Hey guys, Im new around here. Ive had my rhino for about 3 months and blew up the engine. I bought it used, and it was my fault, so now Im looking to buy a replacement 660 engine to put in it. The problem is I really cant find anywhere that will give me a ball park figure on what its going to cost. I have a buddy who will be doing the swap, I just need to know the ballpark cost to buy a new engine so I can start working a bunch of overtime to get my rhino back on the trail! Thanks in advance for your time guys....

Also are there any places that might specialize in selling used rhino engines? Ive found a few on the classifieds here but Im guessing theyll be sold when I have the money in a few weeks.

Define "blew up"? Piston seized, or busted rod and broken case? if you have any kind of mechanical skills, redoing a top end is easy. Bottom end... Meh... Not so much!

Depending on the damage, it may be waaay cheaper to fix the issue in the current motor.

Well...I ran it out of oil and both ends of the rod were gone...The guy thats helping me out is pretty handy doing swaps, but cant rebuild the engine. Im not handy at all, so theres no way I can do it.

$1500 to 2000 depending on the milage/condition and what aftermarket parts are on it. (some parts will reduce the value, others may add a little).

I didnt know aftermarket parts could REDUCE the value...What types of parts would do that? Only thing I could think of is performance type that would reduce overall engine life?

Just like you said, performance parts that would reduce the engine life, or unknown parts or assembly that could result in a early failure.

A pure stock motor thats never had any aftermarket parts on/in it, IMO, is your best bet.

Do you know of any dealers that might specialize in rhino engines? Or should I just keep surfing classifieds until I find the right one?

Best place to find one is right here on this board! Local craigslists will be useful as well. Most dealers aren't going to stock used Rhino engines.

I have a 2006 Rhino 660 motor for sale.

My Rhino was only used for two seasons before it got rolled. Rhino was damaged bad but motors fine. I think the odo showed less then 1500 miles on it. It's been sitting in my garage for 2 years so I decided to sell it. I can ship it for $2,200 obo. Need to get what I can out of it. [email protected] Email me if you want to see pictures.

I bought a motor off here for 1600. It was said to be perfect and runnin with only 300 miles. He was pulling it to do a rotax swap. Anyway since my other motor just cracked cases I sent it to my motor builder to do a billet mid gear cover and check it out. He found the mid grear cover loose with two of the bolts almost all the way out. Had a clean head gasket and the water pump was broke. . My point is unless the motor is new and you know what the parts are you should have the known problems addressed before you end up having to do it again.
