I have recently purchased a ski doo citation 4500E but after a few hours of use i have found that it is in need of new gaskets that connect the engine to the muffler. It is hard to get to the bolts, it looks like the engine might be able to rotate if i unscrew some of the engine bolts, any true to this?

Further to my post of 12/18/09 on the 1983 Alpine twin-track: Found the flooding problem (eventually) - the E-clip on the jet needle had come loose, was in the wrong place and the needle would not seat. Fixed the smoking problem, but then I was getting a lot of air in the fuel lines to carb when the machine warmed up. Clamped, and then wired, all lines from tank to in-line filter, to primer lines, to fuel pump, to carb. Same air problem. So, ended up taking the in-line fuel filter off and the machine seems to be running much better (no air problem). Does anyone know if these old Alpines are not designed for an in-line filter?

the sled started right up this year and we put some isopropyl in gas tank to get rid of any moisture then we got a now gas line and we were having problems with it cracking wide open down the trail for a while then it would die so we shortened the gas line and it ran a bit better and now when i drive it and its cold it will run like a bat out of hell but after a while it starts doggin down and it will only go up to 5 thousand rpms across powder and on hard packed it will crack open and jump up to 85 like nothing once it starts doggin down it starts back firing and you have to pump the hell out of the throttle to get it to run again. Can anyone help me plz im wasting time trying to figure this out and i cant even go riding with friends cuz they get tired of the sled acting up and having to wait for me

There are 2 inlets to carb, one on top and on on side. Which lines go where? they were all off and I am replacing them. is one a vacuum line? The carb does have a pump type diagham in the botton. If it is vacuum line, can i split the one going to the external fuel pump? Thank you

I checked the resistance on all coils, all are good, checked timing, changed the carb with one off a working machine, tried the cdi off same machine and still does the same thing. Was wondering if anybody out there has had the same problem or knows what my problem is. Sure could use some good news. Thanking everybody in advance. Bob

We just finished restoring a 1972 elan and seem to be going thru allot of head lights. My 1st thoughts is that we have missed some sort of inline 12 volt surge protection device or some other device? I thought that there may be a bad ground somewhere? Anyhow it appears that when we get going @ night and wind up this little speed machine and the light gets brighter, the bulb burns out. Is this a function of the type of bulb I'm buying? Does anyone out there have any ideas?

Hi, last winter my olympic 399 started flooding and has no power and stalling about every minutes or so when riding.
so I thought it was the coils. so last week I replaced both coils, and dismounted the carburetor and found ice in it. I cleaaned it and installed a new gas filter. ( didn,t put a new carburetor kit) Now it still has no power and I am wondering what it can be.
I also noticed that the spark on the right side isn't as great as the left side. what do you guys think it could be? thanks alot

I installed new coils,condensor and points (.016" gap). rebuilt tilly carb......it starts up, but bogs...adjusted carb, makes a difference, but can't dial it in? I have another twin, tried a known good carb off of it, same characteristics remain. any suggestions? Is there supposed to be a timing advance tab on flywheel? will timing affect this engine this severe?

Newbie (kinda) here - the sled worked last year. It did quit when it was hot but that was after a few hours of running (or so my son told me). Now - ether sprayed into the carb - the engine will start but stop as soon as the ether is gone. Pour a bit of gas into the throat of the carb - same thing. Gas is being sucked from the tank - I left the return line off of the carb and gas squirted out as i pulled the engine over so I am fairly certain that gas is getting from the tank to the carb. So - I thought needle and seat - opened the carb up and inspected the gaskets,and pump section and needle and seat - all looked ok. Any ideas as to why no gas seems to want to get to the venturi's but does go into the return line back to the tank?
Any help you can be is appreciated!

I have a 1977 pantera 5000 that I received as a gift from a friend..the fuel lines were rotted out in the tanks..I figured out the rear tank and how the line should be placed in the tank..what I'm wondering is how does the lines work in the front tank..it does not have a "T" for the both to hook up to..it does how evr have the stone filter/weight for both tanks...how does that work?? does the rear tank gravity feed the front???where can I find info on the lines that run in the tank??any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much;

New fuel pump, re-conditioned Mikuni carb set to specs, no fuel leaks, spark plug is clean, the throttle sleeve in the carb moves freely (checked when I set the idle screw). At my wit's end.

I just got a 1972 Arctic Cat Puma 340. I am trying to get it running again. The engine turns over fine and seems to have good compression but it won't fire. I drained the gas tank and put fresh gas in. I even put a little fuel right in the cylinders but it didn't fire. I checked the plugs and I am getting spark on both of them but not a bright blue spark. Initially I was thinking perhaps the one of the coils, but both of the plugs have about the same spark. Can anyone tell me if this sled has to have a key in it to run? I can just put a screwdriver in the key hole and turn it but if it has to have a key this may be my problem. I'm just trying to figure out how to get a better spark. Any help you could offer me would be greatly appreciated.

I am wondering who might be able to provide me with some information. I do not want to crack the engine open until I know that I can find a complete rebuild kid with schematics and torque specs for it. The snowmobile has sentimentel value and I really want to rebuild this original engine. It has been sitting idle for approx. 25 years. Any info would be greatly appreciated. If I can properly rebuild the motor, I would start working on the rest of the sled. Cosmetically it is in nice shape but needs gas tank work, a new wiring harness, some undercarriage work, etc. Thanks. Scott

I have a friend who just purchased a 1973 bombardier valmont 440. it has a tillotson HD 62a16 carb on it. he had some trouble keeping it idling, but seems to run fine when he drives at cruising speed. he has tried to tune the carb by tuning the screws in and out but says he cant find the sweet spot.I believe he said the low speed he has set at 2and a quarter turns, and the high speed set at one full turn.. now at this setting it seems to start nice, idle fine and cruise nice.. just wondering if anyone can tell me the actual settings suggested for the carb on this ole girl.and which screw is high, and which screw is low speed.. thanks in advance for your help

I want to replace the springs on my rear suspension. There are part numbers for front and rear. I cannot see the difference from front to rear. I understand left and right will be opposite. Can I use front springs on the rear? I can't locate rear springs in new condition. I have been looking on ebay.

My 377 was running great & would start with the first pull. Now it won't even try to start. I have replaced the spark plugs, made sure the carb was ok & even replaced the gas lines. I get lots of spark. Everything moves freely. I put some gas in the cylinders but still no fire? I just don't understand. Does anyone have any idea of what might be causing this sled not to start? Thanks for any assistance

I have a 1974 Ski-Doo TNT 340E. I spent my entire childhood riding this sled and a '74 Elan 250. Currently, the Elan is outside (the engine seized). We plan on bringing that in soon. Both sleds were sitting outside due to lack of snow until last year we brought in the TNT and started it up. It ran fine the entire winter. This year (about two weeks ago) we cleaned it up, charged the battery, and fired it up. It started on the electric start just fine and I spent all day riding it. I was riding along the side of a road when it just died. I tried to start it again, but no use. It started twice with the choke on, but as soon as I'd push the choke back in and press the throttle, it died. We dragged it home and discovered no spark. We changed the plugs, and still, no spark. We changed some wire clamps (not sure the name.. attached near the spark wire). We discussed it with our former skidoo mechanic and he thought that it might be the points in the condenser. Is it possible? And how can we get to that?

I have no headlight or tail light when my sled is running, but I do have a high beam that I can use and my brake light works. Is this a wiring problem or both bulbs? Any suggestions? I am not a mechanic by any means!
