Cat just won't run right!

I would make sure that nothing is nesting in your airbox. Lots of smoke usually equals little or no air.

Runaway CAT!

If you have fuel leaking out of the exhaust header, you don't have an air leak. Air leaks cause a lean mixture. Assuming that the suspect cylinder is firing, I'd check your carbs and see if you have a float sticking. Also check to see that your enrichment circuits are closing completely and not hang...

Do SPLITFIRE plugs realy work?

Splitfire plugs fall under the "Snake oil" category. They don't improve HP or performance or gas mileage. People who install them make all these "Testimonials" because they put them in a vehicle that hasn't had new plugs put in it for 85,000 miles. Replacing old plugs with OEM plugs would make a hug...

Air Box

Airboxes are actually very under-rated. The first thing that people seem to do is remove them. Why? Before the use of reed valves in sled motors there was nothing to stop the crankcase pulses from going back through an open carb. The airboxes were designed to take advantage of that pulse and direct ...

if i switch to mikuni's will i make more power

Don't confuse a primer with a choke/enrichment circuit. They are two different things. A mikuni is equiped with an enrichment circuit. This is essentially a choke without having a butterfly to restrict airflow. A bowl type carburator has a choke or enrichment circuit. These carburators also require ...

Seeking older sleds...

You've got expensive taste. 74' and 75' Sno twisters are still somewhat reasonable. You can find a nice one for under $1500. The 76' is a different story. The 440 is worth the most and a real nice one can bring in upwards of $6000. The Arctic "Z".........a decent 76' is going to run you about $3000....

Snow Week wants Jacques to retire?

I raced at the World Series in Maine in 1986. Jacques almost injured two people on two separate occasions racing through the pits. Everybody idling @ walking speed and Jacques feels that he must be doing a minimum of 40 mph at all times. They wanted to throw him out but he wined too much. He seemed ...

OT- Seriously...this is down right sickening!

That show really, really pisses me off. Their attitude toward the treatment of animals is horrific. I've written so many "F*** you" letters to those morons, we are practically on a first name basis. I also agree with the eating pig's balls and all that other crap. Show me someone who will dive 200 f...

how do u take a belt off??

Your NOT taking the secondary off! As the sled sits right now, your belt is sitting at the top of the secondary, correct? You want to to "unwind" the secondary so it spreads apart and the belt slides down further inside. This will give you enough slack in the belt to pull it off the primary clutch.
