    you can check out the forum market place rules here http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/misc.php?do=showrules

    for part outs, you usually make 1 thread for the whole ski, people will post what they want by calling dibs on that part. then you should make a post with a list of who wants what just to keep some organization. I believe the rules mention this but you need over 25 posts before you can sell anything

    welcome to the hulk!

    Hi , the ski is standard , I am not mechanicaly minded but I will try to explain the damage, the piston casing has a hole in it where something from the rod or piston has came through , the crank shaft is damaged as is its casing and the head is scrap metal now.

    Best way to part something out is to take everything completely apart. Take a picture of each item you are selling, list everything you are selling with details and a price.

    Here is how I parted out my GPR http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...hlight=parting

    Dang, sorry about your troubles. Can I ask how you got a hole in the case? You don't see that very often on a newer Yamaha engine.

    As I say I am not good with engines but I was told the rod that pushes the piston has a pin or something connecting them , it was this part that has failed and came through the engine.
