Gary I did mean an 6 point! LOL Old Age? Great that you got everything, get us some pictures of the damage! Good Luck on the build! The only concerns I ever had was the cam timing! Once done I usually hit it on the first try!

I'm an ex-Snap On Dealer [ late 70's thru early 80's] so those things stick out like a sore thumb .. and yes I do have a nice set of tools :)

Hard to beat snap on tools! My dad was a Pontiac dealership mechanic in the 50's and early 60's, all of his tools are snap on, and I received them when he passed on! Great memories with the tools, and learned a lot about auto's at a very early age! What a great time we had!

Case does not look all that bad, looks like you are getting off fairly cheap! Just think what the tab would be if you had to pay someone to do it! YIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!LOL

That was my thought also! Maybe you get lucky, and it is still on the shaft.

Didn't get the chance to look today. There's a guy I found on facebook parting out a thundercat 1000 said the top end was trashed. He said he used to work for a arctic cat dealer an the prowler an thundercat 1000 engines are exactly the same. Would any of you happen to know.? I found a gasket kit for a thundercat 1000 an was told it wouldn't work on the xtz 1000. But if it's the same I could prolly just put my heads an Pistons in it maybe a long shot?

I always thought that the AC engines were pretty much the same for the ATV's/UTV's. Exhaust and add on components are different, but the case, internals, and heads should inter change. Checked the parts lists for the ATV 1000, and the UTV 1000, cylinder heads are the same part number, crankcase is the same, and secondary transmission also carry the same parts numbers. This was checked in the AC parts manuals.

Glad to help! I have been collecting 700 parts for about two years! I have a case, cylinder, piston, head, cam& rockers, and secondary transmission gears! I want to build another 700/750 engine complete and ready to drop in. T want to keep it under 1,800.00 dollars complete, so far so good! Next up is to find a complete trashed engine for other bolt on parts. I plan on buying a new crank and rod.
