    1200 XLT, trashed #3 cylinder......what else to service while apart?

    Long story short: We have a 2003 1200 XLT that developed problems, shop had it 3 times, went to a 2nd shop twice, 3rd shop finally got it running well. During all this time I got frustrated and bought a 2002 1200 XLT with 70 hours (60 year old couple, garage kept). That ski went down 2 months later (end of the summer) and my father bought 2 new VX Deluxe's.

    A buddy had a 1200 with no compression in #3 so we decided to tear them down. BOTH of them lost the oil line to the #3 cylinder!!!!

    So, now that we have them apart and see cylinder/pistons scored up, what else should be address before putting them back together? Both ran fine til this happened. We are adding D-plates, Power valves? We intend to continue to run the oil pumps as they came. There is tons of info on the site for "how-to" but I'm looking for a "what to do" list.

    thanks

    d-plate, wave-eater clips, new oil line hoses secured with metal crimp clamps (or switch over to Pre-mix). depending on how bad the damage is, you may want to disassemble the lower half to clean out the crankcase, crankshaft bearings, and put in a fresh set of OEM crank seals.

    Thanks,
    That's the same info my buddy and I are learning but wanted to get opinions from those more knowledgeable than us (which is probably everyone on this board!!!)
