Help rebuilding a 98 GP800
I have a 1998 GP800 that is completely apart. I was racing it back in 99, and did some mods to it. I hydrolocked the engine in freshwater and went home. I tore out the motor to get the water out and opene up the crankcase then liberally sprayed it down with oil and anti-water sprays.
Its been sitting there for about 5 years.
Well I have 2 '05 GP1300R's and got back into the jetski scene after a long hiatus. I know the GPR's arent excatly the best boat to play in the surf. I've decided to get my GP800 back together and I need some help.
What do I need to do to prep the engine for reassembly? Should I coat it with something and let it sit?
Would I need to clean the cylinder walls, cylinders, ets? And if so what should I use?
I have the manual for it allready, so is there anything else I would need.
Thanks for the help.

Post some pics so we can see the condition of the engine internals.

Check that crank out and make sure the bearings are not rusted,..if they, you need to send it off to be re-built. I personally would do it to be safe anyway.

Definately have the crank rebuilt or replaced.
If you hydrolocked it it needs work.
What all was damaged 5 years ago.
Crank work a fresh top end and a carb rebuild should get you running.
I f the engine was not run after clearing out the ingested water assuming that rods were not bent etc,
5 years sitting with just a little water in those bearings and you have a problem.
Crank could be twisted bad also.
