Smile 84 ski doo safari 377 engine seized.

Hey guys, this is my first post on the forum. I am not a fellow snowmobiler, at least not yet anyway. I have a friend who has his 1984 ski doo 377 in the dumpster in his backyard. Looked to me like it was in overall pretty good shape, however the engine is hydro locked. So my question to everyone, how expensive will it be for me to fix this machine up? Because I can take it for free from my friend, and I like free things. Thanks in advance for any input

Grab it. Tear into it and see how much damage there is. It could just be a stuck piston or it could be the crank. In any case you will have some fun working on it and if it is too expensive to repair then you can scrap it. If nothing else you may be able to sell some parts off it.

The older I get the better I was; In fact now that I think about it I am a legend.
