1996 Tigershark Montego
In an earlier post about a month ago I was posting that I was going to buy a TS montego but not running. Went ahead and bought it anyway and great news. Runs like a top! Starter solenoid, carb rebuild, and some cleaning and she fires right up and drives great. Took it out on the water today for about 10-15 minutes and only have two issues.
1) The steering mechanism behind the jet pump is rattling. There’s one main bolt running top to bottom that holds the cone on as well as lets it pivot to steer. It is rattling on that bolt, are there any bushings that are supposed to be on there or no?
2) The bulge pump is not pumping water out while riding. I don’t think they are stock on montegos so not sure how it is wired in. I know that when I unplugged it and put it to battery voltage it worked fine but is there something that makes the pump come on while riding?
