    1996 Seadoo

    Bought used ski after sitting 1 1/2 years. Engine was locked. Removed head and scraped away rust. Used WD40 on pistons and worked crank both and forth till pistons freed up. Replaced battery, spun motor without plugs several times till water and muddy looking struff was mostly eliminatd. Seadoo now starts with fresh plugs runs great for a mile or so then acts like it runs out of gas. Also the gas warning light stays on the whole time. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    That thing is a time bomb bro If that motor was locked up... it's gonna lock up again at about 6800 rpm Don't ride it past swimming distance from the dock

    Thanks for the advice. Why is the gas light on all the time.

    Is it the gas warning light or the low oil light Does your fuel level digital diplay work properly ... if not... your tank level float is either stuck at the bottom, or it fell out of the bottom of the fuel pick up housing.
