This car is not designed to tow any weight let alone a 800 pound wave runner on a trailer weighing even more. You will be towing over 1/2 ton. Possibly overheating the engine and transmission and you will have a hard time stopping unless the trailer has brakes. Not a good idea.

1996 Yamaha wave blaster 2 760 starter won't engage into the flywheel

Replace it. The least expensive way to do it is to bring it to a place that rebuilds starters & alternators. Last I checked for my wave runner 3 a rebuild was $60 & a new one was $340. Good luck.

Is there a sheer pin on the 2002 wave runner

To prevent the shaft from being damaged when the unit gets fouled it is normal to have a fail safe device either in the impellor or at the crank shaft end. IT may be a shear pin or a rubber bush in the impellor that will tear when there is a problem. Best talk to a wave runner service centre

What's the towing capacity for dodge caravan 2000? can't seem to find it on the net...

I've got an 05 model with the 3.3 and given what I know I wouldn't pull anything over 2k lbs a small utility trailer with a riding mower or a small 14-16 ft boat or wave runner would be the extent of it without having a heavy duty transmission, a seperate trans fluid cooler, and an elec braking device

This vehicle is not designed to tow. I would advise against towing anything with this vehicle. By the time you load the jet-ski on a trailer you will have well over 1/2 ton. Your engine and brakes will not handle this load.

Seat Belt will not retract on 98 Pre Runner

When you replaced the belt did you make sure that the position of the belt assembly was the same. A slight misaliengment can affect the return mechanism. Pull the full length of the belt from belt coil Slacken the securing bolt moving the assembly will most likely allow the return of the belt.
If it was an old unit perhaps a drop of WD40 will release the mechanism.
Hope this helps
