Well its coming along ok. I needed a break.
The aluminum I modified cracked just a hairline when tapping it. That is ok. Now that is what JB weld is for haha. I have some on it and on the heater to cure it faster. I will replace it monday when my new friggen axle gets in. It would probably be fine with the very slight crack but I JB'd it just in case. Man don't get dyslexic on that one. HA!

The gear on the left is my stocker (non hyvo), the gear on the right is the hyvo one out of a newer poo that I had machined down to fit my sled. I got that installed and fits great. Couple that with my custom top hyvo sprocket and the new hyvo chain and I hope to have no more ratcheting. I also have the ski's back on.

Now.. Now to put this damn skid back together and get it installed. I wish someone was closer that could help me out. Its going to be a bitch to get in.

Skid finally in. That is the hardest skid I have ever done. I hate it. What a horrible design. Those rear bushings keep falling out and rivets in the tunnel get in the way.

Just have to tighten up the track, align it, fill with chaincase fluid, and go for a ride up the trail and back.. Pray for no problems!!

I am primarily checking the ski's. I am pretty sure the rear suspension will be fine and my new hyvo conversion will be fine.

I might to ask someone to bring 2 cotter pins (small) for my ski bolts. I don't know if I have any that fit.

^ Thanks! but no need, I just went thru my cotter pins and way down in the bottom there were 2 that will fit. One went right in (new bolt) the other one is giving me crap. I will drill it out at 5 a.m.

So, windshield installed, chaincase converted to hyvo with 2 custom sprockets and hyvo chain, skid fixed for now (made my own axle and bushing), ski saddles repaired with jb weld and installed and new bushings. And I did all of that today! 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Blows!!! But hopefully tomorrow will be problem free and I can reap the benifits even though I am already sore as hell. All in the name of blood sweat and gears. I will be bringing a tow strap just in case.

The only thing I cannot find is my balaclava!!! I am going to search in the morning but if someone has an extra or some kind of neck covering can they bring it just in case. If I don't find mine I will be screwed hardcore.

My track seems to be a touch loose from my adjustments, I was having a hard time tightening it. I will bring tools with me just in case. I just test drove it up the trail here and back.. no problems to report.

I am hoping we are not going over any lakes tomorrow. I didn't like that very much last time.

Dan is meeting me here at 6 a.m. and we will be off and heading north!!!

TUGHILLfever and I are out.[:(!] TUGHILL's sled lost spark at the end of the day today about mile from the truck up by the Lanterns. If we get it running early enough we will give Brenden's cell a call and try an meet up with the group at lunchtime. Looks like first stop tomorrow will be Houden's in Barnevold in the AM for a stator...[:(!]

Matt, glad to hear you go the sled going.[thumb]

^ That sucks! I wanted to meet you guys!!!!!

Time for some blood, sweat, and gears from you guys. I am assuming you have checked the obvious stuff and have deducted it to a stator. If it is the stator you should be able to get it fixed quick and back in action. I needed a flywheel puller on my sled when I yanked the stator. I PMed you my cell number. I will have my gps and have our coordinates if they are needed.

Good luck and I hope we get to ride together!

Sorry to hear the luck triple, sounds like that ought to be a fun project. let me know if there's anything i can do, hopefully you have a flywheel puller? if not i have access to one...

See you all in the am, the fuseback is finally back in action, after updating the previously "updated" carb boots and fixing my needle jet screw up...
