I have two 2005 Artic Cat 500 automatic's with very low miles, about 400 on each. I have several questions for anyone able to help me out.
1. What it the best oil to run in these? I went to get the oil change kit at the dealer and it was over $55 for 1 gallon of oil and a little filter! I decided to buy just the filters and they were $15 apiece, too expensive for a tiny filter IMHO! What synthetic oil other than Artic Cat brand which costs over 10 bucks a quart will work as well.
2. Where is the best place to buy a plow set up? I have Warn winches on both. Again, the Cat dealer would have to order one for my rig and it would be about $550 total and that was for a plastic plow! I would rather have steel and would like to pick one up tomorrow in Anchorage or Valley area.
3. Where is the best place to find good quality replacement batteries? Have heard of battery drain while running plow/whinch.
4. One of my wheelers is constantly dripping/pouring gas from the tube that runs out the back of the carb, running crappy. Have tried to run some Seafoam through it with no avail? I guess they have been sitting a little too long without being run. Any suggestions? I was thinking a stuck float??
Thank's for any Info.
