    If anyone know's why this would have happend please let me know....the only thing that I can think of is my ceramic washers might have caused it, because my SC did go out on me several months ago and I think my dealer did a bad job of cleaning all the particles out of the engine.

    my guess is that the particals caused your motor to throw a rod

    could be you cracked the cylinders, could be a rod or bearing let go, let the piston hammer into the head and blow the head gasket while also wrecking the valves, spark plug, and combustion chamber

    could be dropped or snapped some valves which hammered the head and maybe let the head gasket go with it

    you have any oil in the hull?

    what cylinder? you have the smashed plug in the middle, but coolant in the rear-most cylinder... did you mix the plugs up? which plug goes where

    is the starter still attached to the side of the motor, or is it laying inside the hull?

    still got warranty? ski stock?

    Had to have a new engine put in!

    No oil in the hull.....coolan was in cylinder "1" and the spark plug came from cylinder "1". Yeah the starter is still on the motor...but it will not turn the eingine.

    Oh by the way coolant came in after the damage....my ski was not losing coolant at the time....when I took off the spark plug....like 5 min later I noticed coolant in the combustion chamber.

    Your going to have a lot of damage and it was most likely caused by a dropped valve. The coolant may be coming in through a crack in the bore,a side effect of having a valve bouncing around in there.Time for the engine to come out I'm afraid.

    Do you have an aftermarket ECU?

    Unhappy Valve damage

    I think I got similar problem like what you got …. At high speed the engine turned off by it self and it wouldn’t start back … when the mechanic opened the engine head he told me its from the intercooler leaking water … He told me don’t put high pressure water house when you flush the Engine when you don from your ride … IM not sure if this is the problem.
