    P0344 Code Help - Destroyed Plastic

    I received a P0344 error today. I removed the valve cover and found that the plastic cam gear is destroyed. The cam gear still looked good. Do you think it is safe to run without the plastic cover. I also tried to get as much of the plastic I could find. Is it safe to run if some of the plastic fell into the oil. What are your thoughts.

    Your crankcase won't vent properly without that in place. There is also a metal washer that fell out of that, and is in your pto. Running it the way it is wouldn't be very smart!

    Wow. That's a crazy failure. What year and model is your ski and how many hours are on it?

    It is a 2006 RXP. It was rebuilt with about 2 hours on it. The washer was recovered and is fine. I ordered a new gear and was going remove the plastic and put it on the old gear. Should there be a problem with that.

    No sense in buying a new gear.... it doesn't come with the plastic cover anyway. The cover itself is under $15 bucks.
