Default wildcat jamie

ok ive spent some time getting familar with the parts engine,,,,i was told by a gut to check my impulse lines,,,1 was all cracked to shit,,gonna go out in the next day or 2, clean my fuel pumps,,trim my spark plug wires,,get new plugs again,,it was said that all this trying to start it would have the base of the motor to be full of unburnt fuel and oil mixture,,there is no drian plug on the base,,i dont want to take me cylinders off if i dont have to,,i f i do i can drain it that way,,if my reeds are bad ill take em off and drian it,,but im gonna try the new impulse lines b4 the reeds,,could i drain all fluids and have my sled turn upside down for a few hours to let that shit drain,,or do you sugggest a different way,,if i do do the reeds im gonna do the stator @ the same time,,im trying avoid this and a $200 gasket kit,,i dont understand why theres no drian plug on the crank case,,would it be due to to much compression,,are there engines with them i was told there was,,could i tap and die a plug......im typing this once and pasteing it to 6 sites,,hopefully hear of a way to drain my motor,,,,also could i just dump some more gas into the the engine and lite it,,burn it all off,,would this f@&K MY ENGINE OR ANY SEALS,,i want to make sure theres no unwanted fuel in it before i try to fire it up after i change the lines ,,thanks

PM HOBB-Z. We had a 93 Wildcat, I loved that sled.

He may be able to help you out.

pull the plugs and pull it over, it will clean out the case real fast!!! any unburnt fuel that stays in there will be burnt up the minut the sled starts.

if the fuel pump is bad it can fill the case with gas,

I can't believe Cat didn't put drain plugs under that beast?

Anyways, do what madcow said. May take a time or two, but it'll clear out. But if you keep getting tons of gas froth coming out, you have an issue.

ok,,,i went out to take the stator out,,was gona bring both to be tested,,but when i went to put the puller on to take the mag off it just feel off,,right away i noticed NO timing key,,,put a new 1 in,,put it all back together,,like before,,,a 1/4 pull ha F@&k yahhh it fired up,,who hooo about time,,,,,,but im only running on 1 cylinder,,the clutch side is gettin to much fuel i think,,when i pull the plug cap off it doesnt do anything,,when i pull the mag side cap off it shuts off,,will start with 1 plug on mag side but will not on the other side,,had the carb off and back on,,then off again,,and the bowl was full so its getting fuel,,when i sit the plugs on the head and pull it over,,i get nice good spark from both sides,,the clutch side plug gets soaked,the mag side which is the only side running is dry,,,when i put the timing key back in does it matter where i put it in,,i mean like sideways from the top,,would only fall out if you done it form the bottom,,does anything have to be lined up,,i didnt touch the stator so it shouldnt be out of timing,,,is it a carb problem ,,timing problem,,,,or a coil problem,,,,i think its getting to much fuel,, the carbs i have on now have a primer hooked up to em,,the other 1's dont,,,if my carb is no good can i change the 1 and keep my primer hooked up to 1 and not the other,,or should i take the primer right out and go with both carbs,,i dunno much about carbs,the basics is about it

You may have spark on the plug with it laid on top of the head, but none under compression.
Did you try a different plug there?
An inline spark detector is very handy tool to have in this case, also try swapping the plug wires and see if it helps or just follows. That can eliminate the plug itself as the problem.
Did you try trimming 1/4" off the end of the wires and reconnecting the end caps?

Yes, that is how newer sleds actually do reverse, the timing is retarded to the point of almost stalling and then on till the engine changes direction.
See, two strokes don't care which direction they rotate to run. So, if you had an application where you needed the opposite direction of rotation, all you would have to do is move the timing 90 degrees out of phase.
