96 spx 717 engine rebuild tip help please ("noob")
dont know whats wrong with it yet... prob seized (still turns over but really hard...)
this jetski was given to us by our rich friend up the street who thought it was seized himself but didnt care about it so he was on his was to the dump and lucky us we stopped him
turns out it was full of water!!
he didnt care so he let us have it!!
once we got started it ran great for a long time.
while its all apart and stuff anything we should change and/or upgrade that would help with power?
and thing we should look at...?
where can i find a web site for new parts for this thing (pipes, props) what prob should we use?
how fast should these things be at no throttle? i know mine is really fast compaired to others.
how would i tune it?
is it normal for this thing to take off (revs really high) when out of water? the guy next door owns a 96 xp and when he starts it up the idle doesnt even change.
thanks for any help!!!

well, before you start worrying about hot rodding it you should either go ahead and rebuild it before it scatters on it's own and tears up a lot of stuff. if it sat with water in for very long most likely all of the ball and needle bearings in the engine are rusted and something will let go very soon.

If you or your friends have rebuilt motors like this before..then have at it...if you aren't sure about everything look into one of the companies that sell rebuilt motors..sometimes a quality rebuilt block can be cheaper and ALOT less headaches..just something to think about....
