    Ultra 150 Can this be fixed?

    Hi Guys,

    I just picked up a complete Ultra 150 this week for $200. Motor was out as the kid had no idea what was wrong with it other than it "was blown".

    I tore into the motor today. All 3 cylinders are in perfect shape and from what I can see the only issue is with a crack/hole where the balance chamber is.

    Question is can this be welded? If so I'm going to be in luck, good friend owns one of the best welding companies around.

    It looks to be isolated to the top case, which I found one for $150. I'm not super knowledgeable when it comes to this stuff so any help/advice is appreciated.

    Yuck! Looks like burial at sea or something... Surely it got water on the inside, too.

    I'd replace the case halves, they're matched.

    Thanks. I'm contemplating either fixing it or parting the whole thing out. I got the ski for $250 and its in overall good shape.

    Just have to split the case and take a look. I should be able to inspect it today.

    looks weldable to me..but on the other hand, it can't be welded as it sits..strip down and blast it clean first.

    could be some issues of the balancer shaft gear broke a tooth and that is what spit the case..then it might be best to replace the cases..such a deal too!

    Well thanks for the info guys. I'm going to part it out, make some money and buy a running ski. Really wanted an Ultra as I had one YEARS ago but I just don't wanna mess with this.
