    1996 SLT 780; It looks like my baby is going up for sale

    http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=478887688801925&notif_t=video_proc essed

    Hey guys;

    I haven't been around for awhile. I've been busy starting a new business and my ski has not seen much action since. I only got out a few times last season and not at all this season.

    In the attached video you will see that she fired right up the first time I got a chance to even take the cover off on 8/17/12. The carbs have not been rebuilt this season because I never went out, but it was only out three times last season. It has been properly maintained and winterized.

    The wear ring installed currently has a blister on it and you guys with experience will hear the impeller catch it when I start it and shut it down. However, I do have an entire stainless steel pump assembly that will go with it as well as impellers, shafts, bearings, MFD, etc.

    I took pictures of all that I have I just have to upload them from the camera. I wanted to give you guys a shot at it first before it goes on Craigslist or Ebay because you were so much help to me when I started out with it.

    Sad to see it go but I'm not getting any use out of it anymore and you will.

    +1 on both counts.

    Do drop in from time to time, even if you don't have a ski!

    Thanks guys. I'm sure it will go fast. I just threw it up here first because I know some of you are always looking for something. I could probably make as much money for the extra parts as I will on the ski and the trailer but I figured it's better off just to give it all up as a package deal to the new owner. Gonna miss it. It ran really well the few times I had it out last year. Since I was in salt water all three times I didn't even bother throwing in the stainless ring and stator. The Solas impeller in there right now isn't getting any damage catching that little blister and didn't cause any problems in the water. Kevin is probably pissed to hear that because he found the SS setup for me.

    TC, I couldn't be mad at anyrthing. You needed something and I helped you find it. That's all.

    I'm really mad that you didn't get out on it this year. They are ALOT of fun.....
