    I have a 2000 65u core that is locked up...the cases seem fine..sbt will pay 150 plus shipping...sounds like an easy way to go? any thoughts?

    I asked about selling them a Polaris motor and I think they offered 150. I can get more than that for a good set of cases. I am keeping the motor.

    Thanks for replies...here is my dilemma...how do you seperate cases from cylinder when all pistons are frozen?

    thanks mike but it was on hose and not running when guy winterized it and locked up pretty good,,,crank, pistons etc....which do I sacrifice? can I cut the rods if I take off lower? one at a time pistons may come out but not when all 3 are locked up

    Pistons might not actually be seized it could be 1 or a couple bearings that went bad and now nothing moves, had this happen to me. Took off the crank case and cylinders then popped out the crank and pistons and they slid right out.

    a good 2X4 and a big hammer will do the job.they may not rotate but i bet they will get free from the cylinders.

    Wow that's bad lol....yea I imagine a hammer and 2x4 should do the trick along with some penetrating oil
