My Pantera is alive!!
I got the 80 Pantera a few weeks ago and as some of you know I had a lot of questions lol!
(I still dont know where that other top oil line goes)?
I got the new line's all on and the spring/track adjuster/axle ect.. in and hopefully right and all the old gas out.
I changed the chain case oil and got the last acorn out of the exhaust pipe :laugh:
After my last experince with the Colt(RIP)I got my fire extinguisher and set out to hear her run!
Took about 20 or so pulls since the fuel lines were empty and she started trying to run,she kept flooding out so I figured out the choke was stuck,fixed that and cleaned the plugs and she cranked!!
Im so excited to hear her run,sounds good too,just needs fine tuneing and some duct tape on the seat and I should be ready for the snow were suspossed to get this week:woohoo:

You'll like the ride of this a lot better than the colt.
Move the rear skid mounting to the holes under the tunnel for better steerage and more ground clearance.

Im a noobie,I Googled Tunnel and Skid so I know what you mean now LOL!

Where the rear swing arm bolts to the tunnel, you will see a mounting tab just below the running boards, move the skid mount to that spot.

I used to have the exact same machine. That 500 pulls, that's for sure. Listen to OCR he knows his Cat stuff (the sled, not the fun cat).
