    Pics of my pistons....not a pretty sight

    You can read of the original problem/symptoms here: http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=28090

    And see pics after removing domes here: http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=28151


    Here's some pics of the pistons:

    PTO,CEN,MAG
    MAG CEN PTO



    MAG



    Jugs are at the machine shop now. Some jacka$$ bored only one cylinder .25mm over . Machinist said to buy a +.50mm kit and he'd take care of the rest. I took zman's advise and bought kit from jkwaterparts on Egay. I'll be pulling the tank and doing a complete fuel system rebuild and go to pre-mix in the mean time. Tomorrow I'm making my own crank seal testing tool, I'll post on how that turns out later.

    Running lean sucks!!!

    More like a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. Truth be known, I'm a gearhead and kinda looking forward to the rebuild...just hate losing time on the water.

    Plug chops, is that killing ignition during a WOT run? and do you keep throttle open or close it when you kill ignition?

    Can I check wash by removing the domes? Can the headgasket be reused? and if so how many times can it be reused?

    Run it at WOT, the pull the kill cord. Drift over to land, or dock. Remove plugs.

    Piston wash.. remove water rail, remove dome, take a peek. I have reused head gaskets with no problem. I have also ran with one gasket to raise compression, with no problems.
