I'm also looking at an older ski, plan on testing it in the water. If all goes well I have a little money that I can throw at it for preventive maintenance. You mentioned a gas treatment to clean the carbs. How effective is this? I know that a carb rebuild is suggested in a few threads but I am not sure if I should wait until I have trouble or do that as a preventive measure. If it is as simple as seafoam in the gas tank that would be great; but I suspect it might be more involved.

rjuribe - if the oil pump is still functioning and you wish to keep it you may wish to check the hoses and clamps. I read a lot (no experience) about engines that fail because the oil pump becomes disconnected. Someone mentioned the factory used something not as effective as hose clamps - like maybe zip ties?!?
