    Click below for answers to many of your questions, and the Polaris service manuals.

    If you just need to replace the piston and recondition the PTO cylinder, the engine can stay in the hull.

    What you will need to do is check the condition of the PTO connecting rod and big end rod bearing. If either of those are damaged, then the crank shaft must be rebuilt, which requires sending the crank to a rebuild shop.
