    2001 virage tx

    So i have been trolling the site for many weeks now and just purchased a 2001 virage tx and need some help. I paid $300.00 for the ski with a blown piston and am about to attach the rebuild. Question that I have is about the cyclinder. The ski has lived in salt water and it looks like the previous owner leaned it out and overheated all of the cylinders until one just took a crap.

    When i pulled the cylinders off, i noticed that where the top of the sleeve meets the water jackets, there are small pieces of the water jackets that are chipped off. Can some one look at these photos and let me know if i could just clean up the cyclinders with a new bore and not worry about the damages?

    I wouldn't want to use them. You might get away with it, or you might not.

    The risk is that you invest time and money in the rebuild, then have water or gasket leaks that cause problems or further damage. You could end up rebuilding the engine again.

    A properly rebuilt Polaris engine can last for hundreds of operating hours. Do the job properly, and enjoy it for years.
