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.

    •   No expert here either but I've talked to a couple.    Would your new, expanded slab be conducive to making the addition another zone or zones?  You could maybe run that expansion off different lines from the manifold above the slab so you don't have to route and pour over seams.   Definitely insulate below with GOOD insulation.  As mentioned, heat doesn't really rise the way we think it does; it moves to the cold and the earth will soak it up.   Heating your loop would be cheapest with a natural gas fired boiler, propane second.  Geothermal is expensive to put in so your payback on a new system is long.  Air source heat pumps are great until it gets really cold.  In the end, radiant in floor is the most efficient way to heat, but yes, it's slow to respond.  But if your toes are warm, you will be too.
    • I appreciate the response, I take nothing personally and didn't mean to be snippy in my reply. There are a lot of great comments on here and I will keep you posted on what I decide. Thanks again. 
    • Ice is quickly thinning on those northern lakes that still have ice with dangerous conditions on most lakes. The Wisconsin River is now open even in its northern stretches, but ice chucks can be seen melting along the river's edge. The lower Wisconsin River has finally dropped to near normal levels. Some walleye and brown trout are being caught on the Menominee River both trolling and angling from shore. Low water and cool water temperatures slowed the walleye run so far on the Oconto River. Anglers along the Wolf River have been starting to catch walleyes. A few sturgeon have been seen along the Wolf River, but warmer temperatures are needed for the sturgeon to start their annual spring spawning run. Walleye and sauger action on the Wisconsin River and Lake Wisconsin is slowly picking up.The steelhead season opened on the lower stretch of the Brule River last weekend and anglers reported good successPhoto Credit: DNRSpring steelhead fishing opened last Saturday for the lower stretch of the Brule River and there were lots of fishermen and fisherwomen on the river many who had a successful opener. .
    • I apologize if that came out wrong. The idea might very well be the best route to go. It's just that over the past 25 years or so I have seen many attempts to save a dollar that cost a buck and a half to do lol.    Here are my two cents. If you have a slab and you want to pour on top of it while keeping the same footprint that sounds pretty doable and could probably save some money if you don't have to change drain lines, run water, heat runs, electrical etc into the slab.   If you intend to tie into the existing slab and run zones of pex across the joint and have the new and old floors end up at the same elevation it still can be done. Some contractors will not want to mess with tying into and raising the elevation of the slabs and will prefer to start from scratch especially if you as the homeowner want them to warranty the finished product.  The critical thing would be to use enough rebar drilled into the old slab and have enough compaction and sufficient footings to make sure the slabs stay where they are without settling. That would make all kinds of problems with the pex.    Hopefully that response came across better.
    • It'll be interesting to see if the team plays a little harder in front of a different goalie. 
    • Hawg, I'm with you on this one !
    • Check and see if you have a video output on you device. You may be able to record to a digital device.
    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
