Warn 424 alternative

Recommended Posts

For you guys that have full time 4wd like a Honda 300, 350 Rancher, etc that is all time 4wd Warn used to make a 424 that was a manual disconnect that replaced the front drive shaft. Warn sold the patent to Wide Open and they made a cheaper made unit. They were about 300 but are out of production. The few left are bringing 800 now. So here's my question; Maybe I'm reaching here, but since there is basically no such thing as a 424 anymore, have any of you fine folks thought through whether you can make a transfer case that will disconnect? If you could move either gear forward a half inch it would be disconnected. Thoughts?

The rancher ones are still available but there's like 3 in the US left right now for the 300 and they are bringing $800 or so. Keep in mind a year ago these were $179. Thus why the search for an alternative

I'm back. I stripped my 300 for parts. Good Warn disconnect, wheels, winch.

I bought a 2002 Rancher 350 ES with a Warn disconnect that had the cable ripped off an that left it stuck  in 2WD. I removed the Warn driveshaft and the unit functioned when I cut off the bunged up cable. I don't want to take the cable and control off the 300 unit, but Warn cable kits don't seem to be available either. I am thinking of making my own cable with a control lever or such to operate it.

      Howdy y'all, I'm trying to fix a neighbors 2015 Brute Force 300. Came in with hard to start and won't idle except on choke issue. I pulled the carb and found the pilot jet as well as the emulsion tube partially clogged. Cleaned up everything, put it back together, still having issues...  It will start right up on choke and will also start off choke if you give it just a touch of throttle but it absolutely will not idle unless it's choked just a touch. Also, excuse my ignorance but I'm assuming the "dial" thingy attached to the carb that turns in and out is for setting idle??

      Have a 1998 AC 300 2x4, Just installed a new carburetor. Engine starts easy but the choke RPMs are very hi and take along time (5-10 mins when cold out). After engine has warmed up choke releases and it idles and runs fine., It does no have an electric choke. The choke lever is never used and it seems like an auto choke? Long story short, how can I lower the choke rpm levels?
      Also, carb came with a spare145 jet, not 100% sure what is installed. Could this impact choke RPMs?
      Any help and information greatly appreciated.

      Hey I have a 1997 big bear 350 4x4
      I replaced the shifter shaft and the shift arm linkage and the rod when I installed them all I was unaware that you had to line the dot on the shifter shaft with the gap on the linkage arm gap put it all back  together and rode it I can't get it to shift in the right gears  I can move the shift cam by hand and goes in different gears but with the shifter shaft in it riding I can't put it in R or N 
      Anyone know how to line up the shifter shaft and the shift cam s

      This is something I'm extremely curious about. Has anyone ever attempted to buy a quad (or any other vehicle) from an impound lot? I've always wondered if this could be a bargain, or a waste of time. Google searches do turn up some helpful results. Looks like the state of NJ holds auctions online which I'd be a bit hesitant about.
      My online searches haven't really turned up any results of anyone buying an ATV this way. I'd be really curious if anyone tried this, or knows someone who has. I've actually found a couple pages with online auctions for my state, but none had ATVs.
