    look what i did today!!



    nothing special but i decided to clean everything out and go ahead with the motor swap. i rather have a good core for a nice that a blown motor half way through the summer if anything should happen.

    its just going to be a stock motor with proks, XO, beach house sponsons, r&d grate, and stock nozzle until i can find a good deal on a 85/88 set. i am finally getting the right filters since i was unknowingly running the 951 filters and wondering for the life of my why they kept falling off .

    anything you guys think i should look into while the hull is mostly empty?

    cant wait to get back on the water. was going to try and finish by the weekend but i will be out of town. and i am waiting on some parts that wont be here until after anyways.

    the plugs pictured at the bottom. where can i get replacements? they are a little swollen and i just dont like the way the feel when i tighten them up.

    I like 02 drain plugs They have check balls and dont let water in if you forget to put them in. You would need to enlarge the hole or just fill it and put them in the back like other Skis

    Couple things i wish i would have done back when the hull was empty:

    2 drain plugs!!!

    Check sponsons (sp) to ensure they are tight and sealed.

    make sure VTS is all set, much easier without pump and crap in the way.

    that's all for now.

    Also new fuel lines and clean the heck out of it.

    Yes, you are absolutely correct. I'd buy some stock ones like Pest mentioned and replace them.
