If you are looking to switch the engine, i would see if the engine mounts are the same or if the 440 will mount onto the 340 mount, if the bodies are the same you shouldn't have a problem using all of the 440 exhaust. you probably need to use all of the 440 wiring and carbs and put air filters on in place of the air box. what did you do blow up the 340 or just looking 4 more power?

The 340 and 440 fan engines are not compatable. The cranks are different. The stud centers, bore and stroke and engine mount holes are different.

Non of the parts will interchange. The 488 and 440 are based on the same parts, not the 340, that came from the old freeair block.

Hey nab..I was offering help. At the risk of sounding like a bigger jerk than you. I've forgotten more about Polaris fan engines than you will ever know. And I don't hide behind a screen name.
