It's a start!
Both were running at time of purchase. Unfortunately I had not done my homework before purchase. Skis both had about 130 hours. I bought them on Saturday and was on the lake Sunday, ski #1 ran great until something broke with the impeller, ski revs but doesn't move. Ski #2 ran ok until it would not start without constant manipulation of the choke. Ski#1 is on the trailer while I work on ski#2 as it was more of a major issue though I plan on rebuilding both engine. I was unaware that both oil pumps had been removed so I plan on reinstalling the pumps with rebuilt lines and going back to stock. The pumps don't fail, its the hoses and zip ties that fail. I don't want the hassle of premix.
Picked up a cherry picker from HF, a sling, and built some redneck rollers for the garage. Couple pics below.
