I have a 1989 Arctic cat Jag 340. It has electric start, but the starter does not work. It has a back up pull starter that we use.

It started and ran for quite a while. It was shut off and re started and ran for a while. It was shut off again. It sat for a couple of minutes and we tried to start it again. It would not start. No Spark. Took the plug ends (caps) off and ran the wire directly to the plug and had spark. Ran and when shut off again, would not start. No Spark. We're thinking when the coil heats up, something inside seperates. Not sure if it is the external coil or the internal coil(stator)? Could also be something grounding out. Anyone know how to test the coil? The Stator? I don't think the electric starter not working should effct it. Help!!!

Hi, Ive been working on this problem for a couple of weeks now without any success.I have a 78 ski doo 340 tnt f/a.I have good compression in both cylinders,about 125lbs.The fuel pump is working properly.The carb has been re done and set to spec.I have 4 lines coming out of the carb.1 line goes to the fuel pump,the other line to the primer,and the other 2 lines are just vents that have 2 small pieces of fuel line connected to them.When primed the engine starts up very easy,and warmed up i can set the idle around 1800 rpm.When I give it a bit of throttle it revs up Ok but when I let off it either stalls or revs higher.Also idle mixture screw does nothing when turned.

I just bought a Rupp Snosport from a guy at work who said it ran, but needed new diaphrams in the carb. We re-kitted the carb and no start. Will fire with gas in the spark plug, but we can't get it to stay running. Thinking it's not getting the impulse to draw the fuel up. 1 snowmobile guy said it didn't have enough compression. I'm not sure but almost rips your arm up trying to start it. Anyone have any ideas or know what compression I should have for this sled?

Hi there, i am having a problem starting my sled. I was recently having some gasket isues and had to feather the gas so i changed the gaskets that were leaking, (manifold and head gaskets). IT has always started first pull with a few primes first and all of a sudden it will not start. It was minus thirty the other day and after driving around bow hunting i shut it down two hours later nothing. I beleive there may be water in the gas and lines but not sure. there is lots of spark and combustion but no go. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thank you

I have a 1972 skidoo olympique . iT`s in good shape and starts easy 1st time. however after you run it a while you have to feather the gas to keep it runing. if you let it cool a while it runs ok until it heats up again.
I believe it`s a fuel problem just not sure what type.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1980 John Deere Sportfire #120021M Reg#542260 was stolen and reported to Durham Regional Police rep#08-150504. This sled has sentimental value to our family. I am hoping someone might find it intact. This sled is unique because ut has the 340 Kawi motor instead of the 440. It belongs to my children and they are quite upset over it being taken. There was no insurance policy in effect at that time. I was hoping it might turn up. If you guys with a keen eye could find it I would really appreciate it... Jim

Hello everyone!
I have a 1991 Skidoo Safari L with the 377 twin carb, the sled is great in the daylight, but at night it sucks!!! the headlight is on and working (well sort of...) but it's very dim... seems like it's not getting the current flow or voltage it needs to be bright enough to be effective, and the really strange part is when I hit the gas to get going the RPM's come-up like they should but the headlight gets even dimmer untill it seems to go right out, then when the engine comes back to idle speed the headlight comes back on but is still very dim.
Any help or advice with this would be very helpful.

Here is some more info about the sled incase you need it, it's got a battery that works great, elec start works, tail light works also, even the brake light portion of the tail light works as advertized. The hot grips work great too! The only thing that is different is I don't use the oil pump I premix with the gass, so naturally the tank is dry, there are 2 wires going to a oil tank sensor, but i don't know why that would be the cause of the headlight being dim... thanks in advance for any info, or where I could find a schamatic (wire diagram) for this sled.

feel free to e-mail me if you'd like

Not wanting to destroy the studs on the flywheel, I used 3 long nuts, tapped them out to 8 X 1.25MM, screwed them on the studs, attached my balance wheel puller and popped off the flywheel. It was too easy. You Canadian guys have a better metric selection than we do in the states, so that part would be easier.
I didn't want to spend money on a puller that I wouldn't use 5 times. Just cheap, I guess.
Hope this helps someone else.

