This is not happening!!!!
No hydro drags for me for this weekend!! SUCK !! After a nice tuning ride this past Sunday and the ski running very strong the nightmare happened... Some how my cylinders got full of water, I'm clue less at what could of happen. The ski was fine no signs of problems but when I got home didn't want to start. I just put this engine together after a full rebuild. Running open loop with the restrictor washer drilled to 11mm, could of this cause a head gasket failure? Any ideas on what could of happen?

head gasket. Were you in salt? Are you running head studs with OEM gasket like you should be?

How much water? Cracked cylinder?

Might be a bad Intercooler

You probably blew out the intercooler when you drilled out the restrictor. The pump can put out a lot of pressure; that is the reason for the restrictor!

Not lot of water but enough to foul the plugs. I did a compression test and is ok cyl1 150, cyl2 150, cyl3 148. I got a question, if I drove the ski on the trailer with the water box full of water could the water rush back to the cyl? I have a +8 TDR.
