Rode my sled up Ice Cap Pemberton, and of course my engine blew..
we did tow it for a while which caused more damage, ended up choppering it out right into back of my truck [cheers]

thanks, pemby is the province of sledding

After towing the sled for so long and living it there over night it had about 200lb of snow froze to it. it definitely was nice to have it load up like that

Last night finished rebuilding the engine and fix the broken peice and parts. its ride a lot better now. [36] [36]
went for a night ride with a buddy as soon as I finished, it was priceless riding in full moon. except the part we got the truck stuck in the ditch and shoveled snow for an hour

That's a shitty way to ruin a day of sledding! Skidoo should have recalled every '07 out there, I haven't heard of a single one that hasn't blown up. Even the dealer told me that the ones that haven't are just a time bomb waiting to go off.

Ya, '07s engine are ticking, but there never been a recal for all of them.

So far my new engine pulls harder than 2011 Etec 800. I got the big bore block from a stunt rider, I dont know what he done to .. it rips [36]
