    Dock Holiday '97 SLTX

    I bought this ski back in January of '08 with a nice OE cover, and a joke of a trailer for 350.00. It has 32.9 hours on the MFD and is in very good to near excellent cosmetic condition, the down side is the MAG rod let go. I'm guessing by the overall condition and from what the seller told me (he bought it just the way he sold it) that it was left at someones vacation property, seldom used, and never fogged or winterized, causing the failure on such a low hour, clean ski.

    I had planned on doing this project last spring but I bought a Harley and since I had the 780 to ride this went on the back burner. I then decided to make it a fall project but a motorcycle accident last October set everything back again until I recovered. Well. I'm at 85%, was back on the bike and skis' last month so I figure it's time to get things rolling again.

    With the exception of some HSP 92 octane domes it will be stock to start with. I'll add things like a ride plate,6 vane stator, AAT, impeller,...etc and report my results with pictures in this thread as time goes by.

    The previous owner pulled the carbs, exhaust, and MAG dome. He told me when he got this far he realized he was in over his head.

    Here's a few pictures of the engine compartment.

    Going back together

    Well, it's time to start putting it back together. I spent a lot of time cleaning everything, old sealant, gaskets, grease, oil, everything clean! I did a couple of dry runs...torquing the cases together with out any sealant to make sure the C-clips fit the grooves, the crank wasn't binding, and the seals were seating. Once that checked out I applied 2 stroke oil to all the crank/rod bearings and dropped it in. Jeff at Mid west crank did the rebuild.
