Hello all, Im pretty sure i posted in the right forum...
I recently bought a 1980 Ski-doo citation 4500 with the 377 rotax. Now this is the older model, with the regular silver clutch, and points and condensers.
Now the engine has 121 Psi of compression which isnt to bad,, But i am looking to swap the engine out, as i am going to make a project out of this little guy.
I would like to put a 447 F/C from a 85 Safari into it. the engine is port and polished. Its been upgraded a bit
is the swap possible ? Just pop the clutch off, Take the engine mount from the 377 and put it onto the 447? Or even a 503 maybe?
i want this citation to haul @$$, i am going to use it for boon docking and climbing hills. So i want the power behind it. Its small, and as about as light as you can get for a Ski-Doo.
Thanks for reading and i hope to hear from someone who has swapped the 377 for a bigger engine. I appreciate your comments.
