    Thats what makes them so powerfull... Wave eater clips will do wonders for reliability... there are aftermarkets valve that are more durable.. then the next step up would be changing to gas valves....

    I would say get the wave eater clips and update the electric motor to 2003+ and you will be good.

    1 peice power valves arms are suposed to be 22.00 each, i dont know much about them but they sound as though they would address the failure issues related to the pv pins coming out.

    therer are also gas valves get around the pv issues but they are not so cheap..

    riva makes gas valves which completley replace the power valve system, they are better for racing and open water use as the pv's are prone to not opening fully when in these rough conditions...

    heres a pic of some gas valves on a motor i am currently building, they have the red tops on them just so you know what your looking at..

    A gas valve is a pressure actuated valve. It relies on exhaust pressure to open it. It is adjustable via the red adjusters you see in the picyure above and by changing the return springs. These have a different valve stem than the oem and are not prone to the same failures. The valves are much more responsive in the low to mid range unlike the servo valve which is either open or closed. Cost for used sets runs about $400 Wave eater clips or the SBT arms run about $20 like previously mentioned.
