    99 xl 1200 questions

    First I have way to many projects my wife says
    Picked up 2 99 xl 1200s today $400 with one single trailer neither one runs. OK one ski the engine is apart all parts are there the guy ibgot it from said he was told it was over heating they thought
    Pistons look good all the cylinders can still see the cross hatch hone in them. Is it possible that the over heat was the Exhaust if u put your hand in there u can move the cat around.
    Sold i just order gaskets and the cat plate and put back together?



    Not trying to fix this one just rob for what parts are needed

    Worst case buy a crank if the bearings are shot and put it back together. those were 155hp and decent skis for a family and bring good value when working.

    You made a mistake , should have taken PTO coupler off and flywheel so you can change the crank seals !! You should rebuild the 44 Ibody carbs , keep oil pump..just replace the lines! Jerry sells rebuild kits and the 1.2 needle and seats here on forums .
