What is the best/easiest method to turn the engine over by hand? I have two 1998 Kawasaki 1100 STX ski's. One runs great, the other will not turn over. May be a short at the starter, stater may have shorted because of a seized engine. I would like to start troubleshooting but I am new to PWC. I have the repair manuals but it does not show the best method.

Take the spark plugs out, this prevents the build up of compression in the cylinders. Then reach in and grab the impeller shaft and turn, if difficult, us large channel locks (put cloth or tape on jaws to prevent gougeing the shaft).
