Massey Ferguson Ski Whiz

We have a Massey Ski Whiz that doesnt run. Its in fairly good shape cosmetic wise but not sure about the engine. I was wondering how hard it is to find parts for the JLO engines and if it is hard how hard would an engine swap be? Any help will be appreciated, I will try and get some pics

Those old Masseys were tough. I loved the looks of the 73-74 models. I would love to have one with a Scorpion pararail suspension slung under it.

Keep the engine cool. IMO the down wind cyl doesn't get enough cooling air, and with a single carb, you can't jet to compensate.

In case you are interested. http://www.snowmobileforum.com/gener...e-careful.html

Looks like you could probably clean up the pistons and be good to go. This engine is out of a Massey. You can tell by the engine mounts and clutch. Very easy to work on.

I would link you to the 440 JLO but I'm thinking about bidding my self. (;
