Question about overheated 15f
I am looking at a 2008 15f with low hours only 18 I believe the seller said. The seller usually sells broken skis for parts but this one he Had a respectable shop fix the ski (Jet Trendz Tampa FL) They replaced the head gasket and he states the compression is 190 for each cylinder and the shop said motor is ok.
I guess the ski sucked up some sand and caused it to overheat causing the head gasket issue.
He is asking low 4k. The ski has a few scratches but looks pretty clean.
My big worry is the motor was damaged when it overheated. If the compression is 190 for all three cylinders should I be ok?
What other test could be done for peace of mind?

I just overheated mine this past weekend and either blew head gasket or cracked head not sure which yet but funny thing is I called SBT (Short Block Technologies) and they highly recommended Brett at Jet Trendz, he's actually in New Port Richey, FL. They said he was the best out there so that is where I dropped mine off at on Monday! You should call Brett and ask him about the ski you are looking at.
