The radio is either stuck in transmit or the RF power output section has a short in it. If there is no RECEIVE audio and the squelch is open, and the radio is not in transmit, the chances are pretty good that the audio power amplifier is shot.

What would cause the elbow and manifold to get red hot in minutes on my 2004 Ski-doo elite under normal driving conditions? Could it have blockage in the muffler?

Blocked muffler will cause extreme reduction in power. When you say red hot, do you mean it glows red or it is very hot and you will burn your hand on it? The latter is normal, you cannot touch an exhaust system within a minute of running. Cherry red sounds abnormal. Engines putting out maximum power can have glowing manifolds but not average power. Make sure the timing is correct and do not use gasoline with an octane rating that is too high. Higher octane fuel burns slower. If it is still burning when the exhaust valve opens, it will continue to burn in the manifold. Use the gasoline recommended in the owners manual.

My dryer gets really hot on the top within 5 minutes of turning it on

Disconnect your exhaust hose and clean it out. You have an exhaust blockage.

How can i add more power to my midlan 75-785

I don't recommend a power mod on these. They will get hot and burn up quick with more than 4 watts going out of it. How ever there are some coils in there you can spread but make sure they are not the tuning coils.

Hi Frank, It sounds to me like you may have a bad dectector diode. Other possibilities are cold solder joints in the stand up boards in the IF section. Good Luck
