<_< Two turns to bring the marks to the factory lines ( thankyou Arctic Cat for giving me three machines with improper setups from the factory) and three more to bottom the rod out .

It's the dealers responsibility to check these things in prep. A good indication of how bad a job yours is doing.

Five turns, my dealer and I agreed to 2.5 turns. At 1000 miles and no problems I didn't want to start having any. Ran great today even with the extra oil added in the fuel so once that tank is gone I will have the same performance before the adjustment. It hit over 40 degrees today and I was working the sled hard in deep snow. Not one hiccup, This 700 cc motor is sound...

To firecat f7 , sorry that quote thing has be baffled. I believe that oil pump set up is NOT a part of Arctic Cats requirements in a P.D.I. . It should be and your right in the fact a good dealer should check it.

somethings wrong here.. 2.5 turns? A half turn will put the arm out of alignment and will jam the lever.

I stated that incorrectly Rob, Mine was 5 turns from bottom, I got the mechanic to settle on half way. He backed it off from bottoming a couple of turns and made sure it was aligned properly. Text typing and my brain do not always work well together..

Mine was 6 turns from the factory. I was averaging about 60:1 with the stock setting. Just to see what it would do I shortened it 4 turns and that ran at 50:1. I put it back the way it was.

Mine bottomed on the 1/2 turn as well. The question was how many turns to bottom out the pump rod. It took 3 1/2 so of course I aligned it at 3 turns in. After riding there was too much smoke, a big power loss, and the plugs were black so I put it back the way it was from the factory.

gallons of fuel X 128
-------------------------- = Oil ratio
Ounces of oil

Not all motors/rods/pumps/ect are the same, make sure your happy with your usage for the oil type used. toolboy
