BINGO!! My thoughts exactly. For $500 you should be able to fix the cyl, 2 new pistons, crank seals and gasket set. Then you essentially have a new motor. Spend $800 and you are getting a used motor that you don't know the history of and how it was taken care of. If you are thinking you want to do a motor swap for a bigger cc, you might as well just part the whole sled out and buy one you want.
JMHO.

Hard to tell by that pic. I mean..if you scuffed it, you will get what looks like marks in it but its not. But if you can feel groves into the material I would get it replated. But if it feels smooth but looks like that...apply some TC-W3 oil and take a honer and do a couple of passes and it should clean it up some. When mine scuffed the cylinder looked like it had marks in it but it was just residu from it. Took the oil and a honer couple of passes and it cleaned it up. Good luck with what ever you do. But if you decide not to rebuild it..pm me a price for the engine.

Pilot, if you are thinking of rebuilding it I know a guy close by with a brand new cyl and piston for the 440 if you are interested. I can give you his number if you like.

Ultimatly buying a non-ves 700 powerplant would be my top choice. Even that comes with a dillehma. Ive allready got a xc700 that rocks. Aint much difference between the chassis on my 00' 700 than the xcr. Some solution will present itself. What I wont do is part it out. Thought about it but couldnt do it. Felt like putting down a dog you have had for years.

well if you decide to sell look me up and send a pm, might be interested if it is for sale at the right time and for the right price. anytime after june would be good, getting married on the 25th of june. I am not allowed to spend till after the wedding lol! like I said before, there is that place that rebuilds motors and sells them as a whole with a core charge. then you would have 2. can never have too many ;)

Found a cylinder and used piston in good shape from some guy I tripped on at e-bay. Cost me a $100.00. Got a deal on a set of new Cometic top end gaskets for 5.00 plus shipping. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=4630963993&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT&rd=1


Looks like I am going to put the old motor back together after all. Should have it up and running in a couple weeks if the ongoing projects on the new sled dont get in my way.

Too many toys. Ive got a fairly high reserve on it. If it goes, it goes.

The latest issue with the piston that wouldnt fit was depressing.
