Yamaha J500A Waverunner Jet Ski Engine Motor, 6K8, 061291, Japan

Product Details:

  • Yamaha J500A Waverunner Jet Ski Engine Motor, 6K8, 061291, Japan
  • Based on my research, this is a 500 motor, apparently used in the 500, WR500 and WJ500 Waverunners, I think starting about 1986 and running into the early 1990s.
  • This engine was brought into our liquidation store two or three years ago by its last owner as a good working engine, and has been in storage ever since (buried in the warehouse). 
  • It appears to be quite clean, apparently never having been run in salt water in that I see no oxidation to the outside aside from a bit of rust on one of the spark plugs, and with just some slight oily residue down low that cleaned off with a small paper towel. 
  • It came to us with the cables and parts shown attached and with the engine, and they are included.  I'm not sure, but it looks pretty complete aside from wherever cut tubing went (gas tank, etc), but please take a look at the pictures to verify for yourself.
  • It is a 2 cylinder engine with a starter and a small threaded output shaft.  I couldn't turn that shaft by hand, so I touched a battery charger's cables to the starter terminals to see if it turned over (charger was set to 12V 40A).  A few sparks later the engine seemed to have strong compression and it turned over several times, one or two strokes per try (I didn't want to hold the cables on the terminals for too long).
  • It seems to be a nice engine based on that basic testing, but it could of course have hidden problems or need some level of maintenance, repair or restoration, none of which I would know anything about, not being a mechanic.  This being the case, I am selling it as described above, possibly needing more or a lot work or parts.
  • I hunted around on the motor to see where the oil was added and drained, and didn't see a cap and a plug (just cut tubing), so I guess this engine uses some sort of remote circulating pump and reservoir type device that isn't included.  That being the case, there may be some residual oil that may come out of the engine during shipment.  I will try to bag or wrap the engine to contain it in case that happens.

A life of Jaguars: a reader's Jaguarography

Sat, 05 Jun 2010 00:00:00 -0700

Way back in the early Sixties, my late father had a series of Jaguar saloons. Firstly there was a 1946 1.5 litre which he bought for £12. To me, at 12 years old, this car was magnificent, so much so, that I wrote to Jaguar at Coventry, telling them so, and in return I received three spiral bound brochures (with tissue interleaves) of their current range.

EV car maker Aptera shuts down

Fri, 02 Dec 2011 00:00:00 -0800

Automotive startup company Aptera Motors, promoter of the weirdly styled, three-wheeled 2e electric car, shut down on Friday, saying it was out of money. The company said it was unable to raise funds from private investors that would have kept it going until it received a $150 million loan from the Department of Energy's Advance Technology Vehicle Manufacturing program. "This is a difficult time for everyone connected with our company because we have never been closer to realizing our vision," CEO Paul Wilbur said in a statement.

De Tomaso SLS / De Tomaso SLC / De Tomaso something else: More photos

Sat, 26 Feb 2011 00:00:00 -0800

The De Tomaso Concept is now the De Tomaso SLS Concept It’s taken a lot of years for someone with a decent level of backing to take on the De Tomaso brand once again. But octegenarian Gian Mario Rossignolo – former Fiat Exec – has risen to the challenge. The shame is he’s chosen a rather odd route to resurrection for a marque best known for combining American muscle with Italian flair – the crossover.
