• I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"

    http://www.snowestonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=269222

    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.

Have a 98’ 700 rmk with a good motor but the chassis been abused and is about done. My friend is willing to sell me a 03’ 700 rmk with a decent chassis but a engine that is completely done. Cracked webbing and head! So my question is how much work would it be to transplant the motor out of the 98’ and into the 03’?? Hard, not hard?

I see EDGE sleds with earlier Liberty motors for sale all the time, so it can't be that hard of a swap. You'll need to use the EDGE mounts and straps, and most likely, you'll just be dropping the long block in using all the EDGE parts. '98 would be Wedge chassis FWIW, so even less likely any other pieces will fit. Hopefully someone who's done the swap can chime in, but I'd just drop the long block in and keep going until you hit a snag or you're finished.

Could be an issue with electrical wiring, timing and other miscellaneous stuff. The 98 700 engine was a gas hog at 6 to 7 miles per gallon on the trail, as was told to me by an owner. Fixing the 03 engine will be easier and a better investment than going backward with a 98. Buy used parts on ebay.

The 98 motor will drop in. You will need to use the 98 wire harnes and cdi/coil. Use the motor straps and mounts from the edge. Use the edge y pipe and pipe. You can also use the rack carbs and boots from the edge. Just start out a little fat with the jetting. Check the cylinder# on the 98 see if it has 220 cylinders or 824s.

I would go to an 800 VES liberty engine, 03, 04 or 05. People are giving them away as well.
