There is a one man shop in Fairlee VT.right on main street (just across the bridge from Orford NH), he did my SDI motor for me about 9000 miles ago, still running great. He is no stranger to snow cross either. I would trust him with anything. He used to be an AC dealer and has spent a few years recently in a Skidoo shop.

No help with a mechanic but I have to ask.........are you sure you are not "cold seizing" your motors?

I'm sure you know you have to pre-mix your gas and oil. You probably want to strangle me right now. Just trying to help.
If it's happening that quick, i'd think it was an air leak?
