When did the ski stop runnning/starting? Pull the valve cover to check and see if the timing chain is intact.

Have you checked the compression? It should be around 125 psi... Ron

remove the head cover and see if is every thing ok, may have broken valve or rocker arm, also remove the fuel line from the rail will split fuel w/ the key on..what model of your ski?

If the compression is good then you don't have cam chain or valve problems. No need to look there. Check for fire and fuel.

He never said which ski was in trouble, which engine it has, what the compression was or how he tested it. All he said was that his SC was turning, which is bad to begin with. Josh, you need to provide additional information... Ron
