Advice Required spark plugs rusting
« on: January 11, 2017, 08:24:07 PM »
Hi,
what is the main cause of spark plugs rusting into the engine ?  Is it common on new skis that are serviced on schedule ?

Thanks for that.
The ski is in getting its 50 hr service and the owner of the dealership where it was purchased rang me to tell me that they cant get the plugs out because they are rusted into place.....one has even broken off in their attempts to remove it.  Its only ever been serviced by them and they changed the plugs about 12 months ago at the 25 hr service.... 

Its had no roll overs since before the last service and is meticulously flushed and rinsed after every day out on the water....

The owner did say it was probaly due to no one putting "never seize" on the plugs when they were last installed.  I told him it was them that last serviced it as per the log book, and he then started saying that he only gave me the plugs and didnt install them back then.. mmm I dont think so sonny....

Alarm bells are ringing in my ears right about now.....

Yes lack of antisieze, not heating up the motor before extraction and water getting in from no grease around the coils are is the most likely culprits there.


We use several methods to prevent this happening and have never had a problem.



All service schedules specifically run to hours and time frames. -This is why.


Hopefully your back on the water soon  blma
