    Water in 2002 TXI 1200

    What is the easiest way to determine if the crank of my Virage has been wet. It is a new ski to me and I want to determine this before I take her to Lake Powell.

    She is a basket case and while I am waiting on a stator plate I figure I would check it out. Yes the front is disassembled down to the back stator casing. Can I tell by pulling the front seal or the air intake?

    You could peek into the crankcase by removing the intake manifold, but if you have the flywheel off, why not just split the cases and have a look? You are more than half way there already.

    Engine still in the hull?

    Thanks guys!

    Yes the engine is still in the hull. I do not want to remove it unless I have to. I was thinking the same thing. Remove the intakes and have a gander.

    Thing is, if I split the case, I may as well rebuild it. Been there done that. In my experience it is just better to get a guaranteed engine from SBT. I have had two engines from them and they are the best, greatest and easyist to deal with. I dont want to do that if it is not needed.

    I would much rather rebuild one myself where I get to pick the parts used and the person doing the machine work. You end up with a better built motor for roughly the same or less cost than SBT.

    The breaker box on my basket case was hot-wired. Does anybody know which wires went to which breakers? I ordered a new white button breaker and just got it in. Now I dont know which wires went to which breakers. I take it the black "circuit breaker" is for the whole harness and the other is for the fuel pump, but which wires are which?

    I take it the right black rubber vent under the cowling is a vent for the gas tank. Is the left one for the battery?

    Thanks in advance

    One vent for the fuel tank, one vent for the battery (if still using an old-school lead-acid battery).

    The red wires from the battery feed one side of each/both circuit breakers.

    One 15 Amp breaker then feeds the Red/Purple wire, which in turn powers almost everything.

    The other 15 Amp breaker feeds only the Red/White wire which powers only the electric in-tank fuel pump.

    I need help locating a sensor. It fills the hole on top of the stator assembly. I think I saw it when I first cracked this basket case but I cant find it now. I slid up the gas tank to replace the gas hoses and dont want to move it around too much looking for it because I am afraid I will damage the white foam underneath it.

    Anyhow if someone could tell me where this sensor plugs into it would be great. I dont know if it should plug into the engine electrical harness or over the gas tank.

    Thanks guys and K447 do you ever get in the water? You are always here;0
