Where did the other half of my power valve go?
Well Happy Fourth of July to me. Doh! Was out filling the ski up getting ready to go out. Cleaned the siphon screen again. Yep. dirty after 1 ride.
Going thru the engine compartment and notice a power valve.stuck open. Hmmmm. Better investigate that further.
Was the ski running ok last time out? Seemed.to have power. No noticable change anyway.
Hmm. Look a lottle further and the valve won't move. Interesting. Only been a few tanks be rween cleanings on the valves.
I unscrew the valve and base and I have half a valve left. Ouch. That hurts.
The piston is chipped and probably the ring too. Bore looks ok.
Basically need a piston,ring, valve assembly and gaskets. That's a bummer.
Although, I do have that brand New race motor here and could just swap the engines.
I have the racing cdi for it. Put that in too. I can't swap a valve off the 1 because they are different valves in it. I tries it. Won't fit
So......the issue is.....where did that half piece of valve go? In the pipe? Probably.... sounds like a project to me.

Its not dirt. Its 2-stroke oil covering the screen. The hull is clean inside. Washed it out last time for half hour getting tiny bits out. Must of been the last little bit of gunk got caught . Washed right off. No debris on it.

Well, might as well.get wrenching huh? Lol. Where's my beer! Grab a wrench! Let's.do this. This.new motor might actually haul ass. The current one has 110 psi. Low. Needs to be gone thru. It was used before.anyways. i will start a project thread shortly.
