same on the inside. That is why you have to let them breathe by opening the engine compartment when not in use.

    Believe it or not the only thing that is a little questionable is the cam and the cylinder head but I think the head is salvagable.
