devil ski ? help
95 tigershark daytona ,I got it not running and no history .carbs were bad clogged so I rebuilt both carbs .it appeared ready to go .jumping it from car battery and had to spray a little ether to get it going. Now it starts ,I turn the hose on a little rev it up to about 3500 it warms up I rev it up high one time and it redlines to 8000 and sticks there ,stop button did not work and believe it or not I pulled plug wires to kill it and it did not finally choked it down to kill it ,I put oil block of kit on and mixed 40 to 1 is this thing junk ? Any ideas?

It is possible that you have an airleak on your engine like a bad crankseal causing the high rev. you should never try to rev your ski up very high on the hose because the engine has no resistance and can run away like yours did. Try putting it in the water tied to the trailer and see how it runs. Running on the hose is almost useless for any testing other than to simply see if it will run. 40:1 premix ratio should be good.

Don't spray ether (starting fluid) in it... use a spray bottle with mixed gas instead. Using ether removes the oil film on the cylinder walls and will cause damage. My seadoo likes to stay revved as well when I have it hooked to the hose, but in the water it runs fine. There isn't any resistance on the impeller (no load) when out of water. Put it in the water and test it.
