    Burndown

    Center piston obviously has a lean condition. Both pto and mag cylinder cooling jackets were packed full of sand nothing in the center one. Previous owner said he just put a new piston in the center. Not a standard it was oversized but he doesn't know how big. Also are these the stock carbs? Any advise is appreciated cheers...

    You will need to rebuild those carburetors, and check the jet sizes and adjustment screw positions.

    See my signature links for more info on servicing the Fuji fuel system, including the fuel hoses.

    Was there also sand in the exhaust manifold and exhaust pipe water jackets?

    Remove and clean the mesh screen and flow orifice for the water injection on the exhaust pipe.

    Engine is out. I can see some debris in the crank so I might have to split the crank. I am looking at the wsm piston kits. Any idea how much I should go over? My cylinders look good. I was thinking .20 or .25?

    Carbs look stock. 96 SLX?

    Your oversize choices are going to be .25 .50 .75 or 1.0 mm. Depends on what your bore is now. You should only go as large as needed when boring to get past the gouges in the cylinder wall. Need to measure the bore first and figure out what you have now......

    Yup! These just must be aftermarket flame arrestors. I am taking the cylinders into a local machine shop this week..Maybe I can run this thing before the water freezes!

    I see you are in Madison. John Zigler is just down in Janesville. He can get the machine work done for you. He is a great source of parts and info for all of us here.

    Ok thanks! I know of a small machine shop near Madison that I am going to use. He has been doing snowmobiles dirtbikes and so forth forever. But if something falls through I will keep him in mind. Is he the same as rockcountyjetski?
