    yamaha fx140 motor problem

    I just pulled out the motor from my 2003 fx140, no piston left on the stator side,rod through the side by starter, exaust valves gone on same cylinder, I bought ski used, is this a common failure? engine had sbt sticker on block and I noticed some pitting on other cylinders minor, also crankshaft had what looks like hot spots not on bearing surface but on counter weight area,is this normal or was this a bad rebuild?
    are there any other motors that will work for my machine?

    If SBT engine, does it still have warranty?

    Unfortunately this is a common problem with SBT rebuilt engines. I have the remains of a SBT FX140 motor without the hole in the side that should work as a core (if you decide to go that route). I also have a complete FX motor with less than 200 hrs.

    PM me if you are interested.

    no warranty, previous owner did not tell me that motor had been rebuilt, but machine is too good to part out
