    96 gti possible damage from overheat event

    Compression test is a good idea, I should have thought of that. I'll run it on the hose too. Thanks for the suggestions.

    96 gti possible damage from overheat event

    Took this ski out on labor day. I put shut off valves on the intake/outake hoses when I fixed this up, because I anticipated the need to tow it now and then, even though I got this ski working after sitting for years, I still don't know that much about them or jet skis in general...

    96 GTI exhaust hose replacement

    I burned through the exhaust hose, part number 274000266 on one of my skis. Stupid mistake, I had the intake and outake hoses shut off for towing, and forgot to open them when I went out, obviously it overheated fairly quickly. I stopped, and cooled the engine but the damage had been done...

    Thanks, I thought as much. Torqued the spark plugs down last night, will run them again tonight.

    1996 GTI and 1995 GTX

    Update and question. Got the skis on the water this weekend, beautiful weather and calm water for lake erie. Great for riding. GTX continues to perform great. GTI Started up and took off at launch, bring it back to sure and wouldn't restart. Pop the seat and see the fuel line feeding the...

    1996 GTI and 1995 GTX

    So, to wrap this up for now, here are pics of the final product. Two jetski's, a 95 gtx and a 96 gti, with trailer, sitting in someones backyard for the last (at least) 7 years, bought for $1000. Brought back to life by someone who has never worked on an engine before, let alone ridden or even...

    1996 GTI and 1995 GTX

    Thanks, I'll check the gti and see if it's missing spacers or something. Another question, I've got a nozzle with a vein and an Ozil without the vein as you can see in the picture. What kind of difference can I expect in their performance of the ski between them?

    1996 GTI and 1995 GTX

    I've got two nozzles here and don't see room for it. I do see it in the schematics now though. Guess I'll just leave it out. Another question, on the 95 GTX, without the dess post, is the buzzer only an over heating alarm?

    1996 GTI and 1995 GTX

    Question, I replaced the venturi on the 95 GTX. The one that was on it when I bought them last year did not have the attachment points for the reverse gate, even though the ski has the reverse capabilities. I wanted to add the reverse capability back onto the ski. I bought the venturi last...

    1996 GTI and 1995 GTX

    GTI is all back together, revinyled the seats, new buzzer, working gauge, etc... I'll switch up the skis on the stand and do a little work on the GTX and be ready to go on the first decent day. Still wondering if there is a way to test if an MPEM is functional without installing it on a ski...

    1996 GTI and 1995 GTX

    found someone local who has a 96 gts hood. don't care about the color mismatch.

    Solved 2 problems with one stone. While trying to get the bolts out from the latch, the hood broke off it the hinge, the hole and cracked part of the hood weakened the whole bottom of the hood. No choice but to get a new hood now anyway.

    1996 GTI and 1995 GTX

    I'm honestly not terribly concerned about the ascetics, if it runs reliably, and doesn't sink, I'm happy. I'm looking at prices for used hoods but may try a patch. I do want to bring the issue with the latch up again. I reach inside the air intake hole and feel the circular fitting turning...

    1996 GTI and 1995 GTX

    Okay, now that the GTI is running, I need to look at some cosmetic stuff. One issue is the most pressing, can anybody point me to some good fiberglass repair videos or threads for a hole this size. Do I need to take the hood off or can I work from the outside and Patch it and feather it the best...
