It is just interesting to me that the oil made it to all the other cylinders and two years in a row.

I'm wondering if I might be able to tell if anything is wrong by taking off that valve cover and...

Yes, it is the #1 at the crank end of the engine. The PCV hose goes from the flame arrestor to the valve cover on that side (passenger side). There is a separate vacuum hose from the Throttle body...

Just to clarify, I'm not worried about it from a winterizing perspective. I did fog through the plug hole instead. I'm worried that my intake valve is not opening properly, or I have a blockage...

Fogging TBI - Oil not reaching #1 cylinder

When I fog through the throttle body with Marvel Mystery Oil, the oil seems to reach all but one of the cylinders. I know this because I check the plugs after shutting down the engine. Only one is...

I ended up having success getting my 7 year old up on a slalom ski this past weekend. He had been using the wakeboard and was getting pretty comfortable. Those repetitions very well might be what...

I remember going to the show and seeing a kid that was my age barefooting. I decided if that if another kid my age could do it, then so could I. A few days later my brother and I starting trying to...

I tried to get my 7 year old up on a slalom ski this summer. He wasn't enjoying trying too much so I said "want to try wakeboarding?". I'm worried I'll regret it someday because he's liking the...

I used to ski/wakeboard behind a '97 200 VRS. I'm not sure if the hull is the same as the 96? We did not have any porpoising issues.

The hull is a Maristar hull and is not based on any of the...

If there was a permanent slalom course somewhere on the lake, I was going to recommend hanging out there and sticking up the ol' hitch hiker thumb when a skier came to use it. Unfortunately, per the...

I used to ski behind a '97 Maristar 200 and then behind an early 2000's 205V.

To me it is pretty much a toss up as far as skiing. The Maristar's wake was probably actually smaller, however a bit...

Yep, I am on the same page.

My shaft aims to the left when I detach the couplers (picture taken with everything attached). If I pull the shaft back by hand, then the couplers are in alignment (the...

Good info, including how the motor mounts work.

If I wanted to try the bending-the-strut method, do you think heating the strut in the middle would help it bend?

Pic of strut

Here is a pic of the strut and shaft. In looking at it now, I can see the strut must be pointed too low as well as off to the side.

You can see that on the right side (from picture's perspective),...

I'm not sure that I get how the motor mounts adjust btw.

For the up/down, is it basically the large nut spins on the thread and lifts the engine up or down?

Or,

Is it the other way around,...

The engine isn't the problem. As the strut is now, the shaft is aimed far enough to the left that the shaft hits the hole in the hull (the log?). If the strut was pointing the shaft where it should,...

Regarding the first part in bold, I am first worried about being able to get the nut off of the shaft. Since I have Powerslot, the couplers don't separate very far. What you describe is just...

Oh, and the strut seemed to be aiming the shaft in the right direction up and down - just off left to right.

The strut must be bent at least a little and not sure about the shaft? When I bought the boat the prop had a pretty good sized ding, so I'm guessing the previous owner at least tweaked the Strut....

alignment questions

I've known since last season that my strut isn't aimed straight. I know this because it moves pretty far to the side when I detach the couplers. At some point this season I want to try removing the...

I don't believe that you had an engine swap. The fuel in TBI engines is injected electronically, it just isn't multi-port fuel injection. Not sure what the horsepower is on the 97's but that is a...
