I checked the compression in both cylinders the other day, one was at 150 and the other at 145.
I also wanted to mention that out of the water the ski runs like a dream, no bogging or hesitation what so ever, it idles perfect. Could it still be a carb issue if it runs so good out of the water?
Also I am not sure if this is any help but the last time i had it on the water after cleaning the carbs for a second time, it seemed to have a miss when cruising at higher speeds (while at the highest speed it would go anyway, which was about 25 mph because it was not running right) any ideas on what this could have been?
The compression test was done after the 25 mph top speed, which is good.
And it is smoking which is also good.
I adjusted the high and low speed screws to the service manual specs, it was 5/8 for #1 and 1 1/8 for #2 on the high speed, and 5/8 on #1 for the low speed. The #1 and #2 in the service manual refers to each carb right? I figured #1 front carb and #2 back carb?
I am not sure what you are refering to when you say check valve for the fuel pump...is that the float? The internal fuel filters seem clean, and no i didnt check the reed, but i will now.
Also as far as the high speed miss. What screw would i adjust to correct this, or would this fall into the low speed adjustment that i have to try out?
I would really like to try this out tommarow and see how it goes, so if it is ok with you i would like to wait to accept and see if i have any other questions i come up with after my adjustments. If this is cool by you, i would surly throw you a bounus for all the help youve been. Let me know if this is fine and thank you very much for all the assistance.
