    Hi Matt, glad to see you here as well. The boat is actually at a place for a new cover. I take it back next monday. Then, I need to change engine and transmission oil, filters, polish hull, and put it in water. Maybe half of next week. Then it's begining of wakeboarding this beast.
    I will take photos and videos of our tricks.

    Stay tuned

    You were right guys, today I start the engine. No problem of temperature, when the thermostat opens, water enters engine. It runs just perfect at idle, but impossible to rise RPM !!! I tried with Choke and disconnected choke, nothing to do.
    But I'm afraid to open the carburetor. The risk is to never start again ... I try to find litterature on it.
    Also, idle is arround 600rpm, the alternator does not charge the battery. But I remember on the friend's X35, no charge at idle, it needed to be arround 1000rpm to start charging. So, I will wait that the engine runs perfectly before deciding to change the alternator.

    Idle should be around 850-900. Go ahead and get a carb rebuild kit. It's easier than it looks and you'll eliminate a lot of possibilities by rebuilding it now.

    Yes I start to look if I can get a rebuild kit directly in France (because of delay and cost of shipping). But I'm more afraid about retune it after changing parts. As I will clean and remove every srew, I think a retune will be necessary. That procedure if for me the big problem.
    I keep you in touch. As it's raining and it will all the week, I can't start it again till next week. I would like to make a movie and share it before doing mistakes.

    Hey guys,
    On the carb (on the choke plate's body) I can read this reference : "LIST-80262".

    I rebuilt the carb. It's not so complicated and there are not that much tuning to do on it. But it was still running bad. So I did something elementary (I was so stupid to don't start frome here), I remove spark plugs to check. They were full of oil and dirty. I clean each. Now it runs near perfect, maybe a little accelerator pump tune, but I will do it on water.

    It's alive !
