    What the heck is this??

    Look what I found, is this what I think it is? I bought this ski with 60 hrs and haven't had any issues. Click image for larger version.

    That's what I think, but it must of happened before I bought the ski 3 years ago!! I looked all over the engine for other signs but I can't find anything else...

    a big hit to your wallet. Just had to pull the engine to fix/upgrade. Looks like your washers got intimate with your block. Mine held up a little better though

    OUCH!!!
    The oil screens on the oil pumps probably are holding other pieces of the ceramic boom..
    Now you've got some thinking to do..
    Ride and fix when it booms or pull the motor and fix now..

    I'd pull it now. Make sure they actually replace the oil pumps with the newer version, flush everything and get the ceramics out. You'd hate to have a half ass job done, rebuild her and have a major engine failure. Nows a good time for an X charger or new wheel lol

    Is crazy that I been running the ski for 3 years like this! The ski was going 85mph
    Before I had a blown head gasket, pulled engine to do inspection of head, block and pistons
    and found this... my compression was at 128lb all three cylinders.
    Basically this happend to the previous owner!
