    Little problem

    My friend has an 08 250 with a rather funny situation. Supposedly some girl he met on his jetski got mad at him and while the ski was at her house she put dirt/sand into his engine oil fill and gas tank. i thought i would post here and see what we can come up with. I would guess that the engine has to be pulled and broken apart. What do you all think?

    DAMN, Yeah you are probably looking and a tear down of the engine ... and have that girl arrested. while your at it ..You can probably get away with flushing the fuel tank if he didn't crank it up .

    How did he figure that out?? Did he start it!!???

    Step 1. If it can be proven that it was stored at her house and right after they broke up it was vandalized I would pursue pressing charges as the cost to fix will be high.

    Step 2. I would say you can probably flush the tank and fuel lines on your own.

    Step 3. I would also say youll have to break engine down and clean it out

    no...he didnt fire it up. he's gonna be pissed that he has to tear it down too. it only had a few hours on it. and the guy is not going to want to do anything himself. expensive.

    thanks for the help soo far.

    what if you were to hook a continous source of a thick liquid (hose) with and let it continously run into the oil fill while you extract dozens of times out the dipstick hole. Just a thought. sand is heavy, i know. so no matter what there will prolly be some sitting at teh bottom that doesnt get stirred up sand sucked out.

    I wouldnt trust it, you would need something even thicker than diff fluid almost like bearing grease and even that wouldnt get all of it out of the rings and bearing races...

    sounds like a rebuild to me. or a donation to me, either way it will cost him alot.

    if the engine was never fired and the sand was only put through the oil fill hole dry remove the head, disassemble, clean, reassemble, and you should be done.

    Yes, good point. This type of vandalism would often be covered under the owner's own comprehensive coverage on ski.

    Policies typically exclude damage to insured property intentionally caused by another insured living on the premises. But probably not an issue if ski is just temporarily stored at psychovandal's property.

    Certainly a crime if it can be proven, vandalism, malicious mischief, etc., maybe even as felony given the amount of damage at issue. But how do you prove it? Almost need a confession.
