I have recently bought my 1st Fourtrak 1989 2.8tb so am new to this. The gears are very clunky & when its cold Its hard to get into 1st & 2nd gear. i have been told that all 4x4s are like that but i find that hard to believe. can anyone tell me if this is true?


not true, this is quite a common problem with fourtrak, usually caused by a nut on the gearbox coming loose which just needs re tightening. i think its on the back of the box but im not sure, i think you have to disconect the propshaft to get at it, may even have to drop the box slightly. but im sure someone on here will know exactly where it is and how you do it all the best mark
