I have a problem with my 1986 quad. I was out on here the other night, and it just stalled for no apparent reason. Tried to start it up again, but was a no go. Ignition was ticking over, but wouldn't kick into action. I checked fuel and had plenty.
I ended up pushing it home, 3 miles. Never realized how heavy it is until then.
Anyway, when I try to start it up now, same thing happens. Only now, I can't hear the fuel pump ticking when I first turn the key. I checked that all the cables were connected, and everything seems to be in place. Problem is, she is quite an old and battered thing. Most of the nuts and bolts that hold the plastic panels on are rusted solid, and I can't get them off without either drilling them out or breaking the plastic. And I am certain that there are connections that I can't reach or see due to this. Am I wrong? Or am I barking up the wrong tree?
Any advice would be greatly recieved.
