I have been using cheap envelopes to hold parts, all the bolts/nuts/fasteners that go to the part I put in an envelope and label and they put aside with the part. If you forget how it sits on the quad you can also refer to the parts diagram.

Swampcat thanks! I was useing ziplok bags but their not so easy to write on. I like yours better. Some I put in the new frame where they will be going. I forgot I started on my old quad today and have a fight on my hands getting the exhuast pipe to come off the pipe it slips onto. Dirt and some rust is winning so far. If I had Petes money I would just buy a new one and cut the old one off.

Anytime i would work on my race cars i would use those clear plastic storage containers with the dividers inside. You can write on the cover with a permanent marker and erase it with wd40.

I like using the plastic box because each compartment was the sequence in which those bolts or partz came off. Someone would also move my plastic bags so my sequences would be screwed up

That was the only one I feel it had been welded before for some reason and who ever left a hole for water to get in it's rusted on the inside. The front bumper bolts are broke off in the frame and parts on that side of the quad was loose compared to the other side. I think I got a patch job you know what I mean patch it sell it to the first sucker.

Shoot, if you had my money you would settle for a tricycle with square wheels.

If he had my $$ he would have to settle for the square wheels only !:laugh:

      I was reading another forum recently about fuel leaks and possibility of fire happening. Reminded me of an incident I had a few years ago while working at a Can Am dealership. The quad was a stolen & recovered Outlander 650 that had been tampered with. These quads have an electronic safety system, similar to their DESS system on the sleds. You cannot bypass the key switch and get spark without a computer with factory software. Anyway, I was trying to determine what was damaged since the thief had attempted to hot wire various electronic parts. I got all the extra wires removed and things looked back to stock. Pulled the spark plugs and was going to check for ignition and if the starter still worked. Well, they both worked alright and guess what - the cylinder was flooded with fuel! Instant flames with gas spraying all over...great!! I managed to use my hands to put out the fire, good thing I had on gloves (but choked they were ruined of course, haha). Seems it's possible to flood an engine with efi when you put power straight to the injectors, doh! As in much of life, you cannot take things for granted (I'd only seen carbs flood like that). And even though it had spark, the quad still needed a new ECM to run - that part alone was $1200. So lets hear your stories, crazy stuff happens every day I'm sure.

      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
