Engine Cleaning SeaDoo Boats
How do you all clean your engines and the engine area? (I have been using the boat in salt water) I'm afraid to just spray water in the engine compartment and damage something. Also what type of lube should I spray the engine and parts with? I heard that WD-40 can loosen bolts and create problems.
In a good note, Jerry has finished work on my Supercharger.
I will be posting some tips for all Speedsters owners on how I took my SC out and the tools that I used.
Thank you all,

I find the "Dupont Performance Silicone" spray works well for whole engine spray, plastic, metal, intake grate area, jet pump area...everything. Its only $3.99 at Lowes.
Then I use Bomb XPS lube spray part#293600016 for throttle body lubrication and throttle cable.
I wouldnt recommend WD40.
Dont forget to REMOVE quick release fitting when done!

Your not going to hurt the engine by misting it with fresh water.
After riding in salt water I lightly mist my entire engine with fresh water then I dry it up with a colored rubber auto shammy. I make sure not to get the computer wet though thats mounted on the side top of the engine on my 4-tec. Then the next day when all is good and dry I spray metal parts inside engine area and engine with bombardier lube. I don't go to crazy with spraying it though cause it goes a long way. I also spray a little inside the pump onto the prop and I spray down the entire transom area. I also spray some up into the intake grate onto the drive shaft. The drive shaft will rust very quickly if you don't keep it lubed up.

I actually wash down my engine, with salt-away (not high pressure), intake, pump area and flush with salt-away, then let it dry for a day, then spray the lube all over.
