    Wet Jet Anyone?

    I just recently picked up a Wet Jet Duo 300 ... I've read some of them had Yamaha 701 engines. (I hope thats what is in the one i got) So i figured i would post it in here. I don't know much about it. The guy i got it from said it locked up shortly after him leaving the beach. Hes got 4 other ski's so he just sit this one out back. He said it was the fastest of all his other ski's and always the best ski he had.

    Its not much of a looker. And i don't really need a Jet ski. I just like working on things. And i'm on the water 3-5 times a weeek in my boat

    Any information anyone can tell me i'm all ears.

    I have not even pulled the seat off yet.




    Thanks!

    I get some of these in now and then..I haven't seen one without a Yamaha engine in it yet.... It's a so-so implementation back in the day when third parties were building skis.

    From what i've read some have a engine called a "brute" And i guess there junk. (Just from what i've read)

    Do you know any links where i could get parts for this ski, as in engine parts. (Fingers crossed that it is in fact a yamie engine)

    I have a customer with the almost exact ski... Mastercraft built the hull, and a Yami motor.

    I just ordered some parts for him... i'll have to find the website

    Thanks WFO!

    I don't know much about these things. I still need to learn how/if you can run them on the hose.(Assuming i'll get this running lol)

    Hopefully thursday-friday i'll be able to get some wrenching done on this. I'm also working on a Polaris 800DI for the original owner of this ski.

    I've been looking up engine parts for this wet jet seems like its pretty cheap to do a complete engine build. I really hope my crank checks out.

    Any links you run across post them . I still need to do some reading about basic Jet ski maintenance and starting and running procedures.
