These cat motors any good??

both complete sleds,but rough. motors are good and stout compression.
1 is a 75? el tigre 340 f/a
1 is a 79 el tigre 440 l/c
the f/a is not a dual plug. both sleds $100 [for the pair] pretty much a no brainer,but wondered if these motors in particular were desireable?

You will sell me that 79... You have no choice in the matter... My 79 needs to meet your 79...

More specifically I need your engine :D Well more correctly the bottom end so I can mount my 77Z top end and have a sled that can hang with the SRX's around here.

Idiot that owned it before me didn't know what he had under the hood so he pinned it while it was cold and it chewed an entire piston skirt and ran on one jug for what he told me was a 15 mile trip while he limped it home... Crank on mine is just f*cked... I pulled aluminum chunks out of the reeds... its sad to be able to slide on the crank bearings on the pto side by hand... it locked the bearings and spun away... sad sight indeed.

Shouldn't put out a 120hp engine in a trail sled anyways.

sorry to say your Z top end will NOT make 110-120 hp at all even with proper pipes and carbs. the suzuki motor gets no respect in mod or snopro racing it simply cant hang with the polaris rxl and skidoo motors. you would be lucky to see 100 hp from that motor and since you dont have mod Z or snorpro pipes even less than that would be expected.
