DING DING, folks we have a winner, I was just about to post this. Turns out when your vacuum ports are blowing you are going to have a bad time. I took the old starter off my work bench and applied power just to make sure. I am going to shoot the shop that sold me the starter. They assured me it was he right starter for the year of the boat. I should have just order it from ski dim. I feel like such an idiot. Thanks guys for all the help!!!

Glad you're up and running.

Have a fun day and think safety...My rule number one - never leave the driver's seat without pulling the silver knob.

Good rule.

I remember the first time out in my boat we were in the process of changing skiers and I didn't realize that when I twisted around to grab something I had bumped the throttle into forward. Had a close call with a dock and I didn't even leave the drivers seat.

It's amazing how many dumb people you see on the lake. I watch a boat take 10 minutes to pick up a person in the water . I have a lake house on Lake Hartwell in Townville SC, and you see so many idiots out there. I give a safety briefing before I allow anyone to gets on my boat.

I think he actually beat me to it. He just didn't get to the keyboard before I did. In my defense, he did have a better view of the problem than I did.
