When ever the sled is idling the primary clutch starts squealing. I know it isn't the belt because that would make a different noise. I've never heard this on a sled before.
You and me both. I've been too busy to get into it. But it appears I'll have time tonight. I believe my issue is with the spacing - I need to shim differently. I just don't know how this could have gotten messed up. Do I need any special tools (besides a clutch puller) to pull the primary apart?Originally posted by snake61047

Eh, bingo - I can barely fit my finger between the straight edge and the belt. Little tight huh? Here's my question. I put a new PTO on the sled (I bought it broken), and just put everything back the way it should be. Now how the heck did this guy ride it like this? Or did I mess up the torque arm when I put it back together possibly? Or should I just adjust the 2ndary so I have enough?Originally posted by xcr440
[br]Don't worry about the height above the secondary. You need to place a staight edge on the belt and press down inbetween the clutches and then measure what you have, should be 1 1/2".
Let me know when... I usually ride around suger camp/three lakes every now and then.Originally posted by ibreakstuff
[br]I just adjusted it - it appears that it's been adjusted before. There were marks in the ring from where the stops hit it before. Now that I think of it - I know exactly what happened. When the PTO snapped it probably took the belt with it. And when I got it I put his extra (read brand new) belt on, hence the difference. It's much better now. I do need to get the correct tools to take a primary apart - I plan on being a Polaris guy for a real long time.
On a side note - not sure I'll be up there for New Year's this year. BUT, my aunt is coming to pick up some sleds the 13th. I need to go up there and pick up the trailer sometime after that. I'll be bringing my sleds up there to ride (hard to explain how i'm doing this without the trailer). She lives somewhere near Rhinelander, which is pretty clost to you. So when you guys have snow after the 13th, let me know. We can do some riding for sure, and I'll buy you a beer then.
