Good? Great! I'll put that $250 back in my wallet for now. I might come out of this relatively unscathed and maybe a little smarter.

I'll go over the piston and make sure there aren't any cracks/chips/deformations etc before I check that one off the list.

If a new liner is available from Munn then that might be the cheapest route, especially if I can find another 25% off sale. It might be quicker too, it sounds like 3 week turnaround on Nikasil should be expected.

No concerns about running a new liner with a used piston?

Rainerio, do you mean the 3rd photo from page 3 (engine case), or from 1st post on page 1 (cam followers)?

25 years ago I drowned My 400 Husqvarna two stroke it went a 100 meters under water fast running water. Only bad thing to it was both foot pegs got rip off. After removing water from the tank and engine. left water in gearbox till I got back. 4 kicks to start it. Haven't had a problem with it only in last 5 years it's hard to kick start but it bump starts EZ. Will be looking at that and still have it. So I'd like to know after your Bikes all good what would you do if some ones 4 stroke drowned ?

Sorry but how did it go 100m under water and you recover it?

It hit a rock and some one saw the handle bar if wasn't for that I would of come back later when the water went down (I got lucky) I tided a rope around Me had a friend holed on to it at that point water was only .75 of a meter deep maybe 4 meters from the waters edge at that point water wasn't to bad. Didn't get all the water out of the tank bike would run funny off and on but OK. No problems after all that.

I'm no pro, but I'd drain the water as best you can and change the oil till it's clean. After that, ride it like a dirt bike and keep an eye on things. Like I say, I don't think the water did much damage. The mud that got in might have hurt something but I'm suspecting the previous owner was seeing some metal on the magnet before he sold it (pretty cheaply).

Kentj,

Have you ever tried Mongoose Machine in Poco? You are in Vancouver correct? I have been using them for 30 plus years and always good service. Also thinking that piston?? I never use any piston that has damage or welded debris on it lol, Want another score in the new liner that would be the way unless you machine it to spec

I don't think he's stupid enough to re fit it with the debris still in it?
