    Concerns on the pro!!!!

    Hey what up guys, Looks like no riding tomorrow, the bendix gave up. I got the new one today from ups and will proceed to install it tomorrow, thanks lugs for the tip. I was checking out the wash in the cyl.ers and notice that the first and second look good small build up of carbon but the thrid closest to the rear of the ski is still shiney and looks like the day it was installed. The ski fired up and ran fine no strange noises. To lean? Also may be a dumb question but do I need to install a triple pump like on my slt? Any help will be great. Thanks

    i think the triple fuel pump would be wise. but i'd ask the pros in here first!

    The 785 does not need the triple fuel pump it has two pumps built into the carbs #1 and #3..

    The pro's have fuel pumps on the carbs so there is no need for a triple pump ,just make sure your fuel valve is not plugged up .


    Steve is quick

    If it's still shiny make sure there isn't a water leak or it is just doesn't have enough time on it yet for a wash pattern . Show some pics of them .

    drill out

    I agree drill the holes out. Sometimes those flywheels are stubborn if they havnt been off. I really like Randys puller.

    might want to try an "easy out" on the busted bolts also. looks like a course tap with reverse twist. drill bolt insert easy out and twist counter clockwise. a little heat helps and works about 80% of the time for me. re: crap.... ck your fuel lines for break down... may be the crap in your seperator. also what color is it? ive dot a bud whose a boat maechanic that swears that the penzoil 2 stoke oils jell up leaving a blue green crud in the bowel.
    good luck at least winters coming so ya got time.
