    Engine flush after SC failure

    Hey guys I have searched the site and do not see any good guides on how to pull the engine and flush the motor after a ceramic washer failure. Do I have to completely tear down the motor? I pulled the oil filter and do not see any signs of the washers.

    Dude screwed me on craigs and will not return my calls so I am forced to fix it rather than shove it up his ass. I am new to the supercharged world of seadoo's and already bought a sc rebuild kit but looks like I will be shopping for more.

    Man sorry bout that...educate yourself carefully on these motors, The tolerances are nil and the torque specs and sequence are critical on these 4Tecs...Pretty much they either run OR blow-up

    What ski and how much did you pay if you don't mind saying? Was it priced to reflect needing work? If not, guess no test ride?

    It's not a job for a beginner to fix.
    If they washers are gone its time to crack the cases open and clean and inspect everthing inside.
    I've seen it done and its a lot of time and $$$$

    Good luck!

    Normally all the ceramic bits and needle bearings cause all sorts of issue;s. They stress the Timming chain as of coarse the chain gear and chain have to mash it all up. Then a bunch of the ceramic gets past the oil screens and creat a pitted mess on both oil pumps.

    SO normally I pull the motor split the cases and change timming chain flush oil galleys and inspect both pumps.

    Its alot of work for a beginer.

    not to mention that one brain fart and you have a really really expensive doorstop.

    You'll find that taking apart an ipad far easier.


    my rant on craigs list and other used ski deals......


    used boat deals from private parties are always "where is as is"..even if you get a "guarantee in writing", collecting on a judgment (assuming it every gets that far) is a whole other issue

    I often tell buyers that if I had x ray vision and skills like Kreskin, i'd be partnered up with david copperfield) and offer full money back warranties.

    There is always substantial risk buying a used jetski, just assume you're going to be dropping anywhere form 10-25% of the purchase price on "the unexpected" within a few months of ownership.

    Make offers accordingly.

    When I bought my 91 ford pickup a bunch of years ago I lowballed a bit and then said to the guy...

    "here's half of $200 (literally I cut a bunch of 20's in half)...if I go a month without feeling I need to call you over this truck, you can have the other half..If I do call you..I get the other half back.

    He took the deal.

    He got the money

    He knew the truck was good.

    He turned out to be right.
