    1996 Hurricane vs SLT 700 engines

    Hi, Folks!

    I'm trying to help a guy with his blown up Hurricane, mag side con rod let go. He bought a SLT 700 hoping some of the parts would interchange, but it appears they won't, or will they? I noticed an extra hole in the cylinder on the Hurricane which is not present on the SLT. Importance? It seems to match the hole in the piston skirt. The SLT has 2 grooves in each of the intake ports on the SLT case, but smooth ports on the Hurricane.

    Is the prop pitch different between the 2 machines? Where can I buy an alignment tool? How important is the engine to pump alignment? Any handling parts available for the SLT?

    Thanks!

    What model year is the SLT?

    The engines are basically the same, but there are some minor differences, as you have found.

    What parts from the SLT do you plan to use on the Hurricane?

    This may be of some interest;
    Polaris Domestic (red) engine

    Exactly which ski are you trying to fix if ur asking about handling parts for the slt? Why is the SLT engine apart? You're confusing me
