    Riva Thermostat

    Just thought I would show everybody what I found while doing some maintenance. Had to strip waterpump housing apart. I am running Rivas thermostat upgrade, but it seems that the quality of the thermostat was in question.

    Also,(and finally)putting some ferrea valves into the head. 60 hours on the engine. I think I've got AFR dead right looking at the pistons, but I must have taken some water in thru my intake. I hope thats wear it came from! The ski has beening sitting a few weeks. Its winter!
