Pilgrim Psych Center on Long Island

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any recent info on the rail transit system proposition slated for Pilgrim Psych Center? The land consists of 700+ acres of "preserve" and the NYSDEP and Park Rangers have been confiscating/impounding and fining ATV riders for years. This is also a result of enviromentalist stating that the area is habitat to native wildlife and plant species. Supposedly illegal ATV use is encroaching on the wildlife and plant life. :aargh:

This is what I have gathered from various websites as most of the NYSDOT NYSDEP land proposals and findings are in Lawyer speak and Im having trouble decifering them.


What I find funny is that there is a huge junkyard made from ilegal dumping on the grounds.


450 acres was sold to a private developer and is still trying to make "Heartland Complex" a residental and office development. Its still in the works as of this year but construction is halted possibly due to financial reasons. How is this preserving wildlife?? :aargh:

Also a proposed rail system that would known as Pilgrim Intermodal Freight Center is in the works. This is an area where train cargo can be loaded onto trucks. NO enviromental impact here!:aargh:

I am sick of rich people/politicians and Long Island being their personal playground. Does LI need a revised way of shipping in cargo, absolutely! Trucking costs into LI are astronomical, but don't hide behind the enviroment! ATV use there does not have a major impact on the enviroment compared to truck/train diesel emissions. ATV riders wont clear acre upon acre of forest area to build a parking lot or an office. This area at this time is unused and revenue can be collected in the form of permits. If noise is a problem then have a db limit. Have a dedicated biking or hiking area. Fine people who litter or dump there. :aargh:

Stop hiding the fact that this development of land is going to make only a few people alot of money when this area can be enjoyed by many. :aargh:

Thank you and goodnight:aargh:

Well said!!! I've never ridden out there, but am a Long Islander at heart being born out there and having family there. Unfortunately, this kind of crap goes on all over where there is money influencing decisions. Follow the higher taxes and you follow the BS!:skeptic:

Well long island is. Aside from 3 small mx tracks (riding membership starts at 1000 per year) there is a not for profit "safety course" that gets together a few sundays a year but donation is 500 plus 35 per ride. Plus its a slow ride no fast trail riding. So what to do.... Ride illegally or drive 4 hours to a riding spot. Neighborhood sump pits are good riding areas but illegal. New housing development areas are fun but again illegal. The pine barrens out on the east end is state land and is heavily patroled by RoRz (park Rangers on Raptors). First offense is 500 fine and automatic impound. A release of an impound is 1000. So yeah it boils my blood when I read this chit. And so far I havent been caught but I think im running out of time.

      I'm looking for people to ride with. I live in the GTA, but often ride Haliburton or Kawartha trails, and have recently discovered a bunch of trails that don't belong to any club, if anyone is looking to ride.

      I have a 2003 Kodiak 450 that i purchased a while back with around 300 hours on it. It has never ran right from the beginning. Initially i thought it was just a carburetor issue because it was all clogged up from sitting for months. It has been cleaned, rebuilt, and taken off probably about 10 times troubleshooting this problem. I have quadruple checked everything including float height ect and it is set correctly, the jets are also brand new, needle and seat have been pressure tested as well. So after all of that I am convinced that the carburetor is not the culprit. I have an issue where the idle is very choppy, almost as if it is misfiring with a rich condition on top of that. I can use a brand new plug and run the machine for just a few minutes and it will be a dry and and coated in black carbon build up. The exhaust also has a strong smell at idle. I had trouble restarting it when hot for a while, but i adjusted the valves and it seemed to solve that issue. They were both way out of tolerance (tight). The weird thing is, outside of idle it seems to run pretty well. 
      So with all that being said I have ruled out the carb/valves/compression and moved on to the ignition and this is where i have a few questions about factory specifications. I guess the main question I have is, how strict are these tolerances? And could them being off by this amount cause the issue I am having? Do all three of these parts really need to be replaced? I would like to know before I spend the money on these new parts, and it not fix my problem. Below I will list what the specs were in the service manual along with the reading i got.  This is my first experience testing ignition components. I just found it odd that all 3 are out of spec according to the service manual.
      Spark plug cap resistance: 10 kΩ at 20 °C (68 °F)
      My Reading: 8.90 kΩ
      Primary coil resistance: 0.18 ~ 0.28 Ω at 20 °C (68 °F)
      My Reading: Fluctuated between 0.4 - 0.5 Ω
      Secondary coil resistance: 6.32 ~ 9.48 kΩ at 20 °C (68 °F)
      Reading was within the specified range.
      Pickup coil resistance: 459 ~ 561 Ω at 20 °C (68 °F)
      Reading was within specified range.
      Rotor rotation direction sensing coil resistance: 0.085 ~ 0.105 Ω at 20 °C (68 °F) 
      My reading was 0.3 Ω
