      Does the starter just click once when it’s hot?

      Seth S replied to the thread 1971 CT90 (#2).
      Put in a fairly large order with the good doctor Atv. Aside from the comfort in knowing how solid your bike is you quickly realize that even $2k for a good running rideable example is a steal. It’s very easy to spend a $1000 on parts to revive...

      Seth S replied to the thread Gas pedal mount.
      Ok. Super easy way to check the pedal. Open the hood. Disconnect one of the ball joints so the carb is free from the gas pedal. Does the gas pedal and remaking link just flip around or does it stick?

      Seth S replied to the thread Gas pedal mount.
      It’s quite common for the pivots in the carb linkage to get sticky. I’d inspect those too

      Seth S posted the thread 1971 CT90 (#2) in MX / ATV / UTV.
      Was looking around on the Google last night and saw a thread here on CT90’s. I hang out in the 60 section most of the time and forget there’s another whole realm to the site. Anyways 20 years ago I bought and fixed up a 71 Red CT90. Foolishly...

      Suggest finding a donor driveline and swapping in.

      Seth S replied to the thread Low voltage until revved.
      I don’t think it would be a big deal to rewrite the alternator to work like other vehicles. Basically the circuit is 12v through a fuse through the dash light to the back of the alternator. When the alternator starts charging the circuit loses...

      It’s amazing how fast people who know what they are doing can get things done 😂

      It took the shop about 40 minutes to cut out the old muffler just behind the flange joint, weld in a new Magnaflow, and bend a new SS tailpipe from the muffler back to the rear bumper. They used a 5x8x14 Magnaflow. They charged $200 for the labor...

      Thanks all for the help. I ended up switching out the coil did not help but seems to start a bit quicker. @Seth S you were spot on. I picked up some carb cleaner and sprayed around the base of the carb and intake/exhaust manifold. I noticed a...

      Seth S replied to the thread FJ62 Headlight Upgrade Options.
      If the fuses are good I would check to see if you have power and ground at the headlight connector. If no then go check to see if the relay is firing. If yes then try a new bulb.

      Seth S replied to the thread Carb fan fixes.
      Sounds correct. I don’t know if the carb fan will turn on when engine is running or if it’s engine off only? I haven’t done any googling or diagram reviewing to answer this for myself yet.
    • Seth S
      Seth S replied to the thread Carb fan fixes.
      I’ll expand my thought process for the OP. The carb fan is ultimately needed to help cool the carb after shutdown and reduce or eliminate vapor lock…where fuel basically gasifies in the lines. So dieseling occurs before the carb fan ever turns...

      Seth S replied to the thread Carb fan fixes.
      I’ll be a little surprised if the carb fan fixes a dieseling problem.
    • Seth S
      Something as simple as the wrong plugs (wrong like el cheap brand) with worn electrodes or improper gap can cause running problems

      Seth S replied to the thread fj60 no power above 2500rpm.
      Concerning the valve adjustment…if you set the valves when the engine is cold then they will be tighter at operating temp. Setting the valves cold you could got 10 and 16 and still be fine. A little looser on the clearance is always better than...

      Seth S replied to the thread Abandoned 84 FJ60.
      I see I’m too late. I was going to recommend getting some 16” wheels as they will help a lot with running a 33” tire.
    • Seth S
      You might consider having it hot dip galvanized. Should cost around $1000-$1500 to have done. The end result is a chassis with protection hood for 40+ years of abuse.

      Seth S replied to the thread Carb fan fixes.
      Before we go down a rabbit hole that you will find to be deep and twisty…what is the current state of your engine. Is it likely that it hasn’t seen any real maintenance in the past 30 years beyond the basics like oil changes, filters, and...

      This and T stat cycling open and closed. If the T stat is working properly it will open and close regularly to allow coolant flow through the radiator. You can feel a real obvious temp difference in the air coming through the radiator between...

      All of my starting, idling, stalling, driving issues went away after I gave in and did a full service of the intake/exhaust manifold side of the engine. It was about $1000 of parts and machine shop work but it’s what was needed after 30+ years

      Seth S reacted to g-man's post in the thread H4 Headlight Options - what do YOU run? with Like Like.
      Then I installed IPF H4 headlamps, Hella h4 80/100w bulbs, and the ARB/IPf m002 loom. 7/2018...bulbs still going.

      Let’s run through the basics: 1. When the temp gage gets to the red does the truck boil over? 2. If you stand by the drivers side fender with the hood open and the truck idling…so the air from the fan is hitting you…do you feel the air get hot...
