    New member, PRO 785

    Hello all,
    I'm new to the forums here, as I've posted in the general discussion forum.
    I have a 1999 Pro785, and it's pretty much dead. Some nice folks here on the forums have offered me some help with rebuild. So far, the rods are ok, and the Crank has been remanned with new bearings. I spoke with some guys at HotSeat and they've got a piston set available. I"ve found a place to re-Nicacil plate the cylinder jugs. Anyone have any other pieces parts left for a 1999 Pro785? I definately need a head, oil injection gear, etc. Any asdvice / help is apprecaited. This thing is a pain to work on compared to my old SL750 & SLTX. The gentlemen here that tore into it confirmed this for me. I had the carbs off it once and that was a headache and a half

    Thanks for the kind words and info. I'd love to ride a PRO 1200. I hear they have good torque but are not as fast or quick as the 785's.
    Well, I drug my PRO home lastnight with the motor in boxes becasue I can't afford 7k at the Mechanic's shop. He knows my old boss so he decided to work on it, but won't wrench on any other Polaris'. I am going to collect parts for it on here and through other avenues if need be, then give it back to that shop and let him put the motor in. He and I both found out that you can not put the engine together, then into the ski because of the exhaust-it must be assembled inside the ski. That's more than I can handle at this point in my life.

    Does anyone have experience using steel sleeves with this engine? I know they are Nikasil plated aluminum, but boring them and having steel sleeves would make it a lot easier to repair if something goes wrong again. I just really hate to pay the $ to have custom sleeves made.
