    what happened to my ski?

    I was out the other day and my ski suddenly stopped and went into almost like an idle speed and the motor sounded like a chainsaw almost like to gears grinding off of each other. My buddy's I was with said it was the motor mounts but I'm afraid its worse. My motor isn't blown is it? It didn't take on any water and was able to be towed back. Any ideas?

    I'm sure someone on here in the Tampa area would be more than willing to take a listen to it for you! Could be a ton of stuff and not the engine.

    What would you guess it could be obviously without hearing it like a few examples. Could a blown motor sound like that? That? Thanks a lot man

    Super Charger comes to mind first, check the pump also!

    Will it still turn over? Pull the plugs and check compression.

    Without being able to see or listen I would suggest pulling the plugs and spinning the engine while listening for unusual noise. You might be able to pinpoint something knocking or grinding since thats how you described it. Listen carefully near the SC area. Be sure to remove the coils and plugs, the engine will spin free...
