For some dumb reason I let my friend borrow my ATV because we were moving out of state and didn't have enough room to take it with us. He drives a truck and was making a trip out to our area in about two weeks so it seemed like the perfect thing to do. Well to make a long story short, he kinda ruined it after having it for about 8 months. The spark plug was out of the head and was rusty, so the inside of the head probably looks like that too, there was mouse crap all over the whole atv. The guy was saying that he thought there was a starter problem, so I took it out, in order to take it out I had to cut the wire, and took it to a shop and had it tested. It was fine. So I put the new wire, battery, and spark plug in and got it to run. But it won't idle. AT ALL! I got all of the gas out, put some carb cleaner treatment in the tank, and refilled it with gas. I noticed that there is a hose that comes out the bottem of the carb that isn't plugged into anything, is it supposed to be? and if so, where? A very little bit of gas comes out of the hose. I took the whole air filter box off the the four wheeler, and it kind of sounds like it is back fireing, but not out of the muffler, it is just a wierd sound. Does someone know of a carb diagram that would show where all the hoses go? Any suggestions to fix the problems are appreciated!
Thanks for your time,
