Recently picked up a ski that I plan to part out. I noticed it has an rc520 westcoast cylinder on it. Anyone know what its worth? No scaring in the bores, looks really good. Thanks!

Someone on eBay was trying to get 600 or 700$ for just the cylinder. I have no clue what they are worth but I know there are at least 3 guys on pwctoday looking for one. I have one too that I am looking foreward to trying out this summer if nobody steps up and buys it. They are supposed to run pretty good and are pretty rare. I read somewhere that back in the day they were 2500$ new

Hard to value a part like this, since it can be very hard to find the other parts needed to run this cylinder such as the correct head, correct pistons, gaskets, etc.

There was a guy on PWCtoday that was looking pretty hard for one of these cylinders. I think his name was cue.maker or something like that.
 
I have the same set with race porting I bought new. Uses stock gaskets you could run a reusable base gasket. Also have the removable dome head. Total animal

I had that same motor back in the early 2000’s with dual blue sudco 38’s and a ocean pro head. I dont remember if the head was pp spacing or SX spacing but you need to ditch that stock head for a aftermarket one. Westcoast used to make on with removable domes so you could change the compression. I was running 195 compression with AV gas.
All i can say is that setup was one of the hardest pulling/fastest setups i ever built! Running a straight 15 skat in a 550 pump it was like a light switch.....on or off! Gave me tunnel vision! I think i was running a PJS full pipe, manifold and head pipe.

If i was you I’d hold on to that! Get the parts you need over time and build it! You wont regret it!
