Sea Doo Newbie, Need some help Please see picts... New purchase for me...
I just got the 04 GTX SC, got it for $2K, so not complaining that much, all cylinders are at about 150 PSI and according the the previous owner the SC was rebuilt 20hrs ago, I think I did the testing correctly basically tried to spin the sc and it did not spin at all, is this a good sign, it did however had a small little play if I tried to move each side, I assume this is normal?
While looking at the machine I noticed this black square loose on the floor, what in the world is this? where these it go? see image..
This definetly needs some TLC, I plan on changing all these washers that are oxidation, also the SC is all peeled off is this a normal thing?
Thanks for the input

That black thing is the bailer pickup and should be held down at the rear of the hull by a stainless clip. I think that's the clip in the last pic although it looks all bent out of shape.
My buddy has an earlier SC ski that had a hard life in salt water and his supercharger looks a lot worse than yours. It should not affect the way it runs just looks crappy.

Yes the bailer tube pickup should be in the rear of the ski but the tubes should be held up high to make the bailer system work properly.
Nice score for 2k.
If I was you I'd pull the s/c and check the washers to make sure they were changed out with the newer metal ones.
There is a lot of info on this site about pulling a s/c.

Thanks, is there a pict somewhere to see how the bailers tubs go? just want to be sure I do it right.
Ill take that SC and paint it while I am at it to.
Machine has 104 hours only, not too shabby.

Good price on it and you will learn a lot from this site and working on it yourself. The tubes go up towards grab handle and will have an elbow that brings tubes back down and out the pump support. All I can say is I'm so glad I don't have to deal with salt water

Buy low and ride the shit out of it.....

He was asking $3.2, ended in $2.5, but when i got the title he never transferrred it to his name so it had the price he paid in 2009, told him i had to pay taxes on that amont then dropped another $400..
i cleaned the bildge yesteraday now it looks like new, gotta replace some clamps that are oxidated and mats that I ordered, seat might need a new cover but can stay as if for now.
