    Is there a trick to adjust low setting on carb, while mounted?

    Is there a tool or trick to adjust card setting on each carb without taking off on a 3 carb Polaris setup. 1996 Polaris sltx 1050

    Take off the flame arrestor. The middle carb is still a SOB to adjust but it can be done.

    Bryan, I ended up, lifting them out. It was a good thing, it was full of gas under the 3rd carb.

    I guess that's what has been coming out of exhaust

    That much liquid gasoline in the crankcase is very much not a good thing!

    There is a possibility the engine has at some point completely or partially hydraulic locked. Hydraulic lock occurs when the engine pumps excessive liquid up into the combustion chamber and then tries to 'compress' that liquid with the piston. Liquid does not compress, so the stress on the piston and the connecting rod becomes extreme. Hydro lock can crack the papist on or bend a connecting rod, even just from the starter motor cranking the engine.

    It would not hardly turn over to start with, then fouled the plugs, but then cranked and ran normal. Is it ok???

    I think the needle in the carb might have been too high and not seating good. I adjusted it.
