Help a rookie out-84 big red

Recommended Posts

My girlfriends dad has a 84 Big Red, he bought new, it is like miont condition, all original. now he is old. So how can I tell what size the engine is?

It has reverse with low and hi range trans 4 spd autmatic.

Im not into ATV'S, im a sledhead, and gear head...trying to help a old man out.

He wants to sell it and buy something more stable like a smaller 4 wheeler.

So how can i find out engine size and value?

Thanks,

Carl:aargh:

Well, does it say anything else on the machine? I'm guessing either a 125, 200, or 250...I know, but look around for numbers.

ATC70, ATC110, ATC125M, ATC200ES Big Red, ATC200M, ATC200S, ATC200x, ATC250R is what was available.

      Does anyone know how to access the check engine codes on a 2018 450 sportsman. Just changed battery and spark plug . It runs fine but the light is on and I need this to plow snow and need it reliable. Any ideas . Thanks

      I have a 99 Kodiak 400 4X4 that I picked up for $300.  The previous owner had modified the foot shifter by welding a piece of rebar to it so he could hand shift while plowing.  As you can imagine, the allows for much more torque on the shifter than it was designed to have, and he broke the stopper off of the the shift mechanism.  No big deal, I ordered the part and put it back together, went through the carburetor and off we go, it runs pretty good.  
      The first thing I noticed is that when I put the shifter all the way down it goes into reverse, I'm supposed to twist a knob to get it to reverse but this seems to be disabled.  Also, once in reverse, it's a bugger to get back out.  I have to hold the shifter up, then quickly back down and up again to get it to come out.  All forward gears work fine, clutch is tight, no problems.
      The reverse cable and lever are in tact and seem to move freely.  
      My question is this:  What does one normally have to do to get this thing into reverse?  I assume put it in neutral, twist the knob, kick the shifter down.  Does the brake need to be applied?  I'm not sure what's going on here, I suspect it's been 'modified' as it goes into reverse without the proper precautions, just not sure if the mods were external on internal.
       
      thanks

      Just bought a LT 230 anything I should watch for. It runs and drive good. Just don't want no surprises

      When it is  cold outside, say 35 deg F and colder, it is very difficult to shift to Reverse from neutral.  Engine temp doesn't have an effect.  I apply the brakes hard with the hand lever and the foot pedal.  In another post I read that high idle can affect shifting when the engine temp is warm. 
      I will try it with lower idle speed once I find the screw.  In the interim, can you tell me if there is some sort of adjustment for the shifter?
      Thank you
