1980 Ski Doo Everest 500 E

My main Ski Doo mechanic that I've gone to in the past claims its the points and condensors. Sometimes the machine will run great. Last winter it ran fine for 2 hours straight then one cylinder droped while I was out on the road. I pulled over and changed the plug in the bad cylinder. It fired and I...

1980 Ski Doo Everest 500 E

Yes I am holding the plug wire along side the plug itself. When I do that I get spark and the cylinder kicks on. When I place the plug wire back on the plug firmly I lose spark and the machine cuts off. Now thats just on the one cylinder. The other one is totaly dead even if I pull the plug wire off...

1980 Ski Doo Everest 500 E

I'm having a problem with my Everest 500 E. I just had the points, condensors and coils changed. The timing is set and the compression on both cylinders is 131. Plugs are fouling out like crazy and it wont stay running. Each cylinder takes a turn in dropping. As I crank the engine I get nothing. If ...

1982 Ski-Doo Citation 4500 change to mix Fuel?

I have books for 80 & 81 sleds. I'm sure the 81 diagram I have will be the same for your 83 citation but don't quote me on that. What I can do is take a digital picture of the diagram and sent it to you via e-mail. Leave your e-mail address and I will send it.

1982 Ski-Doo Citation 4500 change to mix Fuel?

If you have a fax I can fax you anything I have. This book was special ordered right from my Ski Doo dealer so I don't think you will find it anywhere other than ordering it from your dealer. Let me know what you need.

79 citation breaks down when hot.

I have an 80 Everest with the same problem. Turned out the points and condensers were bad. I'm also changing the ignition coils. I would also check your compression.

everest 464

Jason, My 80 Everest 500 E never dropped a cylinder at high RPM. I don't think it has a rev limiter on it. Although I have done in the past, I dont take the RPM past 7500 just because of the age of the machine. At 7000 RPM steady on an open straight away it takes me to about 80 MPH and for as old as...

1982 Ski-Doo Citation 4500 change to mix Fuel?

I have a mechanics shop manual for 1980 & 1981 Ski Doo sleds which have wiring diagrams for all the sleds that year. I'm not sure how different they are because yours is a 82' and these are for 80 & 81 supplement. Let me know if I can help.
