    98 GP800 engine help

    Wish I would have found this site earlier than I wouldn't be in this mess.

    Have a 98 GP800, power valve fell and now I have problems. Engine wise I can get a new crate engine for $1800 or go with rebuilt SBT or a rebuilt from PWC Engines for $1000-$1400. Obviously the rebuild is the cheaper route but is it the better one? If I go with a crate is it going to be a newer design or will it be the same from 98 and still need clips for the power valves?

    It's currently at the shop so I don't have any pics of the extent of the damage, we were just running around having fun on the river when it just died, tried to restart but only got a click, figured it was just the starter since the battery was fully charged.
