    Who's a good crank rebuilder?

    I'm looking for a reliable crank rebuilder. I'm on a budget and I'm not looking to race. Who would you recommend? I'm working with a Seadoo 787 crank. So far the lowest price is either Atlantic Jet Sports or SBT at $275 for a rebuild. Does anyone know anything about Competitive Crankshafts in Orange, CA? I think they might be able to do it cheaper, but I'm not sure.

    your better off buying a used one from someone parting with an engine. look through the threads, i searched some as far as 6 months ago and still found parts available.

    That's the one I'm going to get. If I don't end up with that one, then it's back to the drawing board. SBT is cheap, but I'm not real sold on thier quality. The block I'm working with was an SBT reman. They use a ton of black rtv in thier rebuilt motors! I personally think it is a little excessive, but hey, what do I know.

    do you have a carb or a rfi model? SBT cranks use offshore parts(china) and would not trust them. Atlantic Jet Sports they sell SBT cranks. He does not rebuild cranks.

    Another option is to get a rebuilt crank from your local sea-doo dealer. They come with a warranty and are rebuilt to factory spec and use factory parts. Retail on the cranks are 425.49 with your old core. that is a pretty good deal for a factory rebuilt crankshaft with factory parts.

    pm me if you want the part numbers.

    I didn't know that Atlantic Jet Sports sold the SBT reman cranks. That would explain why thier price is the same. SBT cranks use Nachi bearings which I have heard good and bad things about. They are Japanese, not Chinese. I think I might let Competitive Cranks do my rebuild. They charge $277 and Jeff says they use all OEM stuff. An OEM reman is a little more than I'm looking to pay though... Isn't the part number for a reman 421000076 or something like that?

    Motor rebuilds...

    What's wrong with SBT? I've recently ordered 3 crank kits from them, 2 because of leaking rotary seals and one with a shot mag bearing. When I got them, I did as I do all parts, checked the specifications before install. That was about 5 years ago. One of them, the motor has since blew up (he lost his oil pump) and the others are still running.

    I've bought their engines and upper rebuild kits and have had "0" problems. I can't say the same with their starter though. I've had to return 4 of them in the last couple years.
