Last week I acquired an older sled that is great looking and great running! It has two problems though!
1) When driving it seems to rev really high in the rpm but not really going very fast like 6-7000 rpm but only doing like 30-40 mph. It seems to be a clutch problem. Is their a way to adjust it? If so can someone please help me with a few steps to get me going? Is it the drive clutch on the engine that needs adjustment or the secondary clutch?
2) I can’t seem to get the choke to work. I removed the carb but it doesn’t have a flap for the choke, just a flap for the throttle. The choke cable runs inside the carb and i cant even unhook the cable just adjust it with the adjuster nut.

I know people are going to say oh it’s an old sled let it be. But no way it starts first pull and runs great and i just got a new track on it and i love it!
If someone had a downloadable copy of the manual or scanned copy that would be awesome seeing as I can’t find one anywhere!! Please help ASAP before the snow goes away!!

I have one of these sleds, email me some pics of your primary and secondary clutch.
Sounds like your secondary might be stuck. I had similar symptoms with that result. Mainly this is from corrosion. Pretty normal for the older ones that sit around. The primary’s are known for Grenading too.. Need to tear them down every 1000 miles or so. and they do not make replacement parts for them any more. I am on my 3rd used primary. I should of bought a new comet from the start.

Your choke is not a true "Choke", all the cable dose is open a jet in the card to richen the mixture for starting. My question is what makes you think it is doing something wrong?

These sleds are normally cold blooded, first time out in the morning 5 pulls to get her going. The rest of the day 1 or 2 pulls.

Hope this is good a start.
