Hey, New here but have been a avide reader of these forums ever since I got into the wonderful world of PWC this summer. I recently purchased my first YAMAHA waverunner, its a 1997 Wave Venture 1100 non running, Have a couple questions.
I own a 92 seadoo GTX, on the seadoo for the Crankshaft there is a Oil line feeding the crankshaft for lubricant (also goes to oil pump rotary valve), and I dont see that on my yamaha, what is lubricating the crankshaft on the yamaha (previous ownered put on a oil block off kit so I Premix) ? Just curious. does the Grease zerk by the CDI unit going to the flywheel housing just grease up the bendix inside?
Ok now onto the good stuff, when I recieved the Yamaha it was completely dead, ended up diagnosing a bad starter solenoid. Boom fixed that turns over great, But I was curious the all 3 carbs were full of gas including cylinders (its all out now, i was carful in removing the gas not to blow seals) , is this due to a bad Needle and Seat?? The carbs are sitting on my bench pending a nice cleaning. I want to refrain from having to Rebuild these suckers cause its about $100 to do all 3
!! So is the Needle and seat behind the Diaphram? tell me if Im right.
Last Question. pheewww, On my Seadoo I have done a Jet Pump service, replacing Cone O-ring and the Cone Oil. On the Yamaha i Dont see the little Allen Screw plug to fill the cone once its back on. I havent taken the cone off or anything on the jet pump for that matter, Do you service the Jet pump cone like you do on a Seadoo?? Help! i dont know what kinda service was done on this bad boy, i just wanna get it done now since i have the whole thing torn apart as it is LOL. If i do remove the cone and replace oil. what type of gear oil? how to do it? etc..
ALSO, THESE YAMAHAS ARE A PITA TO WORK ON!!! PICTURES ARE BEFORE I TACKLED THIS HOG AND IT ALL TORN APART NOW.
more pictures of work to be done if you guys wanna see more?!
