    If it's seizing, you need to find the cause as in carbs or air leak.

    I mean that if the engine is seizing up you must be running lean. This can be carbs or air getting in somewhere like the crank seals, intake manifold, carb gaskets, etc..

    i rebuilt my top end at 135 hours but not due to failure but in the pursuit of more speed.

    they seem to last quite well if you look after them...i had a carb problem at 110 hours because i did not store it properly over the winter... but i know better now

    Like VOODOO said you have a carb issue or air leak somwhere.

    As for the question, I would say yes it is a reliable motor. How reliable though depends on how hard you ride the ski and proper maintenance. In my expereince the crank is a weak link, especially for those that ride their ski hard.

    just for the record, how long does a crank usually last in a ski ridden hard and maintained reasonably well?
