    Fuel in Bottom End

    For the better part of last season, I'm pretty sure my needle valves were leaking. My '97 GTX would run if it had been started that day, but took forever to start that first run of the week.

    I've ordered new Viton needles and seats, and they'll be going in before the season starts (Among other things). I'm just wondering what the proper way to remove excess gas from the bottom end is.

    I know I initially forgot to turn the fuel valve off when I winterized the ski, and it sat for a few days before I caught it. I've been told that the only thing that can really be done is turn the ski over with the spark plugs and crank case pulse line pulled. Is this the right way to do it, and is this all that can be done?

    Thanks!

    Pull plugs, GROUND PLUG WIRES you definitely don't want a spark. Have an extinguisher handy just in case. Use wads of paper towels held over the plug holes and crank it. Wipe up all residue when finished and rinse out the hull before firing it back up.

    Sounds good. So I don't need to do anything with the crank case pulse line?
