New to PWC's just got 98 GP800, what should I check.
Just got a 1998 GP800. It didn't run when I got it and hasn't been in the water for 2 years. I checked the compression and it's at 135 psi on both cylinders and had spark so I was comfortable it would run. Anyway I got it to start today by changing the plugs and hooking the fuel line up to small bottle of fresh gas.
It has 186 hours, don't know if it's been rebuilt, but I can tell by the marring on the pipe bolt heads that at least that has been removed at some point.
So I plan on running some fuel system cleaner through it and changing out the old gas, and flushing the coolant passages, and putting in a new battery. What are some other things I should check out prior to actually putting it in the water.
