Almost bought this 420

Almost bought this 2007 Rancher 420 for $1580.00 until I saw smoke. Also the reverse switch didn't work and it could go straight to reverse without pushing the button after going through neutral of course. Was a quick little sucker. Everything else seemed to work okay.

the smoke would steer me clear too, but a lot of folks do the reverse mod, so you don't have to use the little r ed button, its a rather common mod, just so you know, doesn't mean anything is wrong with trans or??

The reverse is probably just an adjustment in the cable.

The smoke would steer me away. 420 cranks don't hold up well. If you sink one and run it at all without splitting cases and thoroughly cleaning it out, chances are your crank will have to be replaced. I've rebuilt 3. Every one of them had to have a crank.
