Well it happened.
After all of my preperation of replacing fuel lines, fuel pump w/ triple outlet, New fuel filters, New plugs, checked pop off, checked crank position.
I was trucking across beautiful Shoal Bay and just lost power. ........Hole in center piston.
In the process of getting new piston but is there anything I overlooked?

Did you clean or rebuild the carbs?

I did the same thing when I first started. Carbs, fuel pump, the whole nine. Then popped a hole in a piston in short order.

The carbs were supossed to be rebuilt by the previous owner before I got it but I cant say for sure.

I was reading about the process of varying throttle after work and I did not do that. could be the problem.

I don't think I'm going to put anymore money into this ski. I need/Want a bigger one so I think I'm going to put it on the auction block.

maybe no return restriction after replacing the fuel lines??

Return restrictor is there, I thinking the carbs were not rebuilt like I was told. Reason I'm thinking that is I looked at it a little while ago and the paint on the screws is still sealed.
