Remove the pipe and manifold, bolt them together, and use the same type of plugs used on the engine to block off the holes in the manifold.
well damn lolPH2OCRAFT said:Javier, looking for a pipe and manifold to use, I happen to have both??
I guess I'm game if you are! Kinda heavy to ship so I figured I'd check before going through all the trouble!PH2OCRAFT said:Maybe it's easier to just throw on the manifold and pipe and see how it does??
Still overheating, even after a carb rebuild, cooling system pressure check (tested OK), bypassing the fuel selector switch, fuel water seperator, and nothing, still overheats.rgard32 said:Any status on this motor javier?
Don't blame you one bit. I consider myself a patient man, but I would have burned that thing to the ground long ago. So you tried a new pipe and manifold, and still had overheating issues? When you think about the cooling system, what could it be other than blockage? Its a fairly straightforward design.javiert99 said:So I'm done, and the ski is up for sale.. I give up.
I'm leaning towards timing, but it doesn't matter at this point really. I have someone who's called me a few times and really wants to see the ski today (although I have class tonight AND a pending hurricane, so it's gonna be a tough shot at a visit tonight), I have my fingers crossed. I truly think the ski is a great deal for somebody, at that price they can get the overheat issue figured out, maybe they can take it to a shop who will check timing better than I can, and have a great running ski, because otherwise the thing runs like a raped ape with the fresh carbs, etc. It starts right up now after the carb rebuild too.PH2OCRAFT said:Let's say the cooling system is fine, what else could have changed? Possible timing issues??
