    Talking SBT Engine versus Rebuilding

    Hi all,

    My daughter spun a rod bearing on a 701T in a 95 waveventure. I haven't rebuilt a motor before but am not afraid to attempt it. My question is for normal recreational riding primarily by pre-teen girl, would an SBT engine be recommended versus doing my own rebuild?

    If the rebuild is recommended, then I have a question about my cylinder sleeves. Can I simply hone them and put new pistons & rings in the honed sleeve? The sleeves appear to be a good shape with only a few marks/lines vertically in the sleeves but no deep grooves or gouges, obviously if it is recommended to re-sleeve etc. the costs goes up considerably.

    Anyone know any reputable shops in the Lakeland Fl area if machine work is required?

    Thanks in advance,
    Beer Me...

    If it will hone out and you dont go oversize then yes you can hone it.

    as scot said..I'm not sure of lakeland area , but a good outboard shop would be able to assist you in rebuilding...
    spun a rod bearing? the 701 is totally roller and needles..if the lower bearing is shot ,you will need a new or reconditioned crank kit... these are "stacked " units, meaning pressed together with solid not split ends on the crank side...protec is close to you. they do excellent machine work, give them a shout on their web site
