    Need power head gaskets

    Does anyone know where to get head gaskets for a 2002 polaris virage 800 i. The brain was bad and it sat for a year i got the emm fixed and back on now the motor is locked up up from sitting so i'm going to take the head off to free up the motor i imagine i'll need new head gaskets. unless any one knows any better way to free it up. Any help will be appreciated.

    Thank you
    Jamey

    If the motor is locked up from sitting I assume you didnt winterize it? I think you have bigger issues than needing a head gasket. Rusted main bearings and pitted cylinder walls dont play well with others. I would really check that engine out before firing it up. Just my 2 cents. Good luck.

    Before you do anything remove the spark plugs and plastic shroud that covers the drive coupler. Now you should be able to turn the coupler by hand or at minimum with minor persuasion with large channel locks. If the engine still will not turn at all remove the jet pump. It's possible the bearings in the pump stator are rusted up. If the engine now turns fine you're in the clear. But...... If the engine won't turn with the pump removed it means you have rusted crank bearings.

    Good point on the jet pump bearings. I have not been on much this winter so I guess I am a little "rusty", pun intended lol

    Once in a while. We get more ice and freezing rain than anything. However, last year we actually got a few good snowfalls. We do get cold temp into the teens but nothing like up North.
