Idk man. I'd be afraid the cylinder sleeve would be thin and that causing the engine to have more heat and maybe crack the sleeve when hitting some cold water.

Re: Rancher 350 project 2017/04/13 18:25:10 (permalink)
Guys here's my options I can redo a complete stock to pend rebuild kit for $125 and install it myself since there will be no boring or honing or my other option is I could buy the highlifter 375 bbk for $185 and have it installed by my local mechanic for $150. What y'all think I should do?

Ok well I need some help. The highlifter bbk comes with a new sleeve so what I'm asking is do I still have to bore my cylinder for the new sleeve or does it slide into the stock cylinder to replace the stock sleeve. If it does not have to be bored over I will go ahead and get the bbk and install it myself

That's just a general picture, does not come with sleeve has to be bored. I would not go 375 bbk, you will be asking for trouble.

You can get everything from Namura for less than $100 to do .20 over

I with Doveman!!! I run namura pistons and have never had a problem. LA Sleeve has some good stuff too but is a little more expensive but if you look you can find the deals.

Also look at a wiseco kit. That's what highlifter is selling anyway.

This is off wiseco website so you can basically see where you end up. I still say for what you are fixing to spend to just get the GR and be done. I don't see huge gains in boring your bike. Keep it stock with a GR will make a very reliable motor.

I hear you but you need to pull the jug and look at the cylinder. If it's not bad just run a crazy 8 or hone through it and some new valve seals and be done.

No, don't feel stupid.  350 motors are easy to pull, and you can do some other work while you have it out.
 
I would tear the whole motor down and clean the cases out.
 
New timing chain
New shifters seal, reverse seal, crank seal (under the pullstart) and front and rear output seals. 
 
All that stuff is CHEAP, and if you put a new top end on a motor that has grit in the bottom it will go right back to smoking.
 
Tear it down, clean it out, and put new timing chain and seals in it.  Then do your top end and you KNOW what you have.
 
Anyone used those aftermarket 350 top ends?  I've got an extra 350 motor in the shop and I can buy a new Chinese top end cheaper than I can have my old cylinder bored.

Just reread the whole thread.

Yeah, if you got water in your motor, I'd split cases, clean it all out.  You can take that clutch kit back off on the bench (much easier).
 
Of course, that would be the time to do the gear reduction as well....
 
New seals, new timing chain, new top end, or at least hone yours with new rings.
 
That won't cost you much if you're doing the work, and then you know your motor is good and you won't have to worry about water seeping in through a seal, or grit from your bottom end ruining a new top end.
 
These 350's actually seem to be kind of a bargain these days.  Better rear end design than the 420's, and the 350 motors seem to last forever.  They do seem to have a lot of carb issues, but other than that I like them.
 
420 brakes will bolt right on at the ball joints if you want to covert to disc brakes.

I want to try a 400AT front end in one to make it selectable 4wd. 
 
I just rebuilt one for my neighbor.  Did the engine work I suggested, put 420 brakes on the front.  He didn't want to spend money on the 400AT front end experiment I wanted to try, but I bet it would be easy to swap in.
 
I converted his to footshift too.  Just replaced that hex "emergency shifter" spindle with a splined spindle from a footshift 350, bolted a shifter on, and pulled the gears out from under the shift motor on the front cover.  Works fine, and no more electrical crap to mess up.  He wanted his left hand free to hold his beer.

Honestly I believe you are wasting time boring that big. If the cylinder walls and piston look good I'd clean the engine real good and slap a set of rings on it for $30. Take the jug to a shop and get it honed for a few dollars. If you do .60 start looking for a new jug. There isn't enough gains in these little motors. If you are going all the way down find you a cam to slap in it and a GR and be done.
