In January if picked up a '04 Ranger 500, DOA. Knew very little about it but came with a blade and winch. Wanted to get it running first to find out if engine, tranny, etc was good. The carb that was on it would not left fuel through. Engine would run as long as fuel was sprayed in the cylinder first. Bought a aftermarket carb, got it running but not good. Drove good, Hi side was out but could live with that. Made other repairs all the while trying to get that pilot adjusted so it start cold, idle decent and start hot. Went back to the 2-1/2 turns out several times to start over. Couple days ago I went back to the 2-1/2 starting point again. Not right. Made a tiny adjustment and bingo ! Starts cold or hot, idles good but not for long periods like 30 seconds or more but that's OK by me. Used it again this morning and worked great. I think I was adjusting the pilot to much at a time. I know for now I am not touching it. Few more little things and I can really enjoy the old girl, even though it is hot to ride in in hot weather. Has a hard top and back with canvas doors. Old school stuff. I have more in it in tires, brakes, rotors, etc. than I paid for it and sold the blade for $300 so about at the break even point.
