have you talked to a dealer about a drive shaft? Also we have a sponsor that might be able to help you www.foxvalleyatv.com check them out. I will have one more sponsor by the beginning of the year that is a polaris dealer might get some good discounts.

The dealers want almost 300 buck for a front drive shaft, 195 is still steep, but it is getting better. The front axles are fine it is the drive shaft I need.

I checked with local dealers and they are about the same price you stated above. Sounds like 300.00 is the correct price for the prop shaft. Unless you find a wrecked one on e-bay I don't think you could beat the 195.00 price. Parts for these things are not cheap. What happened to your other prop shaft?

It was given to me and at the time I had no clue about them or even if the machine ran. It was set on the trailer with a back hoe and I had to pull it off of the trailer. I thought there was something wrong in the drive train so I took it apart to find nothing. Here are some pics.


I then found out that it had been parked because of front end problems so I fixed that.




So all that has led me to where I'm at, my boss is looking for the front drive shaft at the shop, but who knows.



So I think that is pretty much the history of me getting this thing last summer and I have learned a lot about them or this one anyway.

New front prop shaft 195.00
That is the best price so far, who is that from????? I'm trying to get a trailer first so the drive shaft will be awhile. As far as parts donors, I'm not finding any of them

Thanks, my little one had fun with the painting, she didn't like me taking her picture though.

That is a great deal BigDog! I checked with my dealer buddy here and he wants $279.

If that rig was given to you or some sort of partial payment for work done then you are way ahead of the game.

A little TLC and that ought to be quite the machine.

Use a site like World of power sports and get the part numbers. Or what ever site you use let me know which one, so I can double check the numbers to mine. Use the quote tab or give me a call.

Boy, that thing had seen better days!
Sounds like it was either free or partial payment for some excavating work he did. He may never have owned a Ranger if it wasn't for this good fortune so lets not kick it!

The funny part is that some of the best machines I ever had were ones that came real cheap and just needed so work and TLC. A guy up the street gave me my first dirt bike back in 1966, Hodaka ACE 90 and said the engine was shot. Had it running in a few hours and $22 in parts and it is nothing but history from there!

Sometimes we need to get bit by a bug to get this disease! :2funny:
