Assault project
 
well, picked up a 14' assault rmk with a blown bottom end for what I felt was a pretty good deal at 2200, could have gotten it cheaper but he threw in some extras as well as a cover.
needed something to work on anyways. :superb

Its a little rough around the edges, but was surprisingly clean and fairly good shape considering what the sleds been put threw and has a cool history behind the sled.

previous owner told me its been geared down, and the shocks have been valved stiffer.

anyways, here she is.

I picked up a bottom end for $300, then another $300 on everything to rebuild the top end. Unfortunatly one of the rings that came with the pistons was bent, so tomorrow I'll be heading back to the Polaris dealership to see if they will exchange it for a new one.

I was a bit skeptical about the cylinder I had, but after hitting it with the hone it cleaned right up.
And I'm all about making youtube vids, so heres one as well.

Things I want/need to do to it-
replace lower A arm
swap out stock rear shocks for a better set I have
straighten the tunnel, add more braces
rear bumper needs replaced, planning on building my own.
finish removing paint from hood and repaint it.
swap the seat for an all black one
find a can for it, I cant do stock lol
I could use a slp pipe I have laying around if I can get away with stock mapping, I do have a PC5 laying around but not sure if I really want to mess with it or not.
rebuild front shocks
add gas rack
I do want to have the rails, a arms and spindles PC'd blue.
remove stock running boards and put my skinz air frames on it

I'm sure theres more, but that's all I can think of at the moment.

give the cylinder skirts a good hard look for cracks at the connecting edges.
why did the last motor go down?

Nice!
The Assaults are a lot of fun. :)

Crank broke, near the edge of the case on the clutch side.
Other engine stuck a ring on the intake side I guess.

Went and talked to the polaris dealership, they didn't have any rings or other spi piston kits so I have to wait another week to put the engine together.


So I guess for now I'm going to address the other thing with the sled, currently trying to come up with a design to use when I build a rear bumper.

So I did a quick drawing and some rough measurements, this is what I have in mind for my rear bumper.

My thoughts on it were I planned on using my braces from my pro on the assault, but if it's intergrated into the bumper it will have a cleaner look and still provide additional strength to the tunnel.

I don't have a tube bender unfortunately, so the grab handle will be a straight peace of tube.

Well, got one side almost done. Few little tweaks and tomorrow I'll use it as a template for the other side. Might make an extra as a template so I can make more in the future.
