Not sure what your cracking open to take a peek of? Take a pic of the boysen reeds with the corrosion on them? Boysen reeds are probably one of the best ! Someone else upgraded ,perfect! If they are in good shape?

The water pump I was going to open it up to see if there are any problems and the reeds them selves look good the plastic and stuff it's the mettle cage on ether side that has like white corrosion on them I think a buffing with a soft wiz wheel will fix them up I will take pics in a little bit here

Well... (dhridenh) the water pump gear is something that can be visually inspected,but the only way is removing it from the block . Then you can check to make sure the plastic gear is not wore to much & it moves freely.There is a weep hole on the bottom of the water pump ,this lets you know if the internal seal is leaking,(if the machine was running that is .)There may be signs of it leaking in the past, antifreeze stains rivering down to the bottom of the pump on the outside of the casing from the weep hole?

The white corrsion your taking about probably could be scuffed up with scoth brite pad ,depending on the location on the reed intake,pic would be nice.

If theres no sharp edges should be ok for the reeds.Personaly I would now finsh it with 400 to a 600 grit ,but thats just me. I'm not quite sure how you are adentifing that the motor has been rebuilt before? Fresh gasket? You meen along the two crank halves ? I hope not! that does not require a gasket ,just a special gasket sealer to mate the two halves together. If it is light gray in color ,could still be factory sealant?

yea it looks like a rtv almost its not a gasket as in paper or metal but yes. also some one has had the jugs and had smoothed out the exhaust ports on the 2 older jugs its very slight not really that noticeable but u can tell.
anyways i have cleaned the engine and sanded the pto shaft were the clutch mates to the engine. had surface rust.

How are the other two pistons & in the cylinders anyway? Any scoring on the exhaust , or intake side of the pistons ? Check through to ports,& down the cylinder walls . This corrosion thing is kinda got me worried for the bottom end ?

I Hope you'll be getting matching pistons Polaris OEM,SPX,SPI & Wiseco ? If the factory crosshatching is still noticable in the cylinders ,sometimes you can get away without doing a slite honing,but my recondmodation would be to order a (FLEX-HONE) ball hone spacific to that cylinder bore from Flex- Hone I think it is a 240 grit aliuminum oxside spacific for Nicasil cylinders.Go on line & you will find the site ,email your infomation & they will help you to order the right one Best 40 bucks I spent.

I'm sorry,my mistake it's (EngineHones.com) The product is made by FLEX-HONE . Click on for Nikacil hones aluiminum oxcide ,then go down the list till you find Item desription (2-5/8 FlexHone Tool 320 grit AO -169) Item No.# 258320AO .That will be the one you will need. It is for a 66.6 mm bore which it is a size showing (67mm) ,slightly bigger than your bore . Hope this helps?

Buddy...I don't know what to tell you that sucks ? There should of been a nipple to attach the oil line to the PTO side on top where you already have a hole .
