    What to do to engine?

    The guy I bought my jetski from thought the motor was locked up and we pulled the motor last night and took off the starter and what do you know. The starter was 100% locked up and now the engine turns over nicely by hand with the plugs out. So the next question is what all should I do to this ski before throwing a new starter on and tossing the engine back in? The ski has 100 hours on it and is an Ultra 150 2001 model.

    With a 100 hrs on it, I would do the top end since you have the motor out, when I had 150's they were good for @ 125 hours before the top end needed freshing up............

    IF PROPERLY MAINTAINED... I run synthetic oil, i de-carbonize engine twice a year [once mid season and at end of season], new plugs every third time i hit the lake, and stay away from blended fuels. 90 hours and still hit 64-65 like it did brand new in '96.
