Oil on plugs
I replaced the stock plugs and noticed a small amount of oil on the threads, not much, but enough to feel and see. The ends of them were the gap is was totally black and a couple of the threads. Does this have to do with the rings still seating? When I shined a light down the open hole where the plugs were, it is still difficult to see. When I do, I thought I would see aluminum colors but I could only see dark brown. Do the aluminum parts discolor that quickly?

Geeze, that is what I thought and was hoping for crazed and Hulk. There are two Sea Doo service areas in my area and they are both stupid as F***. I had to pick up an oil filter and just asked the questions as on the forum and one response was, "Get that thing in here now, the seals are broken." The other was "If you don't see aluminum color in there, you have a serious problem." Thank GOD I have saved hundred of dollars doing my own mods!! Thanks again..
