    • I’ll be towing it minimum 200km one way to go ice fishing and it I can only imagine how messed up it would be from all the salt that they’re using in the roads here.  Those covers look good, how long have you been using the quadboss cover ? 
    • The screw under that black hose is the air/fuel screw.  Idle screw is on the side of the carburetor, either on the side or right where the throttle cable enters the carburetor  That's your air fuel mixture screw. Picture attached.   That screw should be 2-5/8 if thats what the manual calls for.    idle should be on the side.      
    • I'm guessing the screw under the black hose in the pic is the idle screw - it's the only functional screw on the carb other pic was the junk in the bowl ** was I right on turning the screew 2 5/8" back?  should I have screwed it down until I saw the needle, then backed it out 2 5/8"?  
    • Thats a good deal, hopefully no engine damage. Depends how it went in the water and for how long.  You'll know once you drain the oil and pull that plug. Take the belt cover off, there also should be a drain plug somewhere. Inspect everything. Hopefully the engine is good, the rest is probably ok.  Worse case scenario I think is an engine rebuild. You can then look used, look for a rebuilder like https://www.rev6sports.com/sportsman-500-engine-rebuild/ or even buy one on amazon - Polaris Ranger 500 99-13 Sportsman 500 96-13 Engine Motor Rebuilt :
    • Bid was $3750.  $4548 with all the fees.  Hoping to see low mileage when I get the power going.  According to the title, it was originally titled 8/2018.  There is about $800 worth of accessories on it too.  Came with no key so I got a $10 chinese replacement just to get working on it. Auction link: www.copart.com/lot/49761799 I wanna pull the clutch cover off too and see how bad it is in there.  I'm assuming its a belt drive.  I charged the battery and its been holding at 12.2v for 2 days(not connected) so Ill see how that goes later.  Would like to get a sealed AGM battery if they're available.  A buddy of mine said to drain everything from the engine, pour a little oil in the spark plug hole and manually turn the crank to lube the cylinder or the walls may get scratched up and lead to major blow-by.  I heard it is ok to use 5W-40 oil in it so I will run a few oil changes through it with that before switching to the pricy polaris PS-4 oil.  My buddy recommended like a half dozen oil changes to get everything out. Unfortunately its at my brother's house about an hour away cause I don't have room for it here.  But it is in a heated garage which helps alot being in the Poconos in December.
