    You need to keep in mind 2 strokes are getting harder and harder to find mechanics that know what they are doing to work on them. I know this because I'm one of them and hear it from every single...

    I'm fairly confident the check valves for SBN I-Body carbs (Power Valve motor carbs) are larger diameter than the regular SBN carbs (earlier non-PV motor carbs).

    Just a warning if it has issues beyond electrical and has engine issues. Very easy to drop $3k plus on a rebuild. SC probably needs rebuilt also.
