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.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
