I've got a repair manual that has some info. It looks like Polaris made the galaxy in 1980 and 1981. Looks like the 2 years produced a very similar sled.

1980 440 Galaxy: Polaris engine made by Fugi, 432cc's, model #EC44PM-01.(In 81 engine model #EC44PM-02). Both model years should have came with a Mikuni VM34SS. Mix fuel 40:1 if not oil injection.
E.T. ignition with a point gap of 0.14in. Timing on that engine looks to be 3 degrees measured at retard(starting) position. Spark plug NGK-BR8ES with a 0.020in gap.

Chaincase Ratio 17:33 both years.

Clutch shaft center should measure 12.0 inches.

Origional belt #3211042

Mikuni Origional settings at 1000ft and -17celcius: Main jet-200. Pilot jet-35. Clip position-3. Throttle cutaway-2.5 . Increase main jet size 10 for -37 celcius. The float arms must be parallel with gasket surface of carburetor when invertedand equal in height.

Hope this info helps, even though it's not the hp and max rpms like you were asking for, Pete.

Thanks. All kind of information is welcome as i don't have any information on this sled.

The guy I purchased the sled from told me that the engine was replaced.
So it could have been an Galaxy 340 at first.

The engine is produced in japan by Fuji Heavy Ind. It has twin carburettors. Just wondering if this is an original Galaxy engine or is this an TX engine?(If not the same)

scuba what do you're plugs look like when they quit, might be running rich, or mixing to much oil in the gas. Pete.
