    New to the board - Chk these pics out of my SL750 used to be good motor.

    So I've gotten tons of info off of this board and successfully completed a motor swap today.

    This is what happened to my motor Memorial day weekend. I forgot to put the drain plug in and went zipping around. I'm guessing I hydro locked it. I got it back on the trailer and got it started again but it was sounding rough. Real rough and then POP!!

    1st thing I saw when I pulled the motor.





    Then I pulled the reeds and saw this. FUBAR...




    Whats left of it.

    It sucks when we do something so simple that causes a big problem like that. On the plus side you learn never to go out without checking the drain plug again and also how everything works by doing a motor swap.

    You can upgrade the drain plugs to the captive type used on the newer models.

    Check my signature links for info on a SeaDoo drain plug with an internal one way check valve. Will not allow the hull to flood even if the cap is left off.

    Thats the worst grenading Iv'e ever seen with a fugi motor. Holy smokes. Total destruction. Well at least you didn't fall into the category of: Why doesn't my ski start? (try the lanyard!) stories we have heard. Sorry to hear about this. Glad that you got it up and running again.. Good Job! Keep em alive!.

    1 other idea----If your ever riding and feel the ski surging back and forth and acting like its off balance, your taking on water. Hit the bilge immediately and keep the ski balanced. Slowly stop and pop the seat off and check. Subbing the front end a lot playing can let water in. been there done that a few times.

    Blue fish---- GOOD ONE! Hahahaaha
