    Short block technologies

    Hello hulksters,
    Im new here and also a new ski owner. So heres the deal, I bought a 94 SL 750 and first jump out of the box it burned the third cylinder. So I found this forum and by the looks of things this happens quite a bit to the 750. So here is the question, has anyone bought a short block replacement from Short Block Technologies, and how did things go?
    I appreciate your time.

    Do a search. There has been plenty posted about everyone's opinions on SBT.

    Welcome to the Hulk Arky.

    Why wouldn't you just replace the burned piston or cyl?

    Do it yourself and save alot of $$$$

    You could put a new motor with all the same parts...Carbs,fuel system you have and you'll do the same thing. First you need to look at why it happen,do the updates,and then address the problem cylinder.
    Do a search for fuel system update.

    ditto

    welcome
    might have been lean on that cyl and putting the same carb back on itll happen again. plus you probable can do the cyl/piston right in the machine. unless you done other major damage(rods cranks case) thats where id be.
    good luck.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the replies. I dont think there was lower damage because the motor turns easily. I could do the top end work myself but I am a little shaky on the carb work. I will be looking into the fuel pump upgrade as I am sure the cylinder went lean from the looks of the plug. Im sure that it is not recommended to do just the one cylinder, correct? Also, I have read about the correct fuel line size? I am thinking about removing the entire fuel system and cleaning/replacing, any comments?

    Thanks Again!

    No matter what you do, you really need to replace the fuel line, pulse line and go through the carbs as well as the pump.
    If you don't want to tackle the carbs (most don't) send them to Randy at Watcon and for 50 per carb plus parts, he'll rebuild and make the neccessary tests and adjustments. He'll charge for only the parts needed, he uses OEM gaskets (not some garbage that doesn't last or leak) and it barely costs more than the OEM gasket kits.
    When you complete the install, don't forget the fuel return restrictor and verify fuel pressure.

    Watcon

    Thanks,
    Any contact info for Watcon. I am in New Mexico, can they install the correct jets for my altitude? It is a NM ski so the jets should be right.

    360-692-3492 (out of town right now) and he can get you set up no problem BUT you will need to make the final adjustments and verify you're safe.
    What is your altitude out there?

    Altitude

    We are at 5000' but our lakes are varied so most toys are jetted at 5200'.
