Has anyone ever built a triple based on old Wildcat's 700cc motor? If so, I would like to know more about it

I know where there is a triple and a quad lower end for sale. These were made from 650 and 700 cases and do not use the waterpump drive gear. The ignition from a Wildcat will not work on this engine, some guys used a 650 Indy ignition system. A custom stator plate and flywheel needs to be made to mount to the case/ crank. Custom pipes will need to be made, the Decker or PSI bodies worked well. Today, maybe the Jaws folks make something close.

d&d is making a triple case that accepts 800 or 900 twin jugs that would be awsome to play with

I wouldnt mind having one of them cases and a third 1080 psi genesis jug to slap on the top of one of them lol
that would be sick

that would be close to 300 hp with a combo like that

now Im going to be daydreaming all day lol

Ehh ... Well I'm not planning to build anything - I'm just curious and wanted to know what kind of motor it was at old days. Was that engine good in HP etc?

Oh, does anybody have a pic of that engine anymore?

Here is one.. The HP depended on who was running the dyno that day. The engine pictured produced somewhere around 200 hp back in 1993. The sled won NSSR "King of the Lake" title in 1994. ARSC 1050 EXT had somewhere around 220 HP and was "runner up" for the title. Today, with some changes, my engine is around the 220 mark and the sled runs 127 - 130 mph in 1000' most weekends.

We raced a few of those custom built triples back in the day. The sled in the pic (1990) on the far left was a 975 CAT (650 wildcat base) which was re worked in 1992 to a 1050 (700 wildcat base) the next sled (green momba) was an open mod 540 (529 CAT MOTOR) The next sled was an Anderson chassis with a ROTAX 340 SNO PRO MOTOR. And the one on the far right was a custom built 660 triple (440 CAT BASE). Missing from the picture was a sister sled to the one on the left which had a custom built CAT TRIPLE 794 (529 base motor). All total there is around $60,000.00 worth of race sleds in the pic including the 800 in 1990"s money. I still to this day have SCARS on my KNUCKLES from WRENCHING on those sleds.

Wow, you must have been on the multi-sled discount plan, I had about 18k in just my Wildcat, with all of the different sets of pipes, carbs, stuff.

The original 975 was right at $18k turn key from Noard/Reynolds. Then the next year we re did the upper end with the 700 jugs and had the 794/DART done and that was right around $16k. The problem back then was ALL the clutch components for the NOS sled had to be custom made. You could'nt buy 80g primary weights off the shelf, or the differant helix combinations that had starting angles in the lower 70* range. These TUNERS got it EASY today with adjustable primary weights and such. Ramp grinding has FAST become a LOST ART.
