    If you are still running OPAS, check to see if all the linkage is still properly fastened (especially the bolt that attaches the flat metal bar to the bottom of the steering nozzle). Also, check the two plastic bushings at the pivot points of the steering nozzle.

    I think that is a good plan. You may have debris in only one cylinder. When accelerating, one paddle lifts, the other doesn't, causing the ski to steer in one direction. Then, when you let off, the paddle drops and causes the ski to steer back the opposite direction.

    Let us know how it works out,

    Sounds like you saved $19.50 over the commercial PVC block ups... Ron
