Last year the timing chain in one of the motors in my Yamaha jet boat broke And I decided to exchange my core with a new one from short block technology. This was a terrible mistake the remanufactured motor that they sent me blew up within minutes from internal bearing failure and overheating, it ruined the oil pan when the rod went. They covered the motor but I had to pay shipping back to Florida that I was never reimbursed for. And I was also accused by Cliff Watkins the sales manager/warranty guy of sending them some other motor that wasn't there's. Smh! So the second motor arrived. Got it installed and it sounded like it was knocking right away too. Ran the boat for a day and sure enough it got hot and sent a rod as well. This time ruing my starter, oil pan, generator cover and other misc external parts on the motor. Again totally there fault with installing the bearing incorrectly. I had to pay for the parts that got ruined by there faulty motor but they covered the block again. I waited a few months for the 3rd motor to arrive. Cliff Watkins would tell me lies like the new motor would be all oem parts and this wouldn't happen again. This time I had A local motor builder take the motor apart and he assured me that the bearings were plastigauged by somone with no care at all and once again the motor would have blown up. And none of the parts were oem like I was promised by cliff. Do not trust sbt. The worst company I've ever dealt. My summer was ruined because of there very poor work they did on the motors they sent me. I regret doing business with them
