John, I think it is presumed in those two instances that you need to tip the sled back to a normal position before checking the coolant level. And adding coolant means to the top of the coolant tank. The cold level is just that...when COLD. when you add here, the coolant is warm and top it off each time you need to add. And there is no need to let the engine cool between steps 10&11, as when the engine was running the cap was at the #1 or non-pressurized position. We only put it to #2 full closed position before we tip the sled with the engine off. This is to prevent spilling or the coolant. When you are done, leave the coolant tank full to the brim, and by the next morning it will be near the COLD mark. Don't worry about overfilling it, you can't. If neccasary excess coolant will be expelled through the overflow hose. It would only amount to an ounce or so at most. You want that tank FULL to the brim when it is hot.Originally posted by JLeosnow@Dec 6 2002, 10:18 PM
I'm might be reading into this too much, but after step 10"(Tip the snowmobile onto the left-hand side (PTO-side) to allow air to move from the rear heat exchanger to the coolant tank)" to step #11"(Recheck the coolant level. If the coolant level is low, repeat steps 2 and 3)", AC made no mention of tipping the sled back to the normal position(not on it's side) before doing step 11 "(re-check coolant level)".
Also, there is no mention of if we are to let the engine cool of before proceeding from step #10"(Tip the snowmobile onto the left-hand side (PTO-side) to allow air to move from the rear heat exchanger to the coolant tank)" to step #11"(Recheck the coolant level. If the coolant level is low, repeat
steps 2 and 3)".....
The coolant bottle does read "COOLANT FULL LEVEL/COLD FLUID LEVEL"....... Thoughts?
Well, you answered my question about lifting the front end.Originally posted by rob@Dec 6 2002, 08:54 PM
This will be on the dealers' fax machines tomorrow morning. You are seeing it here on HCS before anyone else. It was just released tonight to the dealers. This is the result of 1 very long week of testing. AC managed to eliminate the need to lift the front end. This proceedure works very well if it is followed exactly. Its easy to do and consumers can do it if they read through it and follow it to a T.
