Fixing a 1988 Yamaha Wave Runner 500 that was part of a pair I bought the previous season seen in this video:

  • Having cleaned the gas tank how you did, I would have thrown a fuel filter on to catch the rest, then cleaned the filter after test riding it.

  • A Wire wheel on a drill could have cleaned up that propeller & other insides would have helped it.

  • Andrew, I love your DIY attitude. Let's get fix that thing. But, Man, I cringe when I see you cut corners when reassembling dirty, crud ans corroded parts. Like that carb, full of rusted parts, or that turbine casing ad innerds. Geeez, man, a little wire brush cleaning on mating parts is a must, no ?? Come on, buddy, if it's worth fixing, it's worth fixing the RIGHT way ! I despise your sometimes "good enough" attitude. That's WRONG, young dude ! It's exactely that attitude that sank the american car industry (and other industries too) against Japanese and now Corean companies. "Good enough" does'nt make the cut today.

  • Andrew cheers to a good job of diagnosis and testing and resurrecting that wave runner. You are practical, hands on, straight down to it and focused. Very good qualities mate. I have a grounded wave runner in the UK, and I would like to know where to get parts to retire it. Will appreciate your help. urs4uk at gmail dot com.

  • Can't believe you put that unit back looking like that.

  • Andrew, did you ever think about organizing a boat and waverunner trial to the mysterious Bannermans island? I think, that would be a nice day trial goal, may be I buy a ticket.... Also you could help a lot on the island to help with their plans of keeping the island nice, are you buying a ship soon?

  • You really seem to know what you are doing with the older skis and I like the way you troubleshoot but I hate the fact that you reassemble everything without wire-brushing them and actually cleaning things up. You're just another slob mechanic that just makes things run...

  • Next to carburetor cleaner guy puts his parts in plastic bottles and things like that fills the ultrasonic cleaner with water puts the parts in a bottle with gas that way it doesn't dirty the ultrasonic I would imagine any plastic bowls would work just as good

  • Hammer and Chisel mechanic. Not the proper way to do it and for god sake if you just have to beat on a threaded shaft do it with a brass or lead hammer . Next thing you need to buy is a Press Bearings arent meant to be beaten on

  • Your videos are great and I’m impressed with your knowledge. Nobody here on Cape Cod Mass has a clue how to fix my inboard Yamaha Exciter Jet Boat . I don’t mind traveling to NY or anywhere in New England to get fixed, Do you have any suggestions or can you refer me to someone that fixes these . Everything is about outboards here. Thanks for your help keep up the great videos!

    • @Joel Brinkman I've been looking. Not much luck. There's a couple salvage yards I found that can hook me up. It'd be just cheaper to find a donor machine. One guy not too far from me has parts he stripped but he didn't take any inlet ducts from his salvages. So any parts would be useless without those.

  • I am impressed, I was seriously thinking what were you thinking in the beginning. I too loved the paper towel trick in the fuel tank, my first thought was you were going to use a stick or something to clean it with the towels. Awesome I would have never have thought to use air. I did learn a valuable lesson about using dirty tanks. I bought a 50 hp merc and after getting it running, gummed up the carbs with crap. Nice video!!! I am surprised they still have parts for this machine.

  • take it apart, clean, sand, derust and paint everything and then sell it. You have nicer machines and that would be a good starter runner for a young person. I guarantee you will never be satisfied with your amazing restore if it still looks like a half done job. Don’t you clean and paint your heavy equipment repair jobs. Sorry to appear so critical of a beautiful repair. First impressions last forever and that applies to almost everything. Every time you show that machine to anyone and lift the hood, you will say to yourself....”I should have completed the job all the way.” Once again....beautiful repair. Terrible first impression. I still love your channel. JoeB

  • Grease on the two New bearings..they looked dry. Where would they get their lubricant from? They aren’t water lubed I would think. Did I miss something? Just curious. Spent 30 years in the elevator business. We had to lube everything. If you can get that piece of well maintained equipment running again it will be the engineering miracle of the year. Good luck.
