You tossed the axles and the seat? Hate to see that happen. I bet Canadian Odyssey would take them. He has a couple FL350 and can always use parts.He is awesome at rebuilding worn out parts.

Looking forward to seeing our build.

If you didn't live at the other end of the country I would.

F me that thing looks like it would tip over if it even hit so much as a pinecone on the trail.
It doesn't look like it was ever rolled though. Top cage looks straight.

Well this is a first, im usually pulling apart sleds, but this time it was a golf cart, there was a 1998 mxz 670 Engine hidden in there, all stock never been opened, just the way I like them.

Just for reference for the guys that are doing a conversion with a 670, if you have a used running Engine, you still need to tear it apart and check it out inside, 99 percent of all 670 engines that I take apart are like the one in the pic, the crank spins inside the bearings, sometimes it is just one bearing but I have seen up to three, I believe that the crankshafts are improperly aligned (tolerance for runout is to high) from the factory. I metalize and machine the bearing seats before reassembling the crank but you can buy just the sections of the crank that need to be replaced. If you want to buy a used Engine and don't want to rebuild it you are better off buying a 583 or smaller Engine, it is quite rare to find crank damage on these other than normal wear

The 617 and 670 don't share the same bottom end, the 617 has more in common with the 583 than the 670, the 617 crank uses all the same bearings and rods as the 583, the 617 is basically a stroked 583, you cant put a 617 crank in a 583 base though, 617 cranks are usually good as in the crank hasent spun inside the bearings

What process do you use to metalize the crank? Could you post pictures?

So everyone is talking about the crank on this 670 and no one thinks it's odd that it's in a golf cart? :shock:
That thing has death trap written all over it! Probably did some great hole shots though.

Not odd at all! That's a weekend, couple 24-packs-o-Bud, and a couple buddies' worth of work, lol. And I bet that golf cart had PLENTY of "here, hold me beer" moments.


Great info on the 670, 'Manny. I've actually never bought a used snowmobile that didn't require some kind of overhaul. But then again...I'm cheap and I don't buy very expensive sleds. People generally don't sell perfect proper running toys for cheap.
