Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum, but a long time reader. I just got a 1996 1100 ZXI. The engine was in pieces when I accquired this pwc. Did a top end kit and get great compression on all three. 150psi per.

I get fuel
I get spark

I can't seem to get it to start. It just backfires.....Could this be a sheared key or......

No gauges seem to work.....any ideas ?????

BTW is there a good way to remove the flywhell cover w/o removing the engine. i have the oil pump off.

Thanks in advance to any help on the topic. Also if you have a good search tip for this site I would appreciate it.

Thanks again:dunno:

i have a 96 1100 and did a top end rebuild and the gauges also didnt work when i tried to fire it up. They only work after the engine is actually running
