Quadrunner44

1980s Suzuki Quadrunner No Start

Recommended Posts

I have an older 1980s Suzuki quadrunner red lt 4wd (250)

so just finished putting it all back together and was running fine just needed to adjust the rebuilt carb

bf decides to hook up an air chuck to the gas tank because it got a shot of air in the gas line well 120psi didn’t agree with any of the parts including the new carb 

end result : new battery new carb now it just clicks (one single click) won’t turn over 

hard to pull start gets hung up (unless I remove the spark plug ) gas flooded out the first time but now does nothing purchases a new starter waiting the arrival 

could there be damage to the crank shaft or pistons etc? Or install the new starter and try to fire it up ? What caused the starter to die after he flooded everything with gas was working fine. 

Thank you

I'd recommend hooking up the new starter & cranking it over with the spark plug removed.

Good Idea to ground the plug while doing so. Keep pumping it until there's no sign of fuel.

Very important: don't let the plug spark anywhere near that fuel getting cleared!

Not very likely there's damage to the crank/piston, just don't turn it over without the plug out.

I pull started with the plug out and no more fuel comes out but when I get the new starter in a few days I’ll update thanks for the help

Did you try hitting the starter with a hammer a few times? Might have landed on a dead spot. Tap it a few times and see if it cranks.

That was the first thing I tried then check the fuses, tested battery, tested solenoid,  everything was running fine before the air chuck

When you pulled the carburetor off the atv did you inspect it to see that all it’s parts were there? Could anything have blown into the cylinder head from the carburetor that’s causing this.  
Have you checked the oil level and lower half of the engine to see it’s not completely flooded with fuel and oil ? 

 

And I almost forgot welcome to Quadcrazy @Quadrunner44 !

Thanks !!

And I Checked the carb it was intact the air just blew through the bottom rubber gasket and was leaking fuel. took the time to change the oil and put in a new filter

starter won’t fire (still waiting on delivery)

Have you spun the engine to see if it’s spinning free without the spark plug? 

You should also bench test the starter by strapping it down to the work bench and putting 12 v to it to see if it spins.

      I have a 99 250 Quadrunner. Currently has no spark. It would run for 5 minutes, then shut off. After it cooled down about 20-30 minutes, it would start again. I ordered a new stator and found the old one was damaged (copper windings broken)  I installed the new stator, filled with oil and now it has no spark. Any assistance would be helpful

      So where to start my son's LT80 stop running a couple months ago. Naturally I assumed I had a carburetor issues or the peacock valve. After replacing those two items and ensuring I had a spark I started doing my homework thus finding this page. After all the post I have read the next natural thing would be compression I did a compression test today and it was only 60 after spraying WD-40 in it so off comes the cylinder head and The Jug to my surprise the cylinder walls and all the gaskets are pristine so I am totally stumped no idea why I would not have compression when everything looks brand new even the Rings look great any help would be appreciated thanks in advance

      Hi all, new to this forum so thanks in advance for the help.

      I have recently brought a 2013 power steering fuel injected foreman 500.

      It has a crack in the front casing and was running rough. I have since replaced the front engine casing and this has made no difference to the engine performance.

      It starts and idles but bogs down and starts to die once throttle is applied.

      It maybe be but it also sounds very load.

      I have uploaded a video link of it.

Was redoing a lakota and got a buyer for it and a hope a deal on this, was 1200 with all new cv joints and bushings and a few other items.
