    What brand valves were they?

    I do not remember the exact brand but they were advertised as stock replacements that are solid. I got them off amazon I think. It was my mistake it looks like it was a two piece valve after it broke. Still haven't found the valve head it's probably in my water box somewhere.

    Why do people think because some valves work in their "fast cars" they must work in their jetski. You MUST run inconel on the exhaust side
