CCW Meltdown...WTF happend

Must have had some major thing go wrong. I would guess that the carb was not adjusted right or that the seals were out. Check the carb boots.

79 Arctic Cat Lynx No Longer will start....Please Help!

I would first check the crank seals. I had an old Cheetah the had the same problem. It happened to be the clutch side seal. I tapped on the seal with a hammer and sprayed ether around it. I ran great for about a minute until the seal began to pop out again. Replaced it and it was back to normal. Als...

1978 Polaris TX 440 f/a

I am not 100% sure but I know some of them had a pair of 38mm's. A TX 440 from 78 would have 38's. Anyone else know? As far as air cleaners I have found that they do not have much impact. I have seen a few guys use K&N's or POD's and have had a little luck. If you were to do it I would suggest incre...

OVAL RACING OF THE FUTURE?????

Vintage racing is not even close to reaching its high point. Every year there is more of a demand for the old sleds sitting in the yard or in the old barn on the hill. People are getting away from the new hi-tech sleds that require you to sell your house by a sled to the older cheap performance sled...

Vintage performance

Plastic skis are lighter and seem to hold up well. I have a custom made set on my Polaris TX and they work great. As far as hoods go I would not mess with it. The older sleds had light hoods compared to the new ones. If may help with the new sleds though.

speed

As far as vintage goes the Yamaha SRX's and the Mercury Snow twisters were fast. THe Polaris TXL was one of the best smaller liquids. Rupps were also good. As far as today Arctic Cat thundercat if you are thinking stock.

Kids Swinger Snowmobile

I also have a pea green swinger sled. It has some very odd steering and a cool gas tank location. I have parts if you need any. I think they came with a little 147cc Huscavarna single. Let me know if you need anything. Willing to trade for vintage polaris stuff. Let me know.
