Quick Fuel Separator Question...
I emptied my old gas out of my ski (the red ring in the separator was about 1 inch from the bottom) and I just put new gas in there. Now the fuel separator is full, but the red ring is on the bottom. That is okay right?

Yes the red ring floats if you have water in the separator.

Hopefully it will run okay. I changed the spark pkus, emptied the fuel separator, and got all the old fuel out of the tank. I'm hoping that it will run okay, so I don't have to do my first carb rebuild...

you should be good, if you did get some water in teh fuel, the ethanol in our gas here will absorb it into solution. NExt hour or so might run a little rough at low throttle until you get all of the old fuel out of the system.
Where did the water come from???????
Was this over the winter type build up, or did you suck it in somewhere? Or did you get bad gas from the station. This happened to me earlier this year. Figured it was bad out of the ground. Station has since repalced their in ground tanks

that is not a bad thing if you stabilized it. It would be worse if you left half a tank and allowed condensation in the tank.
However here in NC, we use minimum 10% ETOL fuel and it does break down differently than a lot of other places.
that said. get rid of the old fuel. Clean the fuel lines best you can and go run it.
If you get up to Raleigh give me a call

you wont hurt anything if you take it apart carefully. especially the little screws inside. Make sure you use the correct screwdriver for each bolt. Some are #1 and some are #2 phillips and will strip very easily. be very careful with the gaskets and you will be ok. also, if you havent done it before, take pics as you go so that you remember how to put it back together
