my 95 waveraider was working great last season. this season brought many problems. first the 3 piston spark plug broke and i replaced that took it out and rode it for 5 mins and it died on me. it sounded like the crankshaft was loose. it wouldn't even start its just click and the piston were locked up. i took the whole thing apart and noticed that the 3rd piston wouldn't move and there was metal scraps on top of the piston. the cylinder wall was fine. i'm thinking i'm going to need a new piston where can i get one for cheap? thanks

Did pieces of the broken plug fall into the cylinder and cause the failure? You are very lucky if all you need is a new piston. Cheapest route would be if you can find someone parting out an engine on Ebay etc.

New parts for a rebuild can be found at SBT: SBT Jetski Engines, Parts & Accessories You may want to rebuild the whole top end while you are in there. It is probably due if you have many hours on it.

should i buy a whole top end rebuild or just get a new piston. also the crank shaft might be bent. the ski has around 350 hours in it.
