Cougar 550 Engine swap.
Hey guys, hows it going!? how was everyone summer? who cares lol!? snowmobiling here we come.
Anyway I found a older style cougar with a 700 put in it, guy says it runs and goes well, I was thinking about putting a 700 in my sled, figured maybe I could use the engine brackets out of this sled and save myself some time, or maybe use some ideas.
Besides that I would just be using the engine, one question is , will there be room for the two huge pipes, Im not honestly sure, ill have to do some measurements, ,my dad has a 700 so that isnt a problem.
How will I like the clutches up, the obviously have to be centered, and I have heard about center to center, but how do you actually check it? that seems like the biggest obstical, second is, will the drive train of the 550 hold up? or will i just destroy my chain case ect?
thanks guys, good to be back on here. Im already ready for snow.
