#1 Plug the line to the oil pump.

#2 plug the barbed hose fitting bottom left side of carb. It feeds oil from pump to intake. You can plug by leaving a short piece of hose attached and bend it over on itself and keep it that way with a zip tie or wire. I usually pull the hose barb out with a pair of pliers and plug the hole with a short wood screw or machine screw. I put a generous amount of thread locking compound on the threads before installing. The screw should not extend through to the inside of the carb.

#3 I mix 50:1 for at least 15 years now.

The hose barb from the crankcase below the carb should have a hose attached that goes to your fuel pump on the firewall below the ignition coil. This hose provides the impulse to run your fuel pump from pressure changes in the crankcase.

Hey Dirt, Well done, do you do something special with the easy out? I almost never get them to work. Is that the 12mm idler bolt?

It's been fifty fifty with an easy out. Last week I worked on a broken Elan adjuster bolt. No extraction. Drilled it centered and straight so I was able to drill the bolt so thin I could take it out in pieces. Like a wire uncoiling. Then I ran a tap through to clean up the threads.

Yes 12mm idler bolt. 12mm head anyway.

No expert, but I try to drill them centered, straight and all the way through. The one above wasn't as straight as it could have been.

I checked it out, all the ports in the fuel pump are used?

What is the deal strapped up to the dash with fuel lines going in to it? Thinking I better download a manual.

Grub it is the venting system. Both the oil and fuel tanks have a vent that lead to this box, which has an open air vent.

Trap I have about 50/50 luck too. But it increases dramatically if you can heat it first before you try to extract. If you can heat it up red hot you have about 99% chance if you have a good grip.

I tend to use heat before I break it...if I break it then I drill it and then apply heat allow to cool and give it try.

Always best to center punch for a good center drilling.

If that fails...I drill and retap.


Oh....a trick I learn back a few years was to use a reverse tap instead of an easy-out FYI !

The players:

1986 Yamaha Bravo Longtrack 136x15X3/4 track
2009 Yamaha Nytro Longtrack 154X16X 21/2 track.

Location: Skwentna, AK
Date 1/25/12

Terrain flat and in the woods.

The winner: you know, why bother saying it.

If you drive a Nytro out here bring snowshoes, a shovel and a friend who drives a Bravo that will break trail in the woods for you and help you get your pig unstuck.

In conclusion Bravo's suck I'll take all you have. Thank You for your time.

The guy I bought this rig had the fuel lines royally screwd up, started from scratch and now it runs like a top.

There is no fan shroud over the head..... Anybody run without it?

It really directs the cool air through the fins. A lot better cooling.

Has anyone swapped out the air box with a uni filter? I just put one on my Enticer long track and it sure makes for more room while working under there and draws air from the warmer middle rather than the colder right side. It idles fine but don't know how the top end is. Don't want to blow her up though?????

Nice to know mine is worth more than I paid for it. Probably the same figuring inflation.

I never made one before but i bet it can be done. But alot faster to buy one from a snowmachine dealer. i paid $60 for the one i got. After time iunvested building one you can have one bolted on by the time you have it made :-)
