    Should I use locktite?

    '92 750ss. It is my first ski. Was given to me by a friend. Supposedly ran fine but would fill with water. I tinkered with it a bit and found the exhaust union to have a gaping hole in it. I fixed that and was wondering If i should use thead locker on reassembly

    Did you fix the cause of the hole? I.e., it's not getting enough water flow through it to cool it.

    Use blue LocTite.

    Yes, was a massive failure of the union. I put a new one in and she runs great. She just vibrates the bolts loose.

    What Steve was saying is that the hole was caused by something did you fix the reason the coupler got a hole in it. For high vibration you can use blue loctite or RTV (which is what I use on almost everything)

    Yes, was very poor maintenance on a ski used mainly in salt water. Put a new union, muffler and water box and that seems to have it licked.

    You are very smart. I have question. If the spark plugs are pulled from my STX-15. The power is on and the lanyard key is attached. I push the start button and nothing happens. Is that normal? The battery is fully charged.
