    The Nicasil falls off for two reasons: The first MSX series was released before the Nicasil was endurance tested (it was improved after 2004), and the rich fuel map from Polaris.
    It can be repaired easily for approx $400.00. I also have used blocks for sale for approx $400.00

    Regards,

    would this cause low compression? I'm wondering ...how can you tell if the nikasil is flaking off? What problems would this cause?

    thanks for the replys. i do have a really good nicasil plating facility near me (langcourt.com) so may use them. i may go down the new cases route (get the latest weber snowmobile ones)

    all a learning curve!
