  1. You have a message.
  2. Time to get this out of my garage. This engine was overheated, but not seized. The stator came loose, rubbed against the rotor, the resultant shavings clogged the oil pump pick-up screen. Oil starved, overheated, possibly (likely) filled with tons of tiny bits of rotor. Make no mistake, this engine will require a complete teardown. Once inside, you may find that it's junk. That is why it's free. If you, or anyone you know is looking for a (potentially) re-buildable engine ... just say the word. It's near Huntsville, but I could bring it back to Guelph or surrounding area .. Michael
  3. Thanks once again for the entertainment ..... I'm looking forward to returning.

    Season ender ... and then some.

    That's likely the only reason I'm holding it together ..... No kidding eh? Still having nightmares about that. Thanks SJ ... I'll take my time and fix it up, ready for next season.

    Season ender ... and then some.

    It is an ice ripper ... with additional studs. Purchased used in that formation. Hey Nunz ... hockey playoffs this weekend ... I'll be back up on the 18/19. Looking forward to the visit. Thanks WB ... you'll hear from me. Thanks STG ... it was an awesome season, regardless of the finish. "It is what it is" when it come to repairs.
  6. Took off last Thursday (4/2) and drove up to Cochrane with some buddies ... 3 days of riding on and off trail, lots of snow, and other than a few icy spots, damn good conditions for spring. Unfortunately my last riding day was brought about by a stud thru the heat exchanger .... looks like I have my work set out for me. If you know someone who can weld these things up while on the machine ... let me know. It'll be easy to get to ... as I'll be replacing my track as well ...

    Need Something for the Back Woods.

    It looks to have a newer style 1.25? on it now, its definitely not the same "conveyor belt" track it came with ... but what you're suggesting sounds fun. I dunno if I can accept that Nunz ... I waited all day, everyday, on my front porch ... you never showed. Promise you'll come out sometime?

    Need Something for the Back Woods.

    If all goes as planned, I'll be picking up my latest addition to the fleet tomorrow ... It's a 1990 Yamaha Enticer Trapper 400. Thanks for the help guys. I'll post some pics when I get it north. MD
