Mud Pro, H1 or H2 ?

Hey Guys, Still new to the AC quads I bought last November. I see a lot of chat on here about H1 and H2 engines.

I feel like this might be a stupid question but how do you tell the difference between H1 and H2 engines.

I have a 2010 Mud Pro 1000 EFI and I also have a 2011 Mud Pro 700 EFI. How do I tell what engine is in them?

I want to do oil changes on them both but would hate to put the wrong oil in them.

Sorry again if this is a stupid question...any help would be appreciated.

P.S I called the dealer and they pretty well laughed at me and said "are you serious". Needless to say I will not be providing them with any more business.

Thanks!!!!

get wet clutch approved oil. Arctic Cat oil is good stuff and you can use it in both machines- get a good filter; Arctic Cat, WIX, NAPA, purolator,

Oil filter cross reference

Thanks for the awesome links!!!

My service manual calls for 5W50 in my machines (700 & 1000) mud pro. This seems a little thick to me. From what I have read here it looks like 10w40 is more common to use.

I guess what my question is will it make much of a difference between the 2. I am in Alberta, Canada so the temp change is extreme from -35 winter to +35 decrees celcelus in the summer.

Just called dealer and they don't sell 5W50, they said they use 10w40 synthetic blend (mineral oil type) they called it. I don't think I would use anything other then full synthetic honestly.

Hard to find a concrete answer on OIL, little confused at this point!!Help

I know I know, beating a dead horse......just want to be sure

I use 10w-40 synthetic. Stay away from the "energy conserving" oil.

That is a heavy duty diesel oil, you use that in your H1? Is that better for the wet clutch?

Thanks again
