Hello, I'm wonerding if someone can tell me what the proper fuel\oil
mix I should be using for my old 78 Polaris TXL. This sled is a 340
liquid cooled. Are there preferable oil brands to use on this sled. I
believe the sled has the original pistons and rings, and whould like to
help keep it this way!

Your suggestions would be appreciated

Jeff

Run a 40:1 mix.... use a TCW3 rated oil....and enjoy your classic
performance sled... I rode a modified TX 440 for a long time.. if yours has
a cleated track just keep an eye on them.....the rivets break.. I used
threaded T-bolts instead when the rivets failed & never had a problem...
Enjoy....John
