It's been awhile

Recommended Posts

It's been awhile since my grandpa's death. Mostly over at his house cleaning out over 40 years of junk in that basement. No really we took out over 30 bags *the big black bags* of trash,2 dryer's, and 1 washer, and didnt even dent the basement.

So I'm busy to even get on here. just letting you guys know whats up.

Ya thanks guys.

Ya been still cleaning that house got it down to maybe 30years left of junk left lol.

So far we had 2 yard sales at my mom's cousin's place, and when were going to have 1 at grandpa's house we have to move the truck to are house.

But awhile back I found out I was getting grandpa's truck he had, and a few other stuff.

Very sad he only drove this sonoma for about over a year.

Bought it with like 34k miles on it, and it has 41k since he last drove it a week before his death.

Not quiet yet in a few weeks we need to change the plates from Illinois to Missouri plates, and have it tested in Missouri to.

We might just kept the truck over at his house till we sell the house.Unless I want to kept it at our house.

looks like its still in great condition

Ya he always hand wash it atleast every 2weeks never been out in the sun much,only has a little piece chipped off under the rear bumper getting out of the driveway I notice.

i'd be holding my head high everytime i drove it, thinkin my grandpa was sittin in the passenger seat listenin to the radio with me.

Ya when I heard the news about that I was getting it. When I sat in it I started breaking down crying since. We used to drive it everytime I was up there

But 1 thing he never used that radio in there besides I think 3 times. He always had it off with the window down.

So I tested it out, and sounds good.Didnt put a CD in it yet to check that but I think that will be good to.


But ya always kept it clean, and always maintenance it when needed to.

Still miss him tho

Sounds good. I have a piece of my Grandfather with me very often. I carried one of his knives everywhere I went for a long time. I also used to carry one of his pocket watches when I dressed up. I miss him a lot and it has been 17 years. I wish the most that he could have met his great-grandson they would have gotten along very well.

I'll try to hurry back LOL.

But there is mostly 1 thing I will change is to take off that GMC emblem in the grill, but its all 1 piece so I might need to buy a new grill.


It's also a SLS, I just love the sport suspension thats good on the corners, good power, 16 - 22 city and 23 - 28 highway mpg. Mostly everything I need is in that truck

Unless its snows, and getting out of are neighborhood o boy I got a better chance getting my ATV up it in 2wd.

      The studs in the sprocket hub are stripped out. The hub is probably walloed out also. Probably will have to have a new sprocket hub. I doubt I have the ability nor the tools needed for this job. Thanks for all suggestions/opinions!

      Hi guys
      My 87 Bear 350 won't start and could use a hand.
      Turn key on and Oil light turns on and then slowly fades out. (I think this is key to this) No start, not even a tick.
      battery and connections good
      A Solenoid post jump turns it over
      Neutral Safety Switch wire attached and seems good
      It has not had a wire/switch on Rear Brake Pedal ever since I had it.
      Any thoughts on some other things to troubleshoot this??

      I just want to clarify that i was doing the timing correct. I wanted to adjust the valves, so, I removed the spark plug, I removed that little black plastic cap on the side, then, i turned the engine counterclockwise until the "T" lined up with the small groove on the threads where that black cap screws in. Then i checked the valve clearances.
      So, what is the "F" mark for?
      I hope the "T" was the right mark to use.  lol

      My Yamaha Big Bear shifts through all the gears good, goes into reverse smoothly, but when i go to get out of reverse it takes a lot of effort to get it back to first gear, and even then it does not go very smoothly, have to pull up on the pedal really hard, anyone else ever had this problem. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

      I am working on a basket case for a friend.  It is a 98 Big Bear (YFM350FWB).  It came with a parts machine which is a 96, which I am coming to find out is VERY different from his machine.
      Anyway, first thing is first.  I checked compression, 150psi.  Valves are set correctly, and the engine is in time.  I cleaned the carb, and there was some junk in the passages.  It is a chinese carb, which I figured from the lack of markings or lettering altogether.
      The bike runs.  It idles ok, but breaks up badly under acceleration.  Pulling a new spark plug shows it is running lean.  White strap, with no black whatsoever.  So I have the carb adjusted with the mixture screw out way too much (about 5 turns), and the diaphragm needle lifted to the top slot.  It is still not getting enough fuel (or too much air).  It backfires through the carb, and cannot get above idle without carrying on.  The carb boot is in good shape, so it isn't pulling any air there.  I did test this as well by spraying ether around the boot when running, looking for intake leaks.
      Anything big I am missing here?  I am starting to believe that this chinese carb is the issue.  This quad came with the original carb, which I would like to rebuild and use, but the mixture screw is totally stuck, and stripped way down in its recess.  
      Thanks for any assistance.
