    Pro 785 help

    I have a 97 pro 785 and I recently got from a double trailor purchase,the guy through it on with the double trailor,he knew nothing of its history beside needing a top end rebuild. So I put it back together and it fired for about 2 seconds. Upon trying to start it again I could hear the starter turning but the engine was"nt turning over,but I could see the drive shaft having slight movement ocassionally. So i removed the spark plugs and tryed turning it over and after 3 or for seconds the pistons began moving. I dont know enough about the mechanics of ski to know what it could be,any help would be appreciated.
