    Help Getting the ski to turn over

    Guys,

    I am unsure what to do next. My 06 RXP stopped turning over when trying to start. It will rotate about 1 revolution and then the starter Just spins. I replaced the battery, the starter and the bendix and it still works the same. I have the engine out of the ski and can see the bendix engages for about one turn and then the gear moves back but keeps spinning.

    What am I missing?

    you said you replaced the battery, if the battery is weak and not enough juice, the starter will spin, but it wont spin the bendix fast enough to engage it. try connecting the ski or ski/battery to a running car with jumper cables and then trying it again

    DO NOT try to jump it with a running vehicle. Some of these electronics are sensitive and you might cause damage. You can jump it from a known good battery, or just fully charge the battery you are using to rule that out of the equation.

    I used a new battery with the same results. Any other ideas.

    Its really not a good idea with any ski. A good car battery should have more than enough juice to fire off a ski.

    How are the jet pump bearings?

    Right now the jet pump is not even attached. I have the engine on the floor ant it is still rotating about one revolution before it starts spinning.
