A good friend of mine has this ski and I told him I'd take a look at it. The first thing I noticed is it seems as if the starter will catch while the engine is running, causing it to not rev up and stall often at idle. I am not familiar with theses units and was curious as to if anyone has had similar issues. The engine will start and idle for the most part but idles low and when attempting to accelerate it will attempt to do so but a loud click followed by bogging keeps it from revving up. I cleaned the carb to rule that out from being a part of the issue. Possibly a Bendix issue? Any advice is appreciated.
