I have a 94 skandic with a 377 in it. I'm having a problem with the right side cylinder. When I put a new plug in it, it will run good for a short period of time then the right side plug fouls. It's happened on the last 2 rides. I've changed the plug caps with no change. I'm not sure what to go for next. Do I change the wires?

Try a champion plug, RN2C.

I had issues like that with my 1996 Touring E 380. NGK plugs have a narrow part of the anode that acts like a fuse. Other manufacturers don't have that.

I put in the Champion plugs and it seems to be working. I have only put a small amount of miles on the sled but I was looking to see as what to gap the plugs. I found a chart that indicates a .016 gap, that seems to be very small. Can anyone confirm this?

Pretty sure the manual calls for a .018 gap.

That is a question I'm not really sure of. I know that almost everything I've owned I've ran with the gap at .028. Including a 95 Summit and 96 Touring.

Took the sled out for another ride and it ran great. The only problem that I now have is that for such a small motor it sure drank a lot of fuel. The machine was full to the sight fuel gauge and I put 35 miles on it . When I got home my fuel sight gauge was a;most empty. That seems like an awful lot of fuel. By my calculation I may have seen 8 MPG. The spark plugs looked like they may have been running rich (black).
I also wanted to know if anyone knows what power source I can use for a heated visor. I've poked around and have only been able to find a very low voltage <1 volt at idle and a little better than 2 volts when I rev it up. The mag is putting out 29 volts. I saw someone use power from the voltage regulator, but up to now have not been able to locate it.

Remember the voltage is AC. Pulling from any of the yellow - yellow/black wires should work fine.

I tried to hook up to the power supply for the back up alarm who's color is yellow for positive and yellow and black is negative. Didn't seem to work.

If it requires 12V DC it won’t work

Thanks again for all the info. I will be running a 12 volt battery and we'll see how that works.

If you want to be able to charge the battery, you need a voltage regulator for an e-start. Just about any from that year sled will work. Grand Touring, for example.
