    I take it your not serious about the bearing. I`d say your looking at a new Crank and definitely a new Rod.When the metal goes blue from the heat they`re toast.Had a very similar thing happen to my engine a while back and had to replace both.It was caused by the oil pressure relief valve sticking.

    HOSS, i tried synthetic last week that is supposed to be formulated for wet clutch applications and i had a problem with slipping. I went back to the Seadoo mineral "over priced" oil and my slipping problem went away.

    I figured i would try the Amsoil synthetic. Didn't really work out for me though. 8700 RPM's and the clutch would slip with it. Put the seadoo oil in it and the slipping went away.

    yeah, jokeing about the bearing, the rod is shot for sure. I'm hoping that the crank can be fixed. It looks like it is not scared to bad mainly the bearing sticking to the journal surface. I'm going to try and have it re-surfaced. That is interesting about the oil valve sticking....I need to take a closer look.

    Stickem may have a crank for you if necessary. He's got a broken case motor that fell out the back of a truck

    Lawracing: sorry to see that bro!, what rpm`s were you turning before that let go?...PR...

    Jerry: I could understand why Amsoil didn`t work for you, 8700 R`s at the crank is alot, the Sc must be screaming! ...PR...

    why dont everyone just use the Seadoo oil like the dealers recommend, is it because they are just dealers
