Well I bought a non running 98 XPL for a get deal. New motor 5 years a go the ski was not in the water for the last 2. Mechanic told last owner it was the bendix and everything should be fine. Wish me luck! Picking up next week. Any suggestions as what to do first? after i get it running F/A and outerwears and exhaust diaper to eliminate the water ingestion and jet kit for carbs... I'll probably be looking for a lot of advice.
