1996 sea doo spi confusing me!!!!!

hello everyone . I,m new to the pwc world. i bought the spi with the knowledge that it wasn't running right . the guy told me that he was out on the lake and it just died . would not crank ,beep or anything so i got it very cheap. got it home disconnected the battery and reconnected it and it beeped hit the start button and it fired right up!! yeeeaaa right ....wrong!! hooked up the water hose fired it up and turned water on and it idles great, half throttle runs great, full throttle for about 35 seconds and it just dies,kills all electrical and everything. I have to disconnect and reconnect the battery every time it does this like a reset but after i do that it its the same thing every time.Anyone have any ideas please!!!!!

Need to quit running it that hard on the hose. It could be the rectifier over heating. Check the battery voltage when its at idle.

A charged battery just sitting should have 12.5 volts. Measuring voltage while running should be appx 13-14.5v.
Look and make sure all connections and grounds are good, tight, and clean.
