3rd cylinder gone - need help!!
Just bought my first waverunner a couple of months ago and after all the bad weather etc........have used it for maybe 1 hour. Runner now has 73 hours and it had the oil line come off number 3 cylinder and blow up engine. Woods Fun Center said they can fix it for $4400, which I don't have. Would it be better to buy a newer engine or try to have this one repaired??? How much would a used engine cost??? If repaired, do you know anyone around Lago Vista who is trustworthy??? Thanks for your help guys.......

You can find some nice used skis with the same or less hours and usually mods for what they want to fix that motor! :wow: I would tell those people to suck it! I would think you could get that fixed for less than a 1/4 of that price if thats all thats wrong with it. Sorry to hear about your motor man!

Post up some pictures of the carnage so the site members might give you a better estimate of repair costs.

I have that same ski i.e. the 01 XLT1200 silver trimmed model. Anyways what is the best method of ensuring the Oil Lines are secured thus avoiding the engine rebuild every time one pops off?
I just baught this thing and am having a new SBT put in it at my local Stealership because the oil line to the 1st and 3rd cylinders popped off, but after this I'm doing everything from here on out myself.
