    2008 SHO Rebuild Help...

    Attempting to rebuild my 2008 SHO after throwing a piston in the #1 cylinder—the head is practically unscathed, the crankcase assembly took a beating and is unusable. My question is regarding the possibility of salvaging the block and/or crankshaft—although I've rebuilt several of these skis I have limited experience when it comes to what a quality machine shop can and cannot repair.

    I don't think you can buy a sho shortblock anymore as it supersedes to svho block with a big chain crank which is fine except if you have a pre 2013 sho and your cams wont accept the large chain cam gears. That happened to me. I triple checked part numbers and everything was correct ended up having to buy cams as well - all for the better..

    Well, here's the thing—I don't necessarily need to get this boat on the water because I have a few SHO's and a SVHO all in perfect condition. However if I could get this ski back on the water without throwing too much cash at it then I was gonna sell it to a buddy who doesn't have a whole lot of money to spend on a ski. I knew it was gonna be a long shot to be able to get this ski running to be willing and able to sell it within his 4 - $5,000 budget. So if this block is indeed toast it's no big deal. I already have a couple SHO's parted out in storage minus blocks and I will just add to that inventory—so if anybody has a block to trade for any other part(s) then please PM me.

    You can purchase a factory new short block from Yamaha for 2600.
    It includes the new style crankshaft and the new style cam gears and cam
    chain.
    Bought it from Riva last summer. Put a used SHO head on it. Runs perfect.
