1995 Polaris SLT 750 are these OEM pistons or not?
Just picked up a 1995 SLT-750 from the original owner. The MFD showed 48 hours. Had low compression in the PTO cylinder so I dug into it. The first two are the pics of the PTO piston with bad compression. I see the piston is cracked. The second is the middle that looked almost exactly like the MAG. This is the first ski I am digging into. They all have W7A on them are these OEM pistons?
Thanks for the feed back.

Not sure if they are OEM pistons or not. Why do you ask? Were the heads properly numbered 1, 2, 3?
I have found with a crack like that usually from a sudden seizure or from hydrolocking, often times the the crank/rod bearings take some abuse. May want to look into their condition as well in that location.....

Thanks for the reply. I am not sure of the numbering on them. I am thinking they all had a #3 on them but I can look tomorrow. Checked the crank index and that was spot on but will take a look at the bearings tomorrow. I was asking if they where OEM because I was going to purchase a use OEM piston to replace it. I just like my stuff to match. So if it is aftermarket I would purchase one to match.

WSM pistons are reasonably priced and match the oem ones. Buy a new one.
They come with new rings too.

OK, Have the piston/cylinder back in and just have to install the reeds and rebuilt carbs.
Going to try to put it into the water this weekend with the SL 650 that I just completed the carbs and reeds on. Hopefully I can adjust both sets of carbs on each one.
