    crank case vent not fully drilled open!!

    when upgrading the crank case fitting i noticed there was what looked like a half moon in the passage (inside the crank case). meaning it looks like 2 peices were drilled out but then one slid over so only 2/3 of the opening is there. Is this normal? I don't want to drill it out cause i'll never be able to get all the fallen metal out of the case without taking it all apart. any suggestions?

    There is no need to break out any grinders and drill the "casting/machining flaw"....look sideways at the hole with your head at the front of ski per se' while looking to the rear using a flashlight.

    You'll see there is plenty of volume for the OCMS crankcase fitting to take full advantage of, however, the stock fitting does not plus obviouslt it is much smaller....good observation!

    I got mine cleaned up a little by using a dremel and a piece of oil soaked foam on a string. It's do-able without getting any filings in the oil but it's risky and probably not worth it. See my link below with a picture of what I did.

    I agree, not worth the risk for no gain. I left mine alone.
