I am new to the forum and like what I see. Question: I have an 04 Rancher for about 18 months and started plowing snow with it. The machine smokes pretty bad and it needs new rings. Is this something the average Joe can do or should I pay the $300.00 and have it done. I bought a boat last year and replaced the gimble bearing in the stern drive so I am not totally inept. My main question is do I have to pull the motor or can I remove the jug with the engine installed.
