Thread: Wont turn over

    Wont turn over

    I was prepping my ski the other day to go riding, wne to start it and it wouldn't turn over. I recharged the battery(just in case), checked out the fuses(there all good), and replaced the spark plugs...still nothing. She'll crank up like normal starting but won't turn over. I think it might of went dry (fuel) from the end of last season through winter. I think this might be the cause. So is there a way to get fuel through the lines to get her going? Or is the problem something else? Thanks

    You can take an eyedropper and put a small amount of fuel thru the spark plug hole and try again after reinstalling all plugs. This will let you know if its a fuel issue.

    A very good mechanic admitted to me the other day that he tried for hours to get a ski running before he realized the fuel valve was in the off position.

    what kind of ski?
    The fuel probably drained back to the tank and you may need to pull the plugs and put a tiny amount of fuel into each cyl to get it started.

    If this doesnt work, start looking for spark... must not be there...

    Before I tried the whole eyedrop thing,I replaced all the plugs. Think maybe I'll replace the wires if I don't see any sparks
