    • I can make part of it out after several cleanings but not all … I'm starting to think the year doesn't matter much in this particular series    Thanks for both … the welcome and the proper placement of my post . I got some pics up now … should have thought of before I got it the workshop and started tearing it apart  lol
    • thanks … great advice …. that's pretty much what I'm in the middle of now ……  this poor carb has sooo much build up - it looks like it's been on the ethanol a long time .  I also checked on the gas valve earlier and yea .. they are so cheap I'm not even going to mess with it . I'll likely just buy the cable if this gives any resistance at all , they are cheaper than I thought they would be also . I will keep the factory one in case … sometimes when I receive those cheap aftermarket Chinese parts I see why they where so cheap , sometimes they seem alright - It's kinda like internet dating - they always look good in the pics . I have already pulled the tank and it looked surprisingly clean inside … gonna give it a good clean out anyway just because I pulled it .           I'm getting some before pics up here in a few minutes …. didn't think about it earlier so plastics are just sorta propped in place                                                 Thanks again for the good advice : )   crud … I forgot to mention I did find the vin where you said , but I'm not sure I can recover it , I took some close ups at dif. angles and may be able to pull it from one . I may try taking a rubbing like people do to grave stones .. who knows   lol
    • @JacobSlabach @Kent Mettler  Yeah i figured lol had me a little confused for a second
    • Welcome to Quadcrazy. The vin is stamped on the frame in the front cross bar right behind the main front bumper/steel bar. You will find it there.   As for the carburetor and choke cable you should be able to take the carb off and clean it good with carb cleaner and some small wires to clean out the jets.  Also a small can of compressed air will help.  The choke cable can be freed up taking the end off the control and holding it up high and spraying wd-40 into it and letting it sit. Or remove it completely and roll it up and soak the entire cable in oil.  The gas fill valve (petcock) I would replace it entirely as its cheap enough. Replacing the seals may not work or only for so long.  Fresh spark plug as well  and clean the gas tank out when the petcock is off  the tank. I like to use a dishwashing soap like dawn and warm water. With the tank off I put soap and water put the cap on and shake it up good and rinse it out. And put the new petcock in.
