  1. Thank you very much toodeep and shadetree that make sense. I have wondered how that all worked. I like knowing how things work. Thanks again Mark
  2. I have a 1986 Honda Fourtrax 350. I have a question about the fuel system. What dose the fuel cut relay do? Its not hooked to sense the fuel pressure to the carb.. Dose the fuel pump run all the time the switch is on? thanks for your help Mark
  3. Thanks, I will order one today. I thought it looked like a 18mm fine. Thanks again Mark
  4. I have a 1986 Honda Fourtrax 350 and would like to pull off the flywheel. What size in the bolt that you thread into the end of the flywheel to pop it off? I have tried different pullers with no luck. I need to change the starter clutch that is on the back of the flywheel. Mark
  5. I have a 1986 Honda 350 Fourtrax that I was thinking of moving / replacing the gas tank. The gas tank is under the seat and I was thinking of putting on a motorcycle gas tank above the motor. My question is will I still need to use the fuel pump to pump fuel to the carb.? Will the carb. work without pressure from the pump? I will make sure there is a fuel shut-off on the new tank.
  6. Thanks Fishfiles I was thinking of doing the work myself, The cylinder still has the X marks on the walls from when it was honed. Was thinking of running the hone in the cylinder and just putting in new rings. The valve guides and seals I was thinking of changing. If things looked worse I would consider sending it out for rebuild.
  7. So I have found some time to pull the motor off the second 86 honda fourtrax 350 that I picked up. The person that I bought it from told me he stoped riding it because it was smoking. I pulled the head off, removed the piston. The cylinder looks very good, the connecting rod bearing end that go's into the piston looks good. I'm thinking that I should do just the top end rebuild. Who would you recommend that I buy the parts from? Should I avoid after market parts? Should I also change valve seats and guides? Is there a top end rebuild kit that I could get that would have rings, all the gaskets I need? Thanks
  8. My experience using the Timberline chain sharpener has not been as good as I had hoped. Maybe its me. I have sharpened my 404 chain on my processor like six times and what I see is the sharpener files the chain more on one side than the other. Tried different things and still the teeth on one side are being filed down more on one side. Maybe its because the chain is a large chain 404. Over all not happy spending 130.00 for the sharpener. For years I have used this Oregon chain sharpener and been very happy. This is my second one and still works great.
  9. Thanks Shadetree Hope to get back to work on the wheeler in a couple weeks.
  10. For me, not everyone filing the chain on my wood processor is not so easy because I file the chain on the processor. One side when filing is easy to do the other side hard to reach. With the timberline sharpener you stand on one side to do all the filing. When filing the rakers I run a flat file over the raker one time after every 6 or 7 filings. That seems to work.
  11. I ordered a Timberline chainsaw sharpener to sharpen my 404 chain on my wood processor that has a 30" bar. The chain had been sharpened 5 or 6 times prior to my using the Timberline sharpener. Using the timberline sharpener it took 3 or 4 times sharpening the 404 chain before the chain was filed perfect. Sharpening before the timberline I would alway sharpen one side more than the other. Now that all the teeth are the same the saw is cutting amazing. I would recommend only getting the Timberline sharpener. It's a little pricey. Very happy with it. I try to sharpen the teeth after every 6 or 7 logs that way the teeth never really get dull. It take less to sharpen. I have cut my self two times after sharpening the teeth.
  12. Picked up another 86 honda 350 fourtrax that I'm hoping the motor is good. The guy I bought the wheeler from said he stoped riding it because it smoked. Been siting in his barn for some time. Motor turned over ok. My plan is to pull the motor off and pull the head and hopefully it will only need the top end done. Hopefully. Pressure washed the old wheeler down, just to clean it up before I pull the motor. The old wheeler will also give me lots of spare parts.
  13. Thanks for the info, this is going to be one of those projects. In the end I think this old crusty and neglected wheeler is worth it. This old wheeler will roll.
  14. I ordered parts for the frontend at Chaparral and after a week they sent an e-mail telling me the 6 items that I ordered they did not have. Great. I then ordered the parts from Partzilla and now just watching the mail. Finding parts is a challenge, but making new parts is part of the fun.
