    Happy with it? Good quality?

    Search forum, I remember reading in some thread how the SBT doesn't have holes for plastic alignment pins (or something similar) and broke them off when torqued up.

    Also that some people end up modifying the tool?!?!

    Sure soneone will chip in, but it's not so straightforward to do.

    I'm happy with it. But it all depends on which year / model ski you have.

    With my set there were 2 pump adapter plates. I guess one for the old and one for the 'newer' pump setups.

    But no experience with that.......

    I have a 2010 / 2011 so i had to buy a separate adapter tool because my pump is mounted on the rideplate....

    And the quality was good enough for me, the alignment bar was straight

    The end of the bar went a little difficult in the PTO adapter tool. But some sandpaper and 30 sec work it went in fine.

    I just put a little paint on the alignment pins and fitted the plate up, then removed it and after making a couple of measurements drilled new holes in the plate to fit over the pins. Only the later model pump shoes have the plastic alignment pins.

    The SBT kit only includes the 2 stroke pump plate, and the older 4-Tec pump plate. I'm not sure why their so far behind on adding the newest pump plate to there line up?

    The newer pump shoes with the two line up pins also use studs to mount the pump instead of bolts, and their much smaller. Just drilling two holes in the older plate doesn't insure that you have the plate properly aligned to the shoe. Spacers to go on the studs to make up the difference in the plates hole size are required for perfect line up. Or you could just buy the right OEM plate for the newer shoes # 529036224
