    1996 Polaris 700 750 900 or 1050?

    I got this Jet Ski in a trade and have no idea what model I have. I know its a 1996 Polaris and the girl told me the mechanic said it needs a CDI Box and Battery.
    It has a lot of upgrades!

    The CDI Box doesn't really match anything I've looked up but maybe someone can help me figure out which CDI Box I need to get.

    I currently have a CDI Box with these model numbers:
    Made In Germany
    Part No 2871974 Igniter
    PVL 105 553.03 Ignition Coil Box
    PN 4040068 Terminal Board

    Can someone tell me what Model Polaris I have 700 750 900 or 1050 and what CDI Box I need?

    Ok, so I found another part number on the Engine which makes me think it's a 1997 Polaris SL 1050 according to the Specs.

    Here is what is on the Engine on the front end by the handle bars.

    Part No. WC105TCSP02

    Can someone confirm this?

    Welcome to The Hulk!

    You have a hodge-podge I've never seen before-

    Looks like a 92-94 hull
    900/1050 domestic motor from a newer ski (96+)
    Programmable CDI
    Fiberglass work (Relocated gas fill)


    Love to see more detailed pictures of how the engine is mounted in that hull.

    That CDI with the three exposed chips is not stock. Might have been a racing CDI or a prototype variation.

    Since there has been water and corrosion inside the electrical box, the CDI may be internally corroded/damaged.

    It would almost certainly be what we call an 'original' generation of the ignition system for the red domestic engines, known as Gen I.

    Later on Polaris released an Ignition System Update Kit which is more reliable. Even without water damage the Gen I and Gen II ignitions are known to fail, often in the magneto stator.

    Here are more more pics. I need to find another CDI that works with it. I'm not sure if I find one for a 750 that will work with the 1050?

    You are going to need to read up on the basics regarding Polaris watercraft.

    The blue Fuji engines are completely different from the red 'domestic' engines. Different ignition, different internals, etc.

    You have what appears to be a mutt, a mixture of stuff from different models and years. Figure out what you have, then what you want to do with it.

    If the engine is good, you have the possibility of pulling the engine and installing it in a stock 'domestic engine' hull.

    Or you can develop a complete understanding of the creation you have and build it up into an operational watercraft.

    My signature links, and the FAQ and Tech sections on Greenhulk, should provide plenty of reading material to get you oriented.

    Im sure it would be a quick ski if running...You can do it but you will need help. You came to the right place. Im not sure if that would be called a "Conversion" ski or not.
    I would check the compression before I did anything else. You need to find out what you are getting into.

    Ok, I know what Engine I have based on the Part No., it's a 97 Polaris SL 1050.
    I know the CDI Box Part No.'s
    How do I find out what make and year the Hull is? Where is the part no for that?

    I'm willing to test this thing out to see what I've got. If I can get it running and/or keep it or make a decent profit it will be worth it or I'll part it out.

    the Hull serial number is on the rear of the ski (on the top by the traction mat)? If memory serves me.

    The hull # ( HIN ) might give more clues as to what model it started life as.
    To me it looks like a 96 900, that had a 97 fuel tank installed-with some custom body work at the fill opening. Not sure why they would not cover the old opening.

    It is deffinetly a domestice engine (900-1050-1200 ) Yes that number on the front cover is from a 97 1050. But that cover comes off and will fit the other engines. Best way to tell,would be to pull off one of the heads-if it has stock heads,that will tell something. You probably want to do this anyway,or at least a compression test to see what octane fuel to run.

    The ign coil, I'm pretty sure is from the early 900's-might have a different firing order than 1050's. A good look/pic of the plug wires would tell.

    But yeah, the 900 and 1050 used pretty much the same CDI ( 4060137-4060170-4060180)
    Judgeing by the condition of the wiring, I would test the CDI / stator first.

    The CDI you have is pretty cool,you can change timing curves by changing those 3 chips,it looks like the writing on the chips is silver- which I'm pretty sure is the mildest curve,they called it the "recreational curve" timing was set at 25deg
