    Fired it off with VF3's installed.....

    Today I finally got the carbs mounted. I started the ski on the trailer with the hose attached. Maybe I am crazy, but it didn't seem to have as much brap the first few minutes it was running. After a while, it sounded great...

    Dumbass me forgot to shake the tank first, and I just about smoked my neighbors out...

    As soon as the head gasket comes in, I will install the Pro-Tec rec head I got for even more brap, and snap...

    I think I have a head gasket somewhere. Didn't even to think to ask if you needed one. Now you just need to find an after market pipe

    Yeah, I forgot to mention I needed one.... I wasn't sure if you would have one!

    And I actually saw a Pro-Tec pipe setup for the GP760 NEW on eBay... Didn't have the cash, and it went for $240, or so... FAIL.

    remember you will need to tune your carbs
    ski must be in the water under a load to tune

    just dont want to see ya seize her
    would be best to get aftermarket tach

    YEP! I did the vf-3's and a key way at the same time.. HUGE differnce. It took me a month off and on to get my carbs right after that!

    I almost burned it down too!!!!
