1989 Arctic Cat Jag afs 440

Alright my dad bought a twin pair of 89 jags with 440 grenaded one of them, shattered a pistons and it blew 2 rather big holes through the crankcase, so he gave it to me to fix n ride, everything else is prestine minus the motor, found on craigslist here in Michigan locally a guy has a 1987 cougar with a 440 fc, for $200 should I snag it n bolt the motor in the jag? Little to no fabrication for the donor motor?? Question is, will the cougar motor bolt in pretty easy and I should have very little insues getting my JAG back n running? They look almost identical

Hey you guys dropped the motor in, its a dual carbed 500, had to swap throttle cable, choke cable, fuel pump, new fuel lines n clamps, swapped better igniton boxes, new spark plugs, just need to figure out air box, or something custom but she runs n got it running yesterday with a couple pulls

I can't figure out how to do it through my phone, so I'll have to use my parents computer sometime, but I've got several for ya, I also needed to grind out the 2 motor mounting holes in the back to alittle bit of an egg shape, that's about it, took me about an hour to yank the motor and about 2 days to get it in and bolted down, modifications n hooked up, I have pretty good mechanics skills for a 19 year old and it was my first sled I was just a smidge nervous, by love taking stuff apart so just attacked it

Hey I'm sorry, I'll get pics in here soon, I'm still doing some cool mods, but I've still gotta figure out the dual air box set up, or custom build mine, and tune the carbs and adjust the throttle cable, she wants to die when I completely let go, but if I hold it just a smidge n tighten it up alittle she's fine, I love it rode it around the yard twice, not so good in dry grass

Throttle cable is too tight, should have 1/8" of gap at the lever to block. What is happening is the throttle safety switch is not opening and allowing the spark to continue.

It does have a decent gap before she revs up, I thought it was too loose, how to fix it?
