    Recommend local shop to replace flywheel bolts

    Hi, Iím new to the forum. Was wondering if any body lives in south east Louisiana and knows any good sea doo maintenance shops? I got burned by a dealer in kenner Louisiana and I am not looking to go back to a stealership. If I donít find a suitable shop, I will make repairs myself. Thanks.
    FYI: fly wheel bolts are currently fine. Just getting computer retuned and want extra insurance.

    Call Bruce Taylor with Xtreme Jetsports & Marine (504) 453-9912. He services, repairs, modifies Seadoo’s only. His shop is on Paris Rd right as you drive out of Da Parish entering New Orleans parish line. His shop is next door to Blue Dot marine.

    Did I read the ebay ad incorrectly? I thought ebay has them for $20 with free shipping to USA.. ? I'm sure the forum won't go bust over not selling 6 bolts...

    actually that's what I'd call ill informed advice. Irregardless of the price, You have NO IDEA of the quality of these bolts are

    and with counterfeits/mismarked bolts being common right now thanks to the Chinese, you want to buy vitals from a reputable supplier, like a set of ARP flywheel bolts from the GH store, not some unmarked hardware bin stuff.

    and while the shipping was indeed free, you do not want to try to save money on things like:

    flywheel bolts
    supercharger rebuild kits/service
    condoms

    it never turns out well. How do I know?

    I advised a high school buddy not to marry that stripper.
    He did it anyway
    That didn't turn out well for him, either

    I purchased those ebay (USA Business) bolts and installed them in my original engine before it melted a piston. The Bolts were still intact and like new when I opened her up with 140 hours on it... Guess i got lucky. I recalled torquing them down to 32 Lbft with red loctite. In the past i snap an ARP flywheel bolt while trying to torque it down to 32 lbft. I wonder why that happened?
