    Welcome Cody.

    Create a separate thread for one of your two machines, and keep the details about the other machine in this thread. It is easier to keep track of what is what if there is only one machine per thread

    Diagnostics for the Ficht fuel injected engine are very different from the carburetor engine.

    Are these machines new to you?

    What diagnostics have you done so far?

    I have had the ski sence July .
    When I bought it, it started but then I put it in the water and then it wouldn't start
    I put in a new starter bendix and clean the carbs.
    Then it need that part behind the starter I had a guy in town do that.
    Last I put a new 1st carb the one with the fuel exculator . It finally ran but not 100%. I winterized it and now it won't run .
    It starts then idles hight and smokes a lot . In the water it revs then dies?

    This would the Virage TX, correct?

    This machine has never worked properly for you, correct?

    How were the carbs cleaned? Was a carb rebuild kit used for each carb? OEM carb kits?

    What was the part behind the starter, that was replaced?

    When cranking the engine, check the battery voltage using a multi-meter.
    What is the battery voltage while the engine is cranking, with all spark plugs in place?

    When you cleaned the carbs did you actually remove and disassemble them to clean them?
