  1. Past hour
  2. Today
  3. Maybe try a better head gasket and some of that liquid gasket with it? Heck idk maybe throw some super glue in there too ya never know😂👍👍👍 sounds like my 350 warrior..blew its head gasket and also was leaking oil into the airbox thru the carb..but somehow still wasnt smoking lol
  4. Usually a sign of a warped head where compression can leak by and burn/blow out the gasket or the head bolt is not tight or stripped. Secondly it could a bad gasket set your using? Either way it sucks, if you find the head warped and not going to mill it down then just throw two gaskets on it and tighten down in a cris cross pattern to make sure the gasket tightens down properly.
  5. Nice work @Arizona!!!!!!! Definitely want to see some pics brother.
  6. Yesterday
  7. Got it out of the paint shop today lol, Decided to take carb apart since he rebuilt it. Nothing was right as I figured, he even jacked up the coiled return spring for the metering rod slide assembly. Had the a/f screw bottomed out and didn't even clean inside. Main jet was wrong size (at least he gave me old parts) Managed to get an intake boot off e/bay for 8.50 DId I mention 1 of the exhaust bolt holes on cyl stripped. Gonna tap it and reinstall it. I ran a fuel hose to the carb and batt charger to it and it fired up using the key! I guess on the bright side the elect is ok, still have to check charging. Have to shoot some pics in a day or so.

  8. Can you believe this thing blew a new head gasket after a few weekend rides? Granted, it was beat on in a mud hole every weekend, but this is a new head gasket on a 400 Kodiak. Bummer.
  9. Ok , got the motor out.. Took off the clutch cover. The shift shaft is working properly and all springs are intact and working properly. The shift cam assembly seems to only be turning between 1st and 2nd gear. No neutral or 3rd gear. Next I will disassemble the engine and split the case.... It would have been so nice if it was a spring..... More updates coming...
  10. It sucks, definitely post some pictures when u get back into it.
  11. Thanks for the response... I had a feeling splitting the case was going to be needed... All I had left was to put on the plastics.... I will update here with what I find.. Thanks again...
  12. Absolutely, and its a simple test to determine that. Are you familiar with the process?
  13. Well timing is spot on so its on too the next thing!! The valves and head look brand new. This is a tough one! Everything else tested good electrically. I may pull the flywheel and maybe replace it. It could possibly be a bad cdi but im going to hold off until the last minute before i pull the trigger on that.
  14. It honestly sounds like you have a broken spring in the transmission someplace. Especially if the neutral light is coming on on. I would start at the neutral safety switch and see whats going on in there and if it looks ok then unfortunately your going to have to split the transmission again.
  15. Hi All, I did a total restoration on a 2003 Yamaha Raptor 80. Rebuilt the engine and tranny.. Started it up today and it runs great. Took it for a ride and the transmission worked perfectly. Adjusted the carb a little more and went for another ride. It ran awesome, pulled into the workshop shifted into neutral ( Neutral light came on) and shut off the bike. went to roll it and noticed she would not roll. Turned on the key and neutral light was on... After some troubleshooting I found that she is in first gear with the neutral light on and will not shift into neutral... It seems to up shift fine into 2nd and 3rd and then back down to 1st. I am hoping somebody can shed some light on what is happening... Thanks for any help...

  19. This is what I have on the gravity railroad. Planes 10 and 11 are within Lost Trails property, the rest is not. I have given tours of the gravity planes with a group of hikers who also like to photograph abandoned railroads, Plane 9 is a short walk from the property boundary. https://www.nepaview.com/pcc-gravity-railroad.html
  20. Most of the manuals I have seen covers the different versions of a model within the specified manual.
  21. Looks cool ,I have not seen these.
  22. I ran auto repair shops for over 23 yrs so I can relate. Something as little as crank seals which were only 25 bucks but require a lot of labor. Same with piston etc. I always keep track of the money spent on parts, batteries and tires are the worst. as far as hourly rate I never gave it much thought as I do it to enjoy it but if I did I would figure in about 30 p/hr The going rate is probably 60 - 100 at a stealership and the mechanic never sees that kind of money. Az
  23. I am looking at one right now that my neighbor has sitting under a tarp. Hasn't ran in the 15 years that I have lived here. He just don't want to let it go. It looks to be in pretty good shape though. I also like to pick up projects like this. Good luck
  24. Would this list meet your requirement prior to purchasing an ATV? Remember, I'm at novice level - these are things I think the average Joe could/should check. Feel free to comment and I'll add it to my list. Going to look at what's supposed to be a 1998 Arctic Cat 454 on Saturday - likely a bit too much machine for my level.
  25. Good stuff mike. Maybe we can get a private tour. Lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
