I have my father's yamaha big bear at my place to get it running. The airbox had alot of gas in the bottom of it. I cleaned up the air filter and found out that the ignition switch was bad. He had tried push starting it. There was also alot of gunk in the carb. Anyway I checked the oil level then tried starting it and it started right up. The issue is as soon as I gave it throttle gas? oil? shot out of the crank case vent but it sure looked and smelled like gas. I assume that it was badly flooded. I will change the oil then start looking it over again. I was running it with the intake and crank case vent pulled off is it ok to do that or is that was caused the gas/oil to shoot out?
Does anyone know any good websites where I can get manuals, part no.'s etc for this bike? I think its an 1987 but I'm not sure yet just wanted to make sure it would fire up before I spent too much time on it. Right now the electric start won't work, it has cracked cv boots, and brake issues.

There is no reason an 700 pound machine shouldn't catwalk and drive through 6 feet of water.
