Went over everything twice with three people to find any sensors that may have been left unplugged. Nothing. Only other thing done at the time was new plugs and the little boot things on that crazy A$$ ignition module thing.
Jr. The nasty engine mount on the front of that engine has three bolts holding it to the block. How the crap do I get those out without pulling the engine or dropping the sub frame? Believe me, a hole saw has crossed my mind on this one... Any suggestions? I can get them backed out but they just hit the fender well.
P.*. Thanks for the vote of confidence on setting timing. I sorta assumed that after I read the manual. How do I get that blasted cover off though?!
Hence why i feel you have walked into a mine field and the reason I do not own a Quad...lol
We in the past have actually unbolted mounts, and I forget if we screwed with the subframe... we managed to jack the engine all around Via a board of wood and managed the bolts out...A royal PITA..
If you remove the torque axis mount bolts at the fender well, it should allow you to move the engine up and down with a jack and ofcourse the old trusty board of wood... If memory serves that ggave us just enough room to get the bolts out( don't quote me on that )... Been a while seince I have played with a Quad...
and to get that cover off you will have to have a puller to pull the crank pulley, I don't remember if an idler has to be removed or not... I don't think the alternator is in the way..
Again its a PITA
