    Sbt 15f engine head does not have enough fittings

    Just received a rebuilt SBT 15F engine and the valve cover does not have enough fittings to hook up the hoses I have 5 lines and only one fitting on the valve cover. SBT says to block off other lines! Seems odd to me

    Tell SBT to FOAD or send you a new valve cover with gasket now. (Be nice and leave the FOAD part out lol. If it is an exchange you need same/same.)

    They sent you a motor or motor with a valve cover from a newer ski, the 2009 & up don't use those extra hoses. I have blocked off those on my 2006.

    There is a nipple on your spark arrest/air box where these 2 hoses connect to one go to. Make sure and put a cap or plug this. You can block them - but - I prefer correct replacement. You can buy caps from auto parts store and plug with them and use zip tie to hold them on. Or spend 50 bux for fancy billet covers.
    Yeah we should be happy...lol
