Princess Auto just put three copies of the EFI version of the engine for a Polaris Ranger TM on sale for $1500. CDN.

I mentioned this source for Robin engines in Owning an Orphan.

He finally got back to me with a sort-of denial, but this still looks like the strongest lead available to me.

Dear wiproducts,

This looks like the engine for a Polaris Ranger TM, and these things by all reports are scarce. My TM has less than 400 hours on it and seems to run well, but I’d appreciate information about possible replacements for my Polaris blog. Will another Robin engine fit the same space/coupler?

Thanks,
Rod

Dear sawdust-ink,

Polaris and Fuji have an exclusive agreement, and the Polaris engines are not sold through the Industrial Engine distribution channel. We don’t offer the Polaris specs. Some of our engines are similar, but we do not sell them as replacements for Polaris specs.
