welcome to the forums..look on ebay first..then craigslist..if that doesn't pan out..try doing a google search for a salvage yard for atv's around your area. just did the same thing with my 2000 trx350tm rancher..bent connecting rod..this must be a weak link in these bikes..been seeing alot of this around here. before you go tearing it apart..make sure you purchase a service manaul for this bike.Hey guys....just wondering can someone help me find a engine or some good used parts. 2006 Rancher trx350fm. connecting rod is bent.
i take it..it's got a fan for the oil cooler ?..if this is the case..helmut from here has stated..these atv's melt the pistons and such..because the fans block the engine from being cooled right..and the oil temp sensors go out..or don't work very good..sooo..now you know why your connecting rod and piston is gone...the 4x4 models only seem to have this problem..the 2wd ranchers dont have the fan..sooooo..the engine isn't being blocked from air with the fan in the way...and for 200 bucks..you got a damn good deal..now if you can either find another crank..( this is what i just did on my 2wd )..or another engine..you can rebuild it...do a google search for atv salvage yards..loads of them all around !yeah I have the service manual.. i got it for $200 they said it didnt run.. so i thoght it was a good deal... it was ran with no oil and melted the piston.. and the top part of the connecting rod is bent...i looked on ebay and craigslist with little luck.thanks it also has lift kit and 28" itps with 12" wheels, snorkels and winch
thats a decent price..if you do the work yourself..you can save a boat load of cash in repairs.ok thanks.i'll let u know what i find....mr.crankshafts got a rebuilt one for $229
