I purchased this sled last march and was told it needed rings and pistons. I finally got to take it apart. I found the heads had printed CR14.8 on them. there was some pitting on the squish band so I cut them on the lathe.
When i got to take the cylinders off I drained the antifreeze and pulled the PTO side first. When I took the cylinder off I found there was no ring on the pistons. same on the other side.
When I bought the sled he had the head off so I could see the cylinders were in good shape. I really don't now why someone would take a motor apart and take out the rings. I don't think there is any chance the motor was run that way.
I also found the bottom of the engine is full of antifreeze on the PTO side.
Is it possible they removed both cylinders at the same time w/ the y pipe connected. if so maybe the rings would not allow him to put it back together that way.
Is there a easy way to get the antifreeze out of the case. and should ithen flush it with fuel to clean that all out.
14.8 high compresion?
I have pics if needed.