I am trying to figure out what a 1971 Ski-Doo 440 Nordic with 6 hours (on meter) and 438 miles on odometer would be worth? The snowmobile has been sitting (lifted on blocks)since 1972 in a garage. There seems to be a little bit of surface rust around the foot anchors but other than that pretty nice shape. Seat is like new condition. It has been the original owner and all original papers still intact. I'm thinking about buying. Below are some pictures.

I recently aquired a 1967 Ski-Doo Olympique and Ski-Boose, and I was wondering how the hood is supposed to be attached to the body... The reason I ask this, is because mine is riveted to the bottom of the body, all the way around. I have other Ski-Doos, and this one is the only one, that has the hood riveted to the body. Is this factory? And, if not, how is the hood supposed to be attached? Everybody I have talked to, seems to think it is factory to have the hood riveted down, in this way. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, If any of you out there, would have a picture of a hood for a 1967 Ski-Doo, that would help, as well. One more thing... I don't have the windshield for it, either. I was wondering, if anybody out there has the measurements for the windshield (witdh and height) Thanks much. Dan.

Hi
Hope someone can help.........my 74 elan starts right away after I prime it, then it runs for about 30 seconds then dies eventhough I'm giving it throttle. If I keep pushing the primer it will keep running. I changed the carb diaphrams only. Also ensured that the suction hose from motor to pump is in place and working.
Any suggestions on what I should check next???

I recently purchased and 1987 Ski Doo Tundra to break trail on my property. It has been setting for a number of years so I want to remove the gas tank, clean it and put fresh gas in. Does anyone know how to remove the tank, without lowering the track, removing the seat etc?

Thanks in advance.

I just bought a 72 tnt 340 twin and the guy said it ran 2 weeks ago and should start up but when he got here it had no spark ( i only slightly believe him because of the brand new plugs which are lightly browned .....its been going recently) ive checked everything disconnected from the harness to eliminate it so it must be a coil or something, from what ive seen if its external coils one goes at a time, correct?? so for both sides to go am i right to assume an internal coil? also do you know where to order these parts? any information would be a big help and greatly appreciated. let me know what you think! thanks

I'm looking at a 1990 safari lx 440. Does anyone no if this is a good sled or not? Also, I cant find anything about how much it weighs. It's only got 1000 miles and looks like its in good shape by the pics. Will it work for pulling a sled with a couple dogs in it?

The skidoo won't idle. Cleaned carb and fuel pump, replaced all fuel filters and lines. New plugs gapped to 20. The machine is hard to start, it's getting fuel when primed. When I get it going, it runs nice and smooth as long as the throttle is open. Let off the throttle, she quits. Please help, thanks Jacquie.

Howdy, And thanks for letting me adress you all. One of the sled I picked up last year to refit and ride is a 77 polaris tx 340 , with a 1980 ec 44 t ie an air cooled 440 fugi star engine. I put new rings and a piston in it fired it up the first pull and let it idle for 5 minutes..... Beutiful. Changed the angle of the throttle and kill switch. Cleaned and the positive coil terminal and replaced the negative. put liquid tape on the connections. And no no fire. Long story , short. will someone send me a wiring schematic.. Also, Will an ignition and lighting system from an 85 indy trail 488 fit and work.. Thanks again.Keep the rubber side down.

I have a friend who just bought a 1979 Moto Ski sled. He is trying to get it to run and I want to help, but I don't know anything about this brand(who made them, where were they made, where to get parts, manuals, etc...) I have a 79 John Deere and that is the limit of my experience with antiques. Any help would be appreciated.

My grandfather left me a vintage skidoo. From my research(pictures of hood) it appears to be a 1963 or maybe a 1964. On the dash is a glove compartment lid with the serial # 37901. I don't know but believe the sled to be a 9hp. It is a rotax engine. It is made in Canada by bombardier. Can anyone tell me the year and engine size. The hood doesn't have the raised V shaped Skidoo lettering just the v shaped skidoo lettering.

Thanks,
