Well Eightpilot. Why would this motor do this damage in the first place?? I did not touch anything on that motor only to install it. If it didn't leak when you took it out, there would not be a leak when i got it, that's crazy. You were the one who said that there wasn't any problems. It did not even get to 9000 rpm and it happened. You said you got it from a guy Chuck but couldn't give me his number so I could get some info on the motor. Apparently you couldn't keep this sled from standing on its rear bumper so you may have come to hard at one time and done some damage, that is possible. I think there is a video out there somewhere isn't it?
I have also talked to guys who pretty much have the same motors and have lost o rings before and never had the problems that I had and they don't use any of this bars leak in them either. You never mentioned anything about bars leak until after i contacted you with the problems.
You think i have no knowledge about race motors,,,ahahahaha.
I straightened the rod the best way i could, what did it matter, it was pretty much ruined after blowing 2 o rings anyway. I took my crank to a crank guy and he told me the rod was perfect straight, so some people do not need the fancy tools to fix things sometimes.
So THANKS for the comment about my lack of knowledge, I would not go so low to say something like that about someone who i don't even know. I have been at this pro stock stuff for a long time and been around and helped with lots of strokers, so figure I know a little anyway, my pro stock XCR 800 have proven it several times.
SO, CAN ANYBODY OUT THERE TELL ME HOW I SHOULD PREP as Eightpilot says A STROKER? I bought a perfectly running motor so he says, so i figure install it, make sure it's not air locked, warm it up on stand, check gauges, cool it down again a couple times and give it a try. If i did something wrong there, someone please tell me....
So Thanks again Eightpilot, I just wish you were closer with your 800, we would see who got the knowledge......
