Both cylinders look like this, do I dare use them for a budget top end rebuild? I can feel a couple with my nail, just under exhaust ports, this is after a light honing. Off a 2001 rmk 700, girlfriends stepdads sled. Was at the shop and after sticking $600 into it - a lower gasket leak was found on the mag cylinder, wouldn't idle under 3500. Told him hell, I'll throw in a gasket kit for you, bring it home as is. Well, I found this. If he didnt want to fix it I was going to buy t from him and throw it in my late fathers 98 xc 600 - his all time favorite. Id really like to get that thing refurbed this year, but finding a good motor from an honest person is tough to do. Atleast this one is open and I can feel that the crank seems fine.
