    Gasket Kit?

    Where is the best place to buy one of these? Looking so far, I've found SBT's to be the cheapest (by quite a bit), but I know a lot of people recommend OEM over their parts.

    I'm rebuilding my engine, replacing the crank, head, and piston. I think I need the whole gasket kit. Does anybody know what else I might need that doesn't come in the kit, if anything?

    Also, do I spray the gaskets with anything? I have a can of Permatex Hi-Temp Copper Gasket spray from when I replaced my d-plate. Will that work on engine gaskets?

    At SBT I can get the kit for $200 after shipping, and the cheapest OEM kit I've found is $375 after shipping here: LINK.

    Is it worth the extra $175 to go OEM?

    Definately use OEM gaskets - check boats.net for best prices. Coat OEM gaskets lightly with grease

    Sorry I don't have time to respond to everything immediately. I was waiting on an auction to end on eBay before I got back to you.

    I'm leaning toward the SBT kit. I figure as long as I coat them with something the chance of something happening is going to be slim either way. Not sure if I'm going to be keeping the ski for all that long anyways...
