    I don't know what is wrong with my ski, I took it carb #1 all apart and it looks fine to me, I tried removing the main jet and pilot jet by turning them if that's what your supposed to do and the main jet got a nick on it. The fuel filter has nothing in it. I removed one screw thing in the pic, I don't know what it is by it was about 3/4 turns out.What else should I do? should I rebuild it?

    Read all the stickys about carb rebuilding. They help tremendously. The mixture screws may be under Welch plugs on those carbs, not sure. If they are, they have to be drilled out. Those carbs look to be in pristine condition. Also, use genuine kits to rebuild them.

    I couldn't find what I am looking for, I am keeping the stock airbox and I could only find 1 screw. What is the stock pop off pressure? turns out on that screw? In carb #1 it looks like I got a 117.5 mainjet and I cant take the jets out so I don't know what size pilot jet I have. The problem with my ski was the low end bog and it got to the point where I couldn't even plane on the water and get above 10mph
