    can i get your opinions?

    hey guys, i found what looks like a 04 gtx for sale here localy for $1800 (negoitable). the thing is, the add for it wasn't really clear. the owner said that the motor works but wont start. says it turns over just no fire up. personally, thats one of my definitions of broke. he has had it posted for awhile. hes begging people to buy it cause he really needs the money.

    i emailed him for more info and am waiting on a reply.

    so, that being said, i wanted to get your guys opinions on both the 04 gtx ski and this deal. also do you think it would be a simple fix to get it running?

    i deal mainly with two strokers so i know nothing about these 4-tecs.

    thanks
    chris

    Maybe he sheared off the flywheel bolts. Or maybe the valve heads rusted off the valve stems. It's hard to say without doing a compression test, checking plugs, fuel pressure, etc... Ron

    that ski is worth more than that in parts. If it goes below 1800 its almost a no brainer. Just do a compression test before you buy.

    i thought about parting it out but i dont have that kind of effort. would rather have it as a running ski.

    So I guess what I am asking is, is the gtx a good ski? Is it worth my time trying to fix?

    I own a 04 gtx sc 185 great ski had no problems other than oil pressure sensor problems
    if it doesnt start check for water ingestion wilky on the oil stick
    could be a whole lot of things but i think as long as the ski is in good shape you can get a rebuild motor and have in it what is is worth!!!
