    Unhappy RXP Wont Start! New relay and battery just clicks!

    Trying to get my RXP started. Been a project ski for the past few years. 2004 hull with 2007 engine and riva stage 3 parts/ecm. Just clicks and wont start or turn over. Replaced the solenoid and the battery with brand new ones, same thing! If i connect jumper cable directly to starter it turns over but very slowly. Like one revolution, pause for a second then another revolution. Can hear fuel pump and see gauges working. Motor was just inspected a couple months ago and had new timing chain and riva valve upgrades installed. Supercharger was just rebuilt. Could it just be my starter is weak and needs replacement? Thank you so much for any suggestions!

    Does the motor turn by hand with the plugs removed. Is there any metal in the oil fliter.

    Filter looks good. Have not turned motor by hand yet. All connections are clean. But tested starter in drowned mode as described in the service manual, says there should not be more than .2volts dc across the solenoid when starting and there is 12.5 so maybe I have a new bad solenoid which is hard to believe.

    Has it run since the timing chain, and SC was re-done?

    No, it has not run yet.

    They set the timing wrong.

    With the Crank locked, Cam locked, and cyl #3 @ TDC (closest to gas tank) the lines on the cam gear should be almost level with the head. Verify this, and let us know, where its at.

    Hopefully the valves aren't already bent.
    DO a compression test after its set correctly, & let us know
