  1. Hi. I'm new to this forum and new to using a stand up ski. I just purchased an old JS550. I'm not even sure of it's exact year but I think it's mid 80's. I replaced base gasket and head gasket. Previous owner had it out and it stopped and said base gasket was all it needed. I got gaskets fitted, and engine starting. I plugged in the hose for a few seconds but didn't start the engine. When I did go to start it the engine bogged down. Tools plugs out cranked over engine and water flew out the plug ports. I reading that the engine should have been started first??? Head etc is fine. Owner promised it didn't overheat and base gasket was definitely gone. I didn't replace manifold gsdkets. Can anyone please help me? Thanks in advance
