1992 Prowler problems with ground, CDI, etc.
Hi guys and ladies,
Well I picked up this sled several years ago and it's been sitting on the back burner until now. It's a 1992 440 carbed Prowler with 2300 miles on it.
Here are my questions and issues:
1- I'm not getting spark, so I'm trying to find where the ground wire attaches so I can clean it and still can't find it, so where does it mount? Not much room in there at all.
2- I tried jumping the black and brown wire and still nothing.
3- I removed and cleaned the carbs and replaced all of the fuel lines and installed a new fuel pump. I'm getting fuel and oil to the engine, but just no spark
4- Do you think it's the CDI if the ground is good?
5- Had a bad kink in the throttle cable, so I'm replacing that since it would stick and not release. How do you get the cover off the handlebars?
6- Stator issues?
7- Coil issues?
8- How do you disconnect the jet needle from the throttle valve? How is the plate attached where the large spring sits?
I'm a newbie to snowmobiles but not to doing mechanical work, so any help would be appreciated.
I downloaded the manual and I hope that will help with some of the issues.
