Hi, Just joined the forum today. I am the proud owner of my first SeaDoo. It's a 95 SPX and I got it cheap enough to not mind that it had a blown motor, that had also been evidently used in salt water and not maintained very well. Started taking it apart and all the head bolts broke off- even after repeated soaking with penetrating oil. Got the head cover off (finally) and now can't get the head off...I think I'm just gonna buy a rebuilt motor and drop in it after slvaging as many parts as possible.

Here's my question- where's the best/cheapest place to buy a motor (657x)? and what is the difference between a 657 and a 657x? (except a hundred bucks or so...)?

Oh, and I'm in Northern Alabama.
