98 scrambler 400 4x4

So I have always seemed to have some sort of issue with the four-wheel drive system. It has been to polaris had fluids checked and all that but it never seemed to wanna engage right. Making only one front wheel spin and so on so forth. So my now the issue is the cv shafts. It seems they have popped out somewhat and is causing it to wanna turn whenever it wants. So my question is would there be anyway the front diff,drive shaft, and cv shafts could all come out to make it 2wd only?

You could but you'll need to find a couple plugs to fit on the backside of the strut to cover the hole that the shaft went through. You may want to remove the intermediate shaft as well.

Thank you all for the responses. Would it save a good bit of weight? Cause I really dont want to put 400$ in the front end with all the issues its had in the past. And while im here without creating another thread. I dont believe the factory piston has been replaced...so im thinking about going with the weisco piston. Would I be able to step up the compression ratio and use pump fuel? I would be pairing this with the stage 1 ritter cycle pipe, jet kit, airbox.

You really should give rick ritter a call about what you are wanting done.

+1 on the Rick Ritter suggestion. I have bought 2 exhaust kits from him for out 250 trailblazers; he will set you straight on that! Google "ritter cycle". He is in OH or IL i believe.

He will probably tell you to put aftermarket piston in the 400; they are known for breaking piston skirts.

You may also consider converting to premix and using polaris gold oil; we've done that on all 3 of our Tb's and love it.

FYI the 'airbox mod' is simply removing the limiter in the airbox lid snorkel. You can do that before any mods .

Good luck.
