What size motor? I'm thinking not seeing it and in good shape no rips in seat or track about $1,000+ now for a 15 year old sled. You can check prices on the c/list as well to get a ball park.

to state the obvious, you need to start it up and run it, so you can truthfully say it runs well.   Then look at Craig's around the state and see what sleds are going for.  On a trailer so you could deliver it? 

Remember transactions like this are a cash kind of deal unless you really trust the guy.

maybe try a new plug... if you can get her running I'd buy it if you take 3rd party checks?

IF ya get it, pull those plugs, spray the cylinders good with WD-40 or fogging oil, flush fuel lines, drain ANY gas/oil in it, spray carb throats with some cleaner, and SLOWLY pull it over 4-5 times before ya really yank her to start it. Get it going, dump some Seafoam in that 1/4 tank of fresh non-oxy gas with the good 2 cycle air-cooled oil you just put in it....and let it run awhile before ya start revving it up..:grin:

that's all well and good Reb but if he didn't Summerize it last year it won't do any good.  The fetzer valves obviously got bent when he unhooked the odometer three years ago.  She did win a few of those Summer water skipping contests in Hayward a few years ago.  Took her a few dunkings to get the hang of it but after a while she was pretty dang good if i remember right.

let me have time. I want to grease it. I also want snow to run it to make sure all is good. but yea that can work.

 

reb,  I pull fogging oil in it, the gas was siphoned out each spring AND I have run nothing but non oxy juice in it for years!!!!!!!

by Spring are we talking June 18th or March 24th?  A lot can happen to Oxygenated gas in three months and that's probably why you can't get it running.

O cripes, was that the Women's Haul-azz contest, where the person that formerly owned it, AKA known as "Bodacious Bertha", came of the water so hard, with so much momentum, she continued up the beach, and clean thru the side of the Polecat Inn, smashing into the stage where Snakey Jake and the Squat-thrust Five was setting up?! I heard about THAT!

Ya, I bet those slides and bearings are toast, not to mention the the pistons in those scored cans. (No, not hers) Might be a major rebuild..,,,,,,,:crazy:

I saw that coming...sorry.  I'm sure they have multiple divisions that accomodate everyone.  I have a buddy with one leg and he drives a snowmobile like a maniac, he had one with a nitro button...no kidding.

I have a 2002 Arctic Cat Sabre Cat with 300 miles on it, no kidding.  Electric Start, reverse, and I drive it to the fish house and back about a mile each way ten times a year.  It's like the old lady that only drives to church that has a twenty year old buick with 13,000 miles on it.

btw-it doesn't start right now cause I forgot to start it once a month this Summer like my mechanic told me to. Lord knows opening the garage door at the cabin and turning the key would have been soooooo hard to do.

reb-  I thought that he was buying one too.  After reading over his OP he didn't indicate either way, so our mistake.

What I do know is the thing doesn't run :) and he may come to our house and try to kill us.

It seems that once Rebel and leechlake takeover a thread it's done!  May as well just dump the sled in the woods somewhere! :P

And, I really DID think he WAS buying one. That's why I posted the engine advice. (been rebuilding them since about, oh, '72 or '73, back when I was racing...)  Hey, admit it, we did get you guys to smile, didn't we? :grin: 

That's what keeps me going/gets me thru some days. I'd trade places to be any one of ya, but some things I wouldn't wish on anyone.

    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
    • Well there are a lot of ways to do it.   I'm going to bolt it down through the counter top, using the bolt holes for the leg levels. The idea of using straps and d rigs would look like dump and Be pretty pointless........it would be has much work having to ratchet strap the thing every time I was going to move vs setting it down on the floor. 
    • Yes it is a very good round.
    • I picked up a 6.5 creedmoor in a Kimber Montana last fall for a super lightweight 0-400 yard deer/antelope gun.  It is definitely the hot "new" cartridge in shooting circles due to the really good ballistics and low recoil.  And extreme accuracy.  I doubt the cartridge is going anywhere any time soon.  Virtually all the big manufacturers are building one now.
