    Crank seals? Need input

    Hey everyone, I have a 1994 SPX that runs like a bat out of hell but when it sits during the off seaon, the crankcase gets oil in it. I blow it out, it runs fine all season no oil, then when it sits for 8-9 months, it gets oil in it. Its a clean ski with low hours that I got for a good deal. It has just sat for years at a time before I got it.

    What should I do?

    Blow the oil out each year and ride the crap out of it. What have you got to loose. The only way to fix it is to rebuild it so ride it till it dies and then fix it.

    You might leave oil cap loose if stored indoors to keep any pressure from building up when the weather is warm.

    When stored for the winter pinch the oil lines to the pump and RV cavity to stop the oil flow. Don't forget to remove them in the spring or you will be rebuilding sooner rather than later.
