gas tank

10 posts in this topic

My gas tank is cracked where you put the gas cap on, it's plastic. Is there any way of fixing it without getting a new one.

No not very likely,we had a '89 Indy Trail that had the same problem. We just called a snowmobile salvage yard,can't remember the name,and they shipped it to us. They're very easy to install,on that one it was anyways,not sure what you have for a sled.

What type of sled is it. Arctic Cat had a recall on some sleds with that problem.

I had a 04 firecat f6, and that recall was for my sled and some others that year. I had no cracks, but had the tank replaced on that recall. which was great becuase my fuel gage quite working.

Polaris and Arcic Cat both had recalls on the fuel tanks because they were breaking off at the filler neck. Call the dealer and give them the VIN off the sled. If the VIN falls into the recall you will get a new tank for free. Even if your VIN is not included in the recall, any decent dealer should be able to get a tank at no cost to you because it is a known problem.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work.
