I've got a 2005 Brute Force 750 that just had the main timing chain replaced (It broke) along with a couple valves (Bent). The engine work was done by my Mechanic but I removed & reinstalled the motor.

Put it all back together and it fired up nicely. I let it idle for a bit and pulled the dipstick to make sure I hade enough oil in it. Major pressure coming out of the crankcase, it was as if I had my hand in front of the exhaust! Tons of coolant in there as well!

The guy who rebuilt it is very good and I know I put it all back together correctly. He obviously missed something, anyone have any thoughts?

Thanks,

Pete

Not only did you bend the valves i think you also had a piston with ring problems.  Also, did you replace the valve seals?  Could be getting blowby on the rings.  In regards to coolant in the crankcase i say there's a seal missing or an 

o ring broken somewhere.

Coolant in the crankcase  sounds like a cracked block  or head to me; although if the head and block  have  water passages  between them  . it could be a head gasket  problem.  Rings and valve seals will  not  let  coolant into the  crankcase ,  but  a bad head gasket or cracked block or head will  let  pressure  and coolant into the crankcase.

If there is coolant getting into the crank case you would probably have coolant and oil mixture and cause a milky result. If coolant is getting into teh combustion chanber, you'd have a good amount of white smoke when running. Either can be a head gasket, seal, or crack somewhere.

a missing seal or broken o ring in the coolant passage will also let coolant into the crankcase.

i never said valve seals will let coolant into the crankcase i simply asked a question re the valve seals as were they replaced.  Blowby comes from a broken or worn rings and usually when a valve job is done valve seals should be replaced. a broken gasket anywhere in the coolant train will allow it to gather up in the sump.

      Hi, my names jade 25. Western NC Mom of two young boys. Who wouldn’t have a fourwheeler if I hadn’t picked up learning about what it took to repair a China 110 quad. That lead to a passion of atv repair. 5 months in and I’ve learned quiet a bit and interested in helping and learning how to fix my current Honda 87 250x that’s been through some hands as well as a china 50cc dirt bike that’s been rebuilt on the outside and soon learn how to replace valve stems and piston rings.

      I am looking to see why my 2005 Grizzly  660 won't crank. I have set the valves but suspect a loose timing chain.
      When working to remove the valve cover I found a "cap tensioner case" - parts #25  - #299 on Babbitts site.
      The  cover seems to bridge the valve cover and the cylinder head. What the hell is it and what surprises will I  find if I remove it?
      Uncharted territory for me.

      Was using the quad the other day to shuttle wood from my pickup to my wood pile.  When the job was done I turned off the Quad and heard a bit of a racket from the front end.  When I got down underneath the sound seemed to be coming from the fan housing.  fan was moving in spurts and not quickly... much like a computer case fan that's had it's day.  What I know.
      Temp sensor is ok, as the fan tries to activate fan is getting some voltage as it is attempting to spin.  When I first bought it used I tested the fan direct to battery and it was fine. The fan was working ok even not direct wired as I went on a couple of rides and when stopped and idling the fan did run Seems to be free spinning with my finger read up in the manual and they require me to drop the rad.  now I'm not opposed to that as the rad has some damaged areas I want to try and straighten out.  But if I can get the fan working without, I can leave the rad as it is until next year.
      Fan assembly is about 300 bills, any work arounds or alternatives?  I even thought large computer case brushless fan.  smaller ones are about $7 larger ones better quality probably far below the 300.  They run standard 12v DC.
      Anything I should be doing before dropping the rad... other than check for obstructions even though it seems to spin, and trying to hardwire it to the battery again for a test to see if it acts the same?
