    SC questions on '04 GTX Limited

    I bought this boat last summer with 137 hours from a guy in town that had taken it in on trade for some dock work. He rode it several months and said his boys preferred to ride in the boat so he was selling it. I asked about the SC rebuild and he told me the original owner's son had gotten a tow rope hung up in it and spent several thousand dollars to repair it and he mentioned something about rebuilding the SC but had no documentation.

    I don't care to be a statistic so I pulled my inlet hose (standard hose clamp) and tried to rotate that vein and it was tight and could only move it very slightly with a good amount of force. I noticed the throttle body hose still had the "Oetiker" clamps on it so then started wondering if it had actually been rebuilt. I decided to pull the SC and now that I have it removed I'm curious if there any visual way to tell if it has been rebuilt? Removed it spins freely and what I would consider normal bearing noise...

    Any comments, tips would be appreciated. Since it's already out I plan to purchase the kit and send it to Jerry for rebuild.

    Thanks for the reply. By the time I saw your reply I'd already packed it up and have it ready for shipping out tomorrow. I guess I can send Jerry an email to ask if it appeared to have been rebuilt or not.
