Snowmobile Guru's
« on: December 10, 2019, 01:31:10 PM »
There is an add for a sled that in part reads:  "blown cylinder with rebuild kit has brand new track on it solid machine with a little work comes with lost of spare parts"

How hard would it be to replace the blown cylinder and or would you steer clear of this type of project?  A very non mechanically inclined person is asking!    :hello:

Could be easy, could be a nightmare. Nightmare comes once you open it up and realize other parts are toast

Unless its dirt cheap I would steer clear if you arent into lots of elbow grease. In my experience snowmobiles go downhill pretty quick once theres been a major breakdown. Its the top end this time so robably quick enough fix but it will become lawn ornament pretty quick  :twocents:

It could go either way... If it broke a ring or melted a piston because it was lean no problem slap a new piston and cylinder on it and go. If it broke a piston skirt and pieces went through the bottom end its very possible you are looking at a new crank maybe case halves too. Like others said, I would probably pass if you haven't done that kind of work before.

Two strokes, assuming this is a 2 stroke, for the most part, are pretty easy to rebuild, but not knowing the extent of what all is wrong, broken, or just flat effed up, makes it very difficult to give you any kind of specific answer/s.

Here's the add.  He thinks he just lost the rings, but he's not sure if there is any other engine damage.  Photos are a tad rough looking.
