Wrong.. I guess none of you have had a motor in pieces. I found out today that indeed they are PRESSED together in a jig for accuracy. with the rods & bearings in place. Something you can't do in the basement. So I'm getting a quote from the local shop here, who will send it away to the special place where cranks are their thing...this is gunna cost me. But hey I'll get a totally rebuilt motor...
As I've been looking over all those wonderfull parts...I was trying to figgure out the water cooling thing. This is my first encounter with a PWC so the way they work things out is all new. Someone was posting and asking if they could run the motor out of water... The whole thread went south.. I too did not know what to say. So I was tracing the flow of water...the best I could. I could find the intake fitting on the front of the motor, near the top by the exhast manifold. But I couldn't find an exit.:dunno: Then it came to me at work today..its the exhast! the darn water goes into the exhast and out the back..duh! So yes it's possible to adapt a garden hose to that fitting and run the motor.. And I will do just that if I get my motor running..
