I am going to probably buy this ski tomorrow. Person states the following:
"fine like i have not ran a comperssion check on it so that will be cool to see what it is I have no idea. I ran it on the fourth of july weekend and it ran all weekend except for sunday. i ran it in the mourning and brought it back in for some lunch and fired it back up but would not go over 15 mph. I looked at the jet and clean some mud out of it but did not change. so i dont know if there is junk in the jet drive or not." Also says "it will idle all day but that's about it."
He agrees to a compression check and we'll be starting it on the trailer with a flush hose.
Here's the two photos in the ad.
My first guess of the obvious is that there is probably something stuck in the jet pump or drive, or impeller, or bent impeller with having to drag mud out of it. A quick fluch hose hook-up will tell if it is clogged there too I believe. If those check out OK and the compression comes back OK, what do you guys think this ski's problem is? Think it's a good bet on this purchase?
