    SBT

    Anyone ever dealt with sbc before? The remanufactured engine guys? This could be a fairly inexpensive way to get my project ski on the water...i need some feedback if anyone has any on this company...

    hi bud,i live in the uk and even ive heard nightmares about them,yes engine fail from new but from what i read about them they get loads of failed units...
    and customer care sucks big time.. again only hear say....

    good job law suits cant be brought to the uk ..

    just had a new high spec crank made and sent to the uk from crankworks, nice guys easy to work with and keep you informed, try them for crank services..

    personaly i would pm WFO for advice...

    I actually have an sbt motor, or shoulod I say what's left of it, in my polaris. The compression was low, the squish was way too big, there carb kits suck and the thrust washers on the crank were gone in about 60hrs.

    If you want an engine to slap in so you can sell the ski, they cannot be beat. If your riding season is short, like mine, and you really can't give up weeks waiting for your warranty motor to arrive, look elsewhere.

    also, if you plan on doing any mods, look elsewehere.
