Im assuming it pre dates my ownership. I bought it last year. When i got it, it didnt really wanna idle or run very well. Backfired alot. So i pulled off the carbs and took them apart to clean and rebuild. After the rebuild, sled idled great and seemed to run fairly well, but there was no snow so i never got to ride it. This year i fired it and it was not running on cylinder 3, pipe was staying cold. After looking for that issue, found that the choke was frozen in the 3rd carb, starving it for air. Rebuilt it with some new parts and got it running on all 3. Took it out and sled runs great, pulls very hard and idles smooth. But still overheats. It over heated last year and i left it because there was no snow. This is the first iver tried diagnosing it. It has no cluster with a coolant light because im running a digatron to keep an eye on EGT's because its piped, among other mods. To watch the temp, i have a guage wired in.
