Hi Ratrace... welcome back.
So did you get your water in the oil issue resolved? What about your over-pressurizing leaking coolant? Did you ever determine your problems during your overhaul? What all did you do for your overhaul?
I recall you had a no speed being indicated on the display last year too. As recommended then... check the wires from the flapper wheel to the display. Now that you also have issues with the mode button... I suspect either the wiring at the display... or the display itself.

water in the oil was solved. I hooked 2 hose to the separator wrong.. solved. speedo now working and mode button. loose connection to the display. now I have a new issue. I have a leak through the driveshaft. been hunting this leak for 2 weeks. anybody know the easiest way to change the seal? would love to use this ski one day...thanks

Sounds like you need to rebuild the MSX thru-hull driveshaft bearing assembly. Takes a special tool to get a wrench on the driveshaft so you can unscrew it from the pump-side coupler.
See the info here:
