    Rebuilt cranks from !*@

    My bud is thinking of buying a ski that needs an engine rebuild like what I'm doing. The main problem is his crank is shot. I told him about Sharp's Marine or Watcon and said they are reputable, etc. He seems set on SBT's core exchange for $375 becuase it'll be cheaper. Doesn't seem like I can talk him out of it.

    I honestly don't know much about them other than the whole PWC today BS...

    Is their work at least decent so my bud doesn't get scammed?

    They are the Taco Bell of crank rebuilding in one end out the other. And if there crank fails they only cover the crank not the damage the the failed crank has caused ie: cases cylinders pistons etc!!!!!
    Extra $150 now or $300 later!!!

    LMFAO...the taco bell of crank rebuilding. They use Grade F meat (but edible)...so that must mean SBT uses Grade F parts (but usable)

    I sure hope he doesn't need to see evidence as to how lousy their cranks and workmanship are, it WON'T last.
    But if he goes that route, why not just get their entire engine and then try to figure out why it lost speed or oomph?
    I mean, if you're more than likely going to be disatisfied, why not be completely disatisfied??

    LMFAO...I got him right here reading your responses. It seems as if you scared him away from the "fine craftsmanship" from SBT. You guys saved a soul. Congrats.

    Go-polaris.net had guys praising and slamming SBT engines. Some people here are slightly jaded about SBT. If your buddy is cheap AND lucky, give em a try. My money is with the Polaris seasoned vets on this site. So far I've seen $479 plus S&H from jetski mechanic and $575 with S&H included from Sharps. I've got to see what randy at Watcon is asking next.

    On their website, I think it's $600 for Watcon.
