Not mine, belongs to my bud ( catfish ). took it on to pay my debt he paid to get my hood fixed, which was $ 450.00 bucks to fix the dent and paint the hood. where can you beat this deal for some body work ?..lol. not gonna give it the shadetree over haul, just gonna fix the engine, bearings, seals, brakes, clean the carb, thats all i plan on doing. he won't spend the money to fix it like new, not like i would !..lol. so just a '' light over haul '' is all i am giving it.

well this project came to a speeding halt !. here's a couple pic's, one is the underside of the head, other is the carb. the carb is toasted !!. crank is shot from bad rod. and catfish does not want to spend the cash to replace all the important parts, sooo..now i stop working on it. just a reminder to all you mud and water riders ?..this is what happens when you go deep !!!!!.

Dang!

 

I saw a guy at an off road park this weekend go in to a lake tentatively. Tank was half deep in water. When we came back, he was getting pulled out. I was like 'the infamous swamping'...

on another note: took the cylinder, crank to our local machine shop ( catfish's bud ), he now has these to bore the cylinder, fit a piston kit to the cylinder, press a new rod on the crank. i have parts ^^^ already on order, will spend some time cleaning the engine cases/parts up best i can while i wait for the crank and cylinder/piston kit. still need to order a complete engine gasket kit, complete engine oil seal kit.

now placed order for choke cable, ignition switch, some body parts for the oem snorkel, oil temp sensor, and new cam chain, i'm done with parts for now. decided ( always go with my gut feeling ) to replace the cam chain seeing how i am doing all new engine parts ?, cam chain prob could run ?, but i don't like taking risk when i got the engine torn down !.

for all you outlaws waiting on updated pics ?, i've been busy with other stuff around the house, and at catfish's place. i have the engine completely torn apart, now i just need to start cleaning cases/sections up, i got a little done the other day, but no where near what i should have done by now. its a slow process when your dealing with a sunk atv !. some parts show to be here today ?, but not what i need to put the engine back together. no word on crank work or cylinder ?, so i got time to get stuff cleaned up it seems. i'll post pics as i move along, but for right now, its just slow on this build.

Wow. 

 

So where it keys into the motor it sheared the shaft... that's some pretty serious torque. 

 

Was riding with a buddy the other day and we got to a large puddle in the road (couldn't drive around)

He wanted to blast through the water and I just decided that was far enough lol 

Water and mud are not friends of mine
