Engine Hydraulic Locked
Rebuilt a 1992 SLX650. Bored cylinders .50 oversize, put in new pistons and rings. Started it up, started Ok, took onto water, ran for about 15 minutes and then quit. Couldn't get any spark. Took compression and 1 & 3 were 145 lbs. Middle cylinder low.Took to repair shop and they
removed head and found piston cracked across complete surface. They told me the engine had hydralic locked.
Any ideas as to how this could happen. Ski was not tipped but somehow water entered engine.

sounds like either head gaskets, water bar gasket and or base gasket could be bad.. or you have a cracked case. 92s and 93s had the cooling go thru the cases and if the ski wasn't winterized right the case was proned to cracking

Hi polynick, WELCOME to the Green Hulk Forums!!
Pressurize the cooling system with that piston down, remove the spark plug and see if you can see where the water enters the cylinder using a long necked flashlight.
