    motor lost power then stopped

    2005 RXT stage one, riva wheel, metal washers in sc, 175 hours ran all day today at 7800 at 2100 above sea level, was running away from a 05 gtx and o7 RXT, all of a sudden started losing power below 6000 and started to hesitate then just stopped running. No warning lights or anything. When hit starter just a wheezing sound and would not turn over. Where to start to find problem?

    Sounds to me like a problem i had a while back with the bolts that hold the stator and flywheel breaking and creating a mess and leaving me stranded.Im pretty sure other people with more knowledge will chim in.

    I would start by removing the S/C and seeing if it ate a bearing.

    I'm not sure what you mean by a wheezing sound... do you know what a car sounds like when it has no compression? Perhaps your timing chain is broken? That would give you this sound. The engine rolls quickly over with no compression.

    If the SC spins freely when off the motor I'd pull the oil filter out and see if you have metal pieces in there. I had bearings or something break ont he bottom end of the motor on my '04 Limited Class race boat. Lucky to have a spare motor.
