I just picked up a 77 range whip 400. Good condition except the hood has been painted a few times, looks like a red hood painted blue then badly back to red. It seems from what I've seen the 77 range whip should be red.
What color should a 77 range whip be? Were the blue hoods blue plastic or painted?
I'm not going to measure because we shouldn't even have accumulating snow in November. Probably 12" in this last storm if I was to guess. I was cruising around on the sting last weekend. Need to brake trails again now.
I cleaned the carb and replaced diaphragms/gaskets and set float, replaced isolater ring, cleaned tank and new lines/filter, freed up secondary clutch and replaced cam shoes, new plugs and wires. New non-ethenol 40-1.
It ran amazingly for a hour and half, great acceleration, good top end and perfect idle. Next day it started easy but boggs and won't move. I've recleaned the carb and rechecked the spring/float ten times. Good spark, will idle all day but boggs with any throttle. Seems like it's flooding. If I pull the pulse line off the carb it will run good for two seconds before it runs out of fuel.
