Ya I've been looking for a lot of the parts on it because I'm to cheap worked out I guess. The starter wasn't its problem bad piston thankfully I have a couple

Anyone have a reason i shouldnt run a .5 over with a .25 piston will it hurt the crank if I put a diff size piston in it I also have a good standard size one

No, you can’t run two different size pistons because of the imbalance.

Kinda disappointed I think the crank is toast noisy and has a tight spot

Make sure it's not just the impeller rubbing on a dried out wear ring or something.

One other question should I just hear this wheel like a stock one or do I need a puller?

You will need a puller just like the stock one. You can see the external threads where the puller screws onto.

You need the puller like the factory. It's the only way to fly, that's why the outer part of teh hub is threaded. Best place to pull from.

I ordered a puller now the waiting game. most of the parts are for sale or trade if you really want some of them. The wizzy ring gear is trash most of the teeth are half chewed from the cheap starter that was on it so it's just cool wall art now

Those carbs look like Novi 42's. That ski was full of goodies. Good luck.

Runs great still a bit of water jeting and a little fine tuning on the carbs but kinda blown away at how good all the setups working
