1999 artic cat 500 parts

Recommended Posts

 I have a 1999 Artic Cat 500 someone gave me, everything is there, runs, but blows smoke pretty much all the time.  I've looked around on ebay for parts, but don't see most I'd want.  Are these at the end of their lives (for getting parts)? Or am I missing where to buy things like top end rebuild kits?

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      Stolen from a locked, fenced commercial yard. Lock was cut on the gate, trailer was moved to allow unloading of the ATV. Used the tri fold loading ramps on the trailer, unloaded the ATV and loaded it into the back of a 2002 to 2006 4 door White Chevrolet pickup. Stolen between 11:15 pm and 11:30 pm on Friday night March 11, 2016.
      ATV has several things done to it and on it that will be hard to find or hide and can be recognized by the owner. A video is also avaliable showing when and where and what time it was stolen.
      ATV is a 2006 Artic Cat 400 4×4, red in color with a black storage box on the back luggage rack and extra front and rear black bumpers added.

      I need a little help. I have destroyed 2 of theses now. Bought the third. I don't know the proper name of the part but when I try to connect to the side of the engine it no longer lines up. What could be causing this? Thanks in advance!

      Anyone familiar with these models? Its a new to me quad, picked it up for basically nothing... Just time and materials now, this looks expensive.
