Update On My GTX, Vol 2. Things working out.
Well, My good friend yellow jacket, traded me his known good 185 impeller for a 4tec exaust manifold I had.
Then I ordered a bunch of seals for my new pump houseing that i never put on, so now i have All new jet pump, the only thing that was used was the impeller, but it was in great shape.
One thing that I never even had on either skis, was a seal that goes around the front of the jet pump, part number 9. So I just bought it and put it on.
I got it all together and with my super GPS garmin, that wont fallout like my other one did, and went and tested, I got my speeds. 59.8 @ 7500 and it comes out the hole alot better.
the only proplem Im having now is, as I ride I loose coolant, the ride plat is perfect cause its new, some things i did was replace the thermostat, But in know its not leaking where the apoxy is, so i think the only place it could be going it at the seal behind the water pump, i took it out the do the mod, but never put a new seal, but the old one was in good shape.
Where could it be going other than this place.
It only disappears while rideing, so its must not be holding pressure.

Glad the ski is running better, but I can't help much on the leak. Do you see any antifreeze in the hull? You might try pulling the plugs and see if one is a lot cleaner than the others... Ron

ok I pulled them all but the front one, there was a load of oil ontop of the spark plug, in the hole before i took it out????
The front one was alot cleaner than the rest but i dont know if it was due to the oil or not.

With the engine warm, you might want to check the compression... Ron

where would the oil come from? the valve cover leaking?

I bought new spark plugs, but i still dont know why that oil was in the plug hole.
Is head gasket failure common in these 4tecs?
