    Difference in tune up kits for Polaris 280?

    Can anyone help me with this question. My Polaris 280 is going in circles. Even though I had it reworked about 3 years ago, it looks like it is time to install a tuneup kit. Going on line, there seem to be 3 kinds of kits ... a rebuild kit for around $300, an A49 tune up kit for around $150, and something they call a “pressure side tune up kit” for about $130. Can anyone tell me if these last two items are the same thing? The pictures seem to show fewer parts in the “pressure side tune up kit” than for the regular A49 tune up kit.

    Also, if they are different, how does one know which one is the right choice to buy and install?

    Thanks for shedding any light on this.

    I figured it out. There is only one tuneup kit, the A49. Some vendors call it the “pressure side tune up kit” and others just call it a “tune up kit.” The list of parts is the same.
