    Easiest way to get Water out "951DI".

    A friend of mine took his RXDi out and a Cooling line broke and today when he brought me the ski it was FULL of water to the SPARK plugs. I pulled plugs and water squirts out , OFCOARSE.

    Anyway. What is the beat way to get the water out of the cases?

    Thanks. I would love to finish it quick so the water doesn't have fun and RUST!

    pull the intake and get the shop vac out and tape a small hose on it and start to sucking it is bad you all most have to pull it and clean it all out and then put it back together check the counter balance oil to make sure there is no water in there to

    Does anyone know if I can Just lay it on its side and the water will run out?

    I will place it on the grass on a blanket. Lean it to the intake side.

    ?????

    The only way I know is to blow it out the spark plug holes. Shoot it out, add fogging oil, shoot it out, add fogging oil, install new plugs and try to start.

    It usually takes me two sets of plugs and two batteries.

    OH that is not enough for me. The cases hold to much water.
    I have pulled the Intake and reeds and sucked some water out with my oil boy and also cranked it over with no reeds or plugs in. Next is on its side to make sure it drains all out and then reinstall and start.

    Whatcha all think?

    I have tryed to get it on its side to get water out the way the motor sits in there you have to all most flip it upside down
    I would fog that motor every time you are done rideing it
    I am sure there was more than water in there (sand,dirt,and everything else)

    FYI, I flipped it over this morning with the Reeds out and boy the water just ran right out. I also cranked it over when it was flipped over.

    I was shocked to see all of the water.

    Good news is I got it started instantly afterwords and dumped a whole can of fogging oil in it and let it heat up.

    It was Fresh water and it was a dam cooling t-HOSE FITTING THAT BROKE.

    I am thinking of running the piss out of it when the T-fitting comes in.
    It has a bunch of oil in it until it gets here.

    What I have done in the past was this to clear the water from a waterlogged motor was 1st pull the plugs and spin the motor while holding the throttle wide open a few rounds.The take a set of wire cutters and cut the ground strap back about half of it off to allow for a large gap.Blow em dry then install them to fire the motor up with.The water wont drown out the fire at the wider gaps nearly as easy and will allow you to fire up the motor re4moving the water out of the bottom end,cyls'ect with out having to remove the reeds,ect.Then install a new set of plugs.This has worked on I dont know how many water craft motors for me.

    Austin, I don't read this site much as I would like to. I kind of forget about it. Turning the ski on its side is the ticket, LOL. I'd even pour some XPS or amsoil down the intake let sit a few minutes and thyen start it up ans smoke it out, I'd run it on the hose cause of the heat, then run it in the lake for good hr.

    That T fitting ws a recall item a long time ago......... I changed a ton while at PPG, see if his ski ever got it done. I remember it being a weird sized t fitting.....

    Call me if you need anything, Tim
