My friend just bought a Artic Cat ZR 1996 and it died on the lake. The guy we bought it from said the "top end" was just rebuilt. We do not know much about snowmobiles, but a decent amount about cars. This it what we did...

It has spark
Would not run on ether or fresh gas
Compression was above 100 in one cyl, but 25 in the other.
We took the head off both cyl and they looked the same.
We put gas on both cyl and the one with 25 compression drained real fast


Rings?

Very possible........If the rings had GONE in a big way you'd see it in the cylinder walls. Best to take the top end apart and inspect everything

Sounds like maybe the guy that rebuilt it may have not bled the oil line. NOT good.
