I'm still deciding on my path forward with this ski. It looks nice and supposedly everything works.... Ha ha... except of course the engine. This is the PTO piston. The rod bearing on the crankshaft is locked up. Oil lines look good I don't see an oil related failure here. Spark plug nice and tan... What's the root cause. Old age?? Abuse in its earlier life? The head on the PTO side has some uglies as well but the rings are in place whole and move freely. I don't think the ski was ever opened up or touched from a maintenance standpoint. Input is welcome. I have another complete RFI ski. I'm thinking of pulling the engine and checking it out... but I'm leaning towards building the engine, new crank, etc... Should be an adventure.
