Just bought a 1992 Prostar 190 on eBay, my first MC, and will be picking it up this week. end of the season here, but have a good mechanic to replace seals and winterize. Serious slalom, not much wakeboard, but pumped to own a MC after skiing off a Four Winns tub for a long time.

Any suggestions appreciated for engine overhaul and accessorizing....

Looking at the pics of the motor and wondering what is all the pink stuff on hoses, carpet, etc. Is that steering fluid? Mold? Picking up the boat Monday and would rather not have any surprises....

My brother in law picked up some weird orange gunk on his new Ranger this year in Canada. It was strange - is really was able to stick well to the gel coat.

I bet it's a type of mold... IMO - if it was ATF I believe it would be much darker and can't think how it would get on the hull.

Not sure what to make of the pink. On the outside I could see some bleed from the red cover as a possibility. No big deal if it is on the gel. It would buf out. If it is on the upholstery that might be another story. The pink on the hoses and the flame arrestor cover makes me think some kind of spray wax was used unsuccessfully on the engine. Without seeing this in person it would be pretty tough to determine.

Just called the owner...he's stumped as well. Says there is no pink stuff, so we'll see on Monday. Hoping it's just the camera flash, but it sure looks like something sprayed all over the inside of the engine compartment....

I have seen some strange camera effects show up in the past. I wouldn't lose any sleep over it if he says it's not there.

When do you plan to go get it? I bet the clock keeps moving slower.
