so I took a spin on my sled the other day and ran it out of fuel put fuel in it today and pulled it over at least 20 times wouldn't fire so I pulled out plugs and put gas down plug holes pulled it over ran for 10 seconds quit repeated the same process of putting fuel down plug holes aleast 30 times runs long enough to burn out fuel and quits ran good before I ran it dry on fuel any ideas also its a 800 carberated and has lots of spark

Take the plug off the bottom of the carbs. Check if there's any fuel in the carb bowls at all. If there's no fuel it could have an air lock in your fuel line. Or or could have caused a problem in your fuel pump.

Basically i I would check if there's fuel in your carbs at all, if there is, your jets are plugged, clean the carbs. If not take the fuel lines off the carbs, is there any fuel in the lines? If not then there's an air lock in the lines probably.

There's not much to go wrong on a carbed sled for fuel. It's either fuel delivery to the carbs, or the jets in the carbs.

ok I finally got it running again ran fine for 5 minutes then locked up took plugs out and magneto side top of piston looked pretty clean like it was washed and clutch side was stained just had piston installed on magneto side last winter kinda thinking it has a head gasket leaking antifreeze into that jug as after it sat for 10 mins I restarted it and drove it home but only ran on I plug as magneto side plug was screwed from overheating on magneto side
