    RXT repaired

    little story and some pictures for you guys.

    dad and i bought a 2005 rxt about 3 months ago it was a no start concern starter was spinning but engine wasn't turning over. so we knew part of the engine was coming apart before we even bought it.
    picked it up cheap and it was in awesome shape physically.
    get it home and start tearing it down to flywheel and starter bendix. found it was the flywheel bolts that where broken (common concern). so for a 20$ bolt kit and a gasket kit we started going to town and got it finally finished up last week.
    took it out for a ride this weekend. for the first 20 minutes of riding it wouldn't go over 45mph. but every once in a while for a split second it would jump up to 55-60, then slow back down. after rideing around for tose 20 minutes it cleared up and was topping out at 70mph on the cluster. we are thinking one of the plugs was fouled up. but after it cleared up it was awesome....
    heres a few pictures

    Sweet!!! Glad you didn't part it out!!! I knew you were thinking about it.

    Be careful with surging power, it could be supercharger related. If you don't know the last time it was rebuilt, that might be a winter project. Protect your investment and good luck. The valves... Well, you'll have to figure out how far you want to go.

    Enjoy your hard work!!

    Actually this is a different project ski. We are parting out the 2003 gtx. Lol what can I say my dad and I like projects. He owns a machine shop, and I use to be a mechanic. So we like to tinker.

    Yea we are trying to part it out. Don't have the space or need for or. Plus I'm not sure what parts from the 2003 gtx would work on the 2005 rxt or 2007 gtx
