    93 Waveblaster

    All,
    Please excuse the stupid questions but I'm brand new to this. I pickup up a 93 Waveblaster from a friend that's real clean inside and out. Problem is it's been sitting for about 5 years and appears seized. Friend says it was running before he let it sit.

    Any tips on freeing it up? Do I need to pull the engine?

    Am I wasting my time? I do see alot of discussions about these blasters and how much fun they are once you get the hang of them.

    What happens when you hit the start button?

    All I get is a click. I tried to put a pipe wrench of the shaft and give it a turn but nothing.

    Did you try turning the shaft with the spark plugs out? Are you trying to turn the intermediate shaft or the long drive shaft?

    Plugs were out. Pulled off the shroud and tried it at the intermediate shaft and also at the long drive shaft. I did notice there was little or no gap between the prop and the side walls. Can't tell if the problem is here or the engine

    I used to own a blaster.... loads of fun.

    If I were you, I'd try to pull/seperate the pump from the engine first, then turn the engine over. With the stock lubrication, the engine is probably still freed up, and hopefully the pump is frozen.

    I would also advise that you pull the carb and clean it up.

    If it wasnt winterized I bet the water in the pipe froze up the engine. Seen alot of skis with badly stuck pistons due to that. Good thing is the 701 is common and pretty cheap to fix.

    Hopefully it just the pump/wear ring stuck but I doubt it.

    And as the name implies they are a blast to ride. Falling off is half the fun!

    Sounds like it's worth the effort. I'll try seperating the motor and pump and see where the problem is.

    Thanks all for the advice. I'll let you know what I find

    Put some oil in the cylinders and let it sit. They are pretty easy to work on and parts are everywhere!!!! I should have mine painted by the weekend. It will be time to play!!!!!!!!
