    The mechanic said I then have to fine tune the ski that's we're I am lost I was wondering if anyone could help with the screws from seated and how many turns on each screw??

    Sorry to sound stupid but I just ain't 100% sure about carbs

    what jetting do you have in the carbs? How were the carbs modified-- pumps still working properly and timed correctly? Have all your fuel lines been replaced-- selector switch bypassed, replaced or atleast cleaned out? Internal carb filters cleaned, new check valves on the fuel pump body? New sediment bowl assemblly is highly recommended or atleast clean the filter and pressure test the bowl-- should easily hold 25 psi for 10 minutues. What design solas impeller and what pitch? How many rpm will the ski currently run on a quick full throttle 5 second or so run? What was the piston to cylinder clearance set at? Were the rave blades clearanced for the over bore?

    Why was the motor rebuilt and how did it run before it was rebuilt-- any other changes made to your setup at the time of "rebuild"?

    If you have aftermarket air filters you will require larger jets so as to give you the correct fuel/air ratio for a proper running engine.Its a good idea if you have the grey tempo fuel lines to remove them totally as they rot from the inside out and eventually block the carbs and then lean seize your engine from not enough fuel .
    If you have the accelerator pumps working I would use :
    87.5 low speeds adjuster screws open 1.5 turns
    167.5 highs closed
    2.0mm N/Seat with 20psi pop off.I use the black 80 gram spring usually gives me 20 psi

    If you have the accelerator pumps deactivated
    All of the above except the lows are 95 open 1.5 turns.

    This is a safe jetting setting that will get your revs up about 6950 -7000 depending upon the pitch of your impeller.
    I use 165 on my personal skis .
