So, your saying to take the belt off and soak the primary with WD-40 and let it sit overnight. Got that.
But then when I start it the next day, I should run the engine WITHOUT the belt installed.
So, it ain't going anywhere without the belt on it. Should I run the engine fast enough to engage the clutch without the belt on it? Will this help to "unstick" anything? If the clutch can be made to work and engage and then disengage, would that hurt the motor or clutch to run without the drag/friction of the belt?
Of course-- keep my eye on the tach and don't over rev the engine. The tach goes to 10,000RPM, but it never goes over 7000RPM when I ride it. I would think that if I kept the RPMs around 7000-8000RPM; I wouldn't hurt the engine. But, what about the clutch at those RPMs without any drag on it?? Might I be the unwilling recipiant of a Fragmentation Grenade??[xx(]
I'm very new to snowmobiles. I would think that if I could run it without the belt-- and make the clutch work-- maybe sling that WD-40 around inside there-- it may help to loosen things up a bit more.
Maybe a trip to the carwash afterwords? Blast out all that crud that the WD-40 loosed up??
Thanks for the help.
