    Angry Water in engine. -98 spx

    Hi,
    Have some problems with my spx,if i have been out on the water with it and stop it for a little while about 10 min. And then try to start it again the sylinder on the mag. side is filled with water.But if i take it out of the water right after i have stopped it and let it run for a few sec. then it is ok.

    Any one had a familier problem?

    Is the hull filling with water when it sits? If not, how is water entering the engine?

    There aint no water in the hull,and it is only the cylinder on the mag. side that gets filled.

    Your base gasket is busted at the bottom of the cylinder. Pull the cylinders off and replace it. Tear it down quick or you'll be buying a crank too...

    Another possibility I thought of after my previous post is that the oring on top of the sleeve could be melted in two...from overheating. Pull the head and inspect it first...maybe you'll get lucky.
