Here's a pic of the bad boy I'd like to get running again. Like said above it is a Suzuki 292. Would love to find a piston or even another running 292 for it.

Well, it is a Suzuki engine, you should be able to get the piston online from any of the retailers that stock parts for older sleds, or even from an AC dealer since that engine was used also in the mid '80s models.

So the Arctic Cat 292 is a Suzuki engine and the parts are interchangable?

The early arctic cat 292s were Kawasaki engines. Arctic cat switched to Suzuki engines for the 1976 model year.

So are they the engines and same parts as the 73 nomad? If they are then that could be my answer

Do you know of any specific models that used the 292? I've been searching but can't find any listed.

Can not find anywhere that those sleds ever used the 292 suzuki. Does anyone out there have an Arctic Cat with the 292 Suzuki engine? Would really love to get this machine running.....

I did some research on it also, and was not able to find it used. A 275 and a 250, but not a suzuki 292.

One place I used the ngksparkplugs.com site since it let's you search by engine, and the only 292 arctic cats it shows are the kawasaki's. Granted it doesn't always have everything but it has helped me before to find where other engines were used, it is pretty complete. Did show the 292 suzuki...

So sorry didn't have much luck either, can check a couple books tonight and post if I find anything.

Think I've got you on the right track, Erik...still will have to find the rings, etc, but the right piston's a start. Since I run one of these 'ol blisters, let me know if you should need more info. Happy to help if I can!

You should be able to cross reference the original plug # to a new replacement #.
