okay!, I have an 04 ranger 500 4x4 carbed.
it will crank and idle just fine, but won't accelerate or rev . No power at all. cuts out like its running real lean .
I have adjusted the valves, changed the oil, replaced the coil, adjusted the float, cleaned out the exhaust, changed spark plug. ( plug indicates very rich condition) . I have a carb rebuild kit on the way, however , I replaced the carb last year so its fairly new. the fuel pump is putting out 8psi at idle.
anybody have any insight , something else i need to check? Need help fast .... deer season starts next week !!!!

Hi There,

I am having this same problem just wondering if you ever managed to get the issue resolved?

Cheers,

Paul

Check the exhaust line on the cam. Although a more common problem on earlier 500's, the cams were made with non hardened steel and would wear down quickly. Especially if they weren't run with 0W-40 oil. Check the rocker arm too.
