rule #1.... dont hydrolock a 4-tec
can't blame that on seadoo.. that's just user OOPS, sorry

That was caused by a hydro lock? Or it was run (after being hydrolocked) with a bent rod.

i'm sorry... i dont mean to start a fight or a pissing match...
that rod was hyrolocked at some point.. either you have no idea it was, or it took on water at some point, or something happened... looks to me it was continued to be run with a slightly bent rod, and eventually blew itself apart...
bad rods just dont happen on these things.. water.. even a little bit... is THE number one killer of 4-tec motors... and in my opinion, probably the opinion and many other mechanics here maybe, or maybe i'm alone! and trust me the opinion of seadoos tech department would be that's a hydrolocked bent rod
dont want to see one of the most bulletproof watercraft powerplants get a bad rap over one picture that was not a mfg defect in my opinion at all or just some fluke rotax motor failure.

aside from the rust marks embedded in the cylinder cross-hatch as well as the rust on the rod and on the crank... ie water was inside that motor once at some point
