    carb msx?

    Hi guys,i know some have put sd engine into a msx hull,but how hard would it be to convert a msx 140/150 into a two stroke carbed 1200? reason being that msx 140 are quite rare now in the uk,but i've got a polaris 1200 engine(needs work)in my garage....

    If you have a 2 stroke 1200 non MSX motor the swap will be relatively easy and straightforward, as long as you are starting with an MSX 140 and not a 150
    All of the electrics would have to come with it as well. Converting an MSX motor to carbs requires expensive and rare cylinder head parts. You would also need to adapt the fuel tank pickup.
