I last rode my sled on sunday and its now thursday....It ran perfect. It leaks gas so it ran out of gas while sitting in my yard. I put some in (premixed) today and tried to start it. On the first pull it feels like normal. 2nd pull it locks up compltely. 3rd pull it comes out a bit and locks up. then it repeats.

What would cause this?

Also After an hour of letting it sit i came back with a friend and we tried pourin a bit of gas down into the spark plugs and turned it over and nothin happened. After a few pulls we put it at wide open and i pulled it and the rope snapped and it went back into the recoil....What now?

It is a 2003 440 sno pro l/c.

You say it leaks gas? I would bet you are hydro locking that leaking gas is also leaking into the motor and filling it with fuel. I dont work on cats much but maybe someone else on here can tell you if that motor has a case drain so you can try and get all the fuel out of the motor. this just happened to my buddies thundercat and his was a real pita to get drained and back up and running.

Once you get the recoil fixed, pull the plugs and crank the engine to see if gas squirts out. Keep the kill switch off.

I did that last night and pulled it over 4 times and it squirted out gas every time and it wasn't locking up when i pulled it...is that bad or good, and how do i fix it?

i went out today and i was able to turn the primary clutch and the pistons both moved good, and it sounded like the rings were good.

Fixed the recoil..somewhat but it turns over. Pulled it until it was a light mist and it fired up. Rode it good with a friend, 2up'd catwalk straight up and down and we both fell off lol. good times. thanks for the help guys. I just smacked the floatbowls on the carbs, on monday i'll be bringing it in my power mechanics class and take them off.
