brute 750

3 posts in this topic

Just changed oil on my brute last night.Have a couple questions I cleaned the air filter with some fram air cleaner solution let dry and them sprayed with fram spray that is used on the air hog filter will this work or should I pull it off again and reclean and spray with the right oil. Might just go buy new filter and put in tonight but want to keep the old one for a spare.

You should be good with the fram oil. I used to use that stuff for a while. Any brand of foam filter oil should be good to use. I use Bel-Ray filter oil and I like how tacky it is compared to some that seem more oily.

I wouldn't worry about using it. I will suggest a Uni filter though. It fits a little more snug in there and the filter cleaner and oil can be had at dennis kirk for under $20. The filter I believe was around $20 also. I use that and the stock one. I put in the stock one when the Uni is drying after I wash it.

The reason I suggest it is because it is a little taller than the stock filter. When you hit the gas on the brute (you can't see it, but)the filter is sucked into the cage that is under it. That makes the edges a tad shorter and can possibly let dirty air in around the edges. There isn't much proof of that, but I understand that is what the filter does. Whether it actually wears on the engine more, I don't know. There are people with thousands of miles on these 750's. I have 1200 on mine and not any problems, except that I think the choke cable sticks a bit sometimes. If my memory serves correct, you have EFI, so you wouldn't have that problem.

Sorry for the book. wink

    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
