    I know it's not a SEA DOO

    My friend was just given a 1994 tigershark for free. The last guy that owned it flipped it and when it was flipped it would not crank at all. My friends have taken out the spark plugs and turned the engine over. The engine will turn over now, but would not start. Now it won't turn over again. Any ideas?
    Thanks

    If it sat any length of time (longer than a day) with water in the case then the crank bearings are rusted and the engine is trash. A full rebuild is necessary. If you try to run it, the engine will throw a rod through the side of the case withing 2 hours of operation. It's cheaper to disassemble and make necessary repairs before running it.

    Thanks Guys, I kind of figured that so you think that the engine threw a rod and it is done for now. Just to part it out. Where would I post parts for sale etc? I guess he can't be pisssed because it was free.
