OK, here's the deal.
I bought a rebuild kit for my Ultra.
Rebuilt my ultra and about the only thing I could see different was the bottom didn't have a removable throat piece (it was all one piece). So i figure no big deal.
Ok, first problem, this rebuilt one would not sit on the bottom., it would touch and float over the bottom.
Turned return jets down, helped a very little bit.
So it must be more buoyant than the original.
Added some lead wheel weights (worked up to, about 12 segments not sure if these are 1/2 or 1 OZ segments) to the front and 4 to the rear. Now it at least is on the bottom and doesn't pull wheelies going downhill.
But it does not "move" like it used to. It will circle the deep end a few times, then seek out the stairs and get stuck there. The old one would at least work it's way out of the stairs.
And I know it is just me, but it seems to be drawn to the stairs like a magnet.
So my question is, would my original gear box be different than maybe this rebuild kit I bought have?
Any way to tell?
I mean the new bottom end, the turbine, gears box and main gear all fit just fine.
I just can't figure out why it went from a really good cleaner (before totally wearing out) to a crappy one with new parts?
Can anyone enlighten me?
