Machines run good for about 10 minutes and then they lose almost all power and slow to an idle even at full throttle. If you let them sit for an hour or two they run great again for about 10 minutes.

Help. I have a 1982 Arctic Cat Pantera with a fan cooled 500 spirit engine.Its is hard to start. Hot or cold. If I pull the left side plug it will start, but run rough. I can put the plug back in and no start, if I leave it running and install the plug and spark plug boot it'll take off like a raped ape. Yes I have good spark on both sides, the carb is cleaned,swapped out the coil, no vacuum leaks that I can tell. It does start easier if I squirt fuel into the air breather tube.It will not start if you pull the right plug only the left, I'm checking compression in the morning.Any body have any ideas.

The body is okay, not mint, theres some dents, scratches. There is also a spare motor (needs work) and extra body parts. I need an opinion on what I should be selling for.

Hello, I just picked up an artic cat puma 440. I have no spark at either new plug. I pulled flywheel cleaned everything up, sanded and reset point gap .014. Points looked ok. I also elimanated kill switch. Put everything back together. Removed coils,on one porcelian had a crack. Tried starting with battery, then removed battery and tried pull start, no spark either way. Should i try new points and condensers and coil packs or am i missin something. Another thing none of the lights worked. This sled sat for about 10-15 yrs, it has about 2000 miles on it. Another thing when i first bought it, it had spark, then i lost spark, then it came back and now i have none it seemed to come and go.

I am trying to figure out the wiring on my 1974 polaris electra 250 it came out of the bush and there was two yellow wirers a red one a orange one.the thing i am strugling with is that when the key ignition is unpluged there is no spark and there should be ( yes or no ). I then hooked the red wire from the magneto strait to the coil . Then there was spark when keyed ignition was unpluged . Now how to get power to keyed ignition to be able to use key to switch off sled . I ran a wire off of the two red wires to the key but no matter where on the key switch there was no way of cutting power from the coil .Just wondering if any one can help . I am thinking that the two yellows are for lights and the red is hot orange ????????

this sled out of the blue started running crappy when it gets warm,no power pretty much just dies, it works not to bad when cold but not as good as it used to. The pto sides plug is always cool like its not firing. Did a compression both sides tested 110. Swapped spark plug wires because it has a common coil still pto side fails to fire properley. replaced the fuel pump vac hose thinking it was leaking creating an issue and still same prob. did an either test around the intake and crank seal and no sighns of leaking. Changed the cdi unit and still the issue was there. Talked to Bombardier and asked if it could possibly be the pickup coils and they said absolutley not. Bought a camera with a cable eye, snaked it up the intake and found there was some scoring on the piston wall. So I completely rebuilt the top end, bored it out and oversized pistons. Still the issue it there. So i ask, could it be the pickup coils on the stator. Does anyone know some ohms test readings for these coils as per skidoo didn't have any tests nor could they say they could get them.Thanks for any insight, my son realy wants his sled running again.

I have a triple in the back shed in parts that only has 36 miles on the clock .Its rusty and dusty ,but would still fetch 5000$as it sits.When I saw the pic of this one ,I was quite surprised .

Date Posted: 18:26:03 01/06/11 Thu

Contact points needed replcing on a 1985 elan with a rotax, single cylinder 247 type engine. OEM points are discontinued so got a KIMPEX replacement set. Set points at .016 then proceeded to timing. Used a dial indicator with rod setup through spark plug hole. Used a "dim" - "bright" bulb setup with battery to indicate points opening and closing. After holding the timing advance lever full open (247 type engine), rotated engine until light went from bright to dim (points opening), and measured distance to TDC on dial indicator. Service manual calls for timing to be .147 to .167 BTDC but after loosening three lock screws that advance/retard timing the most I can get is about .135 BTDC. Rechecked points (still .016), camshaft looks fine (no worn groove from points and no play when slid on crankshaft), even tried good used replacement camshaft from dealer. Crankshaft is not twisted, bent to alter timing. Advance timing lever operates smoothly and is properly aligned in camshaft slot when flywheel is installed. OEM to KIMPEX point sets not exactly the same? Any suggestions to explain this situation are appreciated!!

Hey ,
I have begun to restore a 1969 ski-doo Olympic 320E.

Was wondering what I should do with the gas tank if anything at all?

Thanks

I have a 1984 Yamaha SR540H SRV. It starts right up and idles great. I have replaced the reeds. I have cleaned the carburator. The compression in both cylinders is 125 #'s. When I try to accelerate it smokes alot and only once and a while will accelerate. Almost like it's flooding. The air screw is set at 2 turns open. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Either its a 2 stroke or a 4 stroke.a 4 stroke would have a timing chain in the engine similar to a Honda xl dual sprt bike .intake ,compression,combustion and exhaust are the principle operating characteristics of a 4 stroke or 4 cycle motor.A 2 stroke wouldnt have a timing gear in it.every time the piston moves downward in the cylinder its considered a power stroke.If its oil injected cus some of the yamaha sleds were oil injected then there would be an oil tank for the oil.Hope this helps.

I own a 1971 olympique 399 and it needs a new fuel tank. I was wondering if any one could tell me if the fuel tanks for 1970-1973 olympique and tnt would fit? Specifically I was wondering if a tank with a model # 414 0770 would replace a tank with a model #414 0624? Also where can someone fine information on how to cross ref#? If any one has a tank for sale that will fit my sled I would be intersted. Any info would be helpfull.

I recently received what I believe to be an early 1970's Yamaha 338D snowmobile. I haven't really looked at it yet as it is still sitting in the back of my truck until this coming morning when I have help getting it out. My question is, the sled has sat for over a year and needs a throttle cable, but I didn't even ask the previous owner, or even look for that matter yet, would this be a two cycle engine or a four cycle? Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

I thought I had placed the chaincase bearing of the front axle in the correct position but the track is rubbing hard against the tunnel on the chaincase side. Is there supposed to be a stop on the axle? Are there spacers required to align the drive sprockets?

Date Posted: 06:43:59 03/11/10 Thu

I own a 1995 Artic Cat 340 Puma i lost the coils on the stator and had no spark. I purchased another coil which was after market. The holes that you screw into the stator plate wouldn't line up so i used a file and made the slots a little bigger so as to allow the coils to seat in place. I have lots of blue spark but while pulling the motor over sometime it kicks back hard .It makes an offer to start but won't start. On the stator plate there are 4 marks on the left side of the plate and 10 marks on the right side , in the owners manual it states that the timing is 16 degrees i am wondering how the marks are graduated. I have tried many different settings but still it won't start. any information that would be of use to me in solving this problem would be greatly appreciated.
