    Default interchangeable parts?

    I have a '87 polaris 350 sportsman. I was wondering what year parts are interchangeable with this machine. ie; 1988 transmission will fit 1986-1990 models. This is just an example not sure if it is true but that is the type of info I'm in search of. Thank you in advance.

    Gonna be difficult when Polaris didn't make a 350 'til 90 nor a Sportsman 'til 93. Is it possibly a 250 or is the year wrong?

    Sorry about the poor info. It is a '87 250 (trailblazer I think) got it from a buddy who put a '90 350 motor in it. My biggest problem finding a tranny was it is chain drive borh rear AND front. I did find one though, for an '87 250 plus the guy had 3 more just in case.

    Good deal on finding a tranny. I imagine all the 250 trannies for the old chain drives would work for you. That would give you quite a wide range of years that will fit. Hard to imagine someone went thru the trouble of sticking a liquid cooled motor in there

    Default He did it

    before I ever saw the machine. When I saw it for the first time he had just got a new machine and asked me if I wanted to buy the old one. I did just that, figured I couldn't go wrong for $200, even if it wound up just a machine for the kids to play around on. I do like the fact that it has a ground clearence of about 10" (at the rear axle, due to tires I'm sure) and the "belly" has a clearance of about 16" all due to combining parts from bothe wheelers on the 250 frame. I'm a big guy and with all my gear strapped on it's nice to be able to clear alot of obsticles. He did include the other machine(the 350 or at least what's left of it) in the sale. I think this winter I'm gonna work on changing the front drive system to the shaft drive.

    That sounds like a good project.
    I am working on putting an '85 back together. We got it new when I was a kid.
    I like the simple motors and mine was always 100% reliable.
