    Found This Today Getting Her Ready For The Season

    So, I found these two screws loose when I was checking hose clamps for tightness today. Is there any reason this should have been left loose? Looks like they are for the fuel rail. I will be calling the dealer tomorrow to let them know I wasnt happy to find what I found. Is there any sort of torque requirement for these?

    Also, is there anything special to do to de-winterize a seadoo besides checking tightness on clamps, gassing up, and starting for a min or two? By the way the dip stick was out for the picture and put back in afterwords incase you see that too.

    if those screws fell out, your fuel rail would have been blowing fuel all over your engine, and could have caused a fire..Definately Not good !

    Not good if that rail would come loose.
    They do not need to be very tight, If you tighten them too much, sometimes the nut in the manifold will want to break loose and just spin, making it a chore to get them loose.

    Yes, I am sure there is one, but ever since I stripped one a few years ago, I just kinda know how tight to go.
    I am sure someone that knows what it is will chime in.

    Apparently the shop just snugs them up. Deff no reason to have been left loose, they just pull it off spray some fog oil down and tighten back up. Maybe I'm too nice of a guy, didn't really say sorry for havin left it that way or anything. Said I can swing on over and they will do a free summarization make sure shes running right and set me up with a gift certificate of some sort. Better than nothing and being the first service mainly wanted to make them awhere I found that.

    Well, dropped it off on Fri so they could tighten the two screws and give it a summarization. Picked it up after work and actually had a nice conversation with the mechanic. Owner gave me a $30 gift card for the screw up and me habin to bring it in. Put 3hrs on her this weekend and had a blast doing it.
