    I pulled the carbs on the 1996 polaris sltx 1050. I see under the 3rd carb is full of gas.

    Also, i got to excited and put to much torque on the carb bolt and stripped it out. I removed the washer and is barely caught but was seemed snug. Would you just leave it since it got snug????

    Is it the bolt or the manifold that stripped? I had that once and I ended up replacing the manifold.

    It's the manifold. I took off the washer and it tighten down, but i guess ill try to find a long screw. Just need to find the size

    Stuck open needle valve in that carb. Just get a heli coil kit for that size bolt easy repair.

    I think your right. I adjusted the needle, but my carb adjustment was bad, so i left it at the shop at the lake. Too hard to adjust not by the water, so hopefully he will heli coil it too
