HELP!! Engine stalled while running on hose - what do I do?
While trying to find the water leak at my stator cover, I was running my 1200TXi on the water hose.
I tried to follow proper procedure:
1) Start engine
2) Turn on hose
After getting it started, it ran for about 30 seconds and then the engine stalled. I quickly ran and shut the hose off. The water ran for about 4 seconds with engine off. I had the hose running with very low pressure.
I immediately started the engine after shutting off the water and revved it briefly a few times and then shut it down.
Is there anything else I should do?????
I've heard this can be disastrous - please let me know if there's anything else I should do. Thanks!!

It sounds like you turned the water off in time..
Pull the plugs and crank it just to verify if there is any water in the engine.

Ok. Will do right now. As I mentioned, I have started it (twice now) since this happened with no water. I let it run for about 20-30 seconds each time, with a generous cool down in between and everything seems fine (fingers crossed).
I'll go pull the plugs and crank it now. I'm about to start tearing it apart so I can pull the engine tomorrow, but I don't want to tear it down if there is something I should do to that requires me to start it, crank it, or run it for a while.
Thanks for the quick reply, BD!!!!
I assume if no water comes out when I crank with no plugs, I should be good to proceed with the engine removal???

Yes if no mist is present you are good to go.. It would not hurt to pour some 2-stroke oil down the slugs while the plugs are removed.. Oil before rust = Happy...

BD....THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
I just pulled the plugs and cranked. Nothing but air. I think this is good news.
While the plugs were out, I thought it would be prudent to spray some fogging oil in each cylinder. Sprayed for about 2 seconds/each cylinder. Then put the plugs back in and cranked for a few seconds without the lanyard in.
Hopefully, I didn't do any damage.
Thanks again for the quick help!!!! If you were near me, I buy you a "beer" and we could play "darts", on me, of course.

I guess I am flushing my skis out the wrong way? I used to turn on the ski, then the hose. Then, someone on this forum (not sure who) told me to turn on the hose before I turn on the ski.
They run fine... lol
Wow... I can't believe I was that dumb. I don't know what I was thinking. I should have referred to my bible (Owner's Manual) sooner.
