    Default Seadoo 587 Engine

    I'm new to all this jetski stuff, and I keep hearing people refer to 580 and 587 engines. Are they the exact same thing or are they actually two separate engines? I just pulled a white 587 out of my SeaDoo and need to know if an engine sold as a "580" will drop right in.

    Just a couple more things:

    The engine that I took out is pretty much worthless as a core - look at the pic below. I want to kill whoever owned the thing last - he sure did a great job rebuilding that engine. Any suggestions as to where I can buy an engine without having to provide a core / a shop that has a core policy that doesn't charge for the damages shown below?

    OR, if anyone has a running 587 they are willing to sell send me an email.

    Thanks in advance!




    And yes, those are helicoils you see in the cylinders

    Yes they are the same thing as long as it's a white, not a yellow.

    Why don't you ask SBT if they will take it as a core. You might be suprized.

    They already did, we can't use those cylinders.

    Well, I'm weighing my options right now - don't know if I want to buy a used engine that runs, rebuild a good core or get a good core for cheap and buy a new engine with a warranty. I am a car guy - I have problems believing the prices these engines go for . I can buy a running engine for my Taurus SHO w/ less than 80k miles, including all accessories and exhaust y-pipe with cats for under $400.... used 587 engines are going on Ebay for over $800 :emoticond. Sigh.....

    Few more questions - I realized my old 587 motor has an Ocean Pro head on it (after looking at stock motors and realizing all their heads were white.)

    1. Is it worth the trouble to install this head when I put a new motor in?
    2. Will it cause detonation even with 92 octane gas? It has spiraled domes on it.
    3. If it's worth installing, can I use a stock 587 gasket kit or does it need a special kit?
    4. Will a stock top/bottom end be able to handle the increase in compression?
    5. Will I need to perform any other upgrades to ensure the life of the engine with the OP head?
    6. If I wanted to sell the OP head, how much should I expect to get for it?

    You would void the SBT warranty if you disassembly any part of it, just FYI.
