Ok,so i am making a lot of progress on my Polaris 400 Storm project and i am down to the jackshaft.Im not sure if i installed it correctly.The jackshaft is from the 88' Indy 400 and the chassis is a 95' Storm.Here are some pics of the piece in question.I am not sure if the bearing is where its suppose to be.It seems to not be in the fitting far enough.Let me know what you think.

Doesn't look like it's on right, but it's hard to tell with the pictures you gave us.

The bearings doesn't appear to be fully seated in the bearing "holder".

I think its on wrong. To me it looks like you need to remove the bearing from the jackshaft. Then install the jackshaft into the body of the sled. After the jackshaft is in place, then slide the bearing on from the outside. After you get it on, put the gold colored bracket on behind it and tighten it down. The gold bracket helps hold the bearing in place. After you do this, then make sure you tighten down the allen screw in the locking collar.

I think it's also on wrong. The bearing holder is doing very little the way you have it on.
Remove the bearing.
Slide the first bearing holder on, then put the bearing on, seating it firmly in the first bearing holder, then put the outside bearing holder on and tighten. You need to flip around the inside gold bearing holding to make a 'cup' for the bearing. Parts 9-12 on Partsland.
I hope you have your rear suspension out because that will make it a ton eaier to tighter the lower bolt.

I read the HCS post after I typed and those guys over there are right.

ya that isnt right, the bearing has to be between the bearing plates, those triangle plates. You have to put one on first then put the bearing on, then the other bearing plate goes on and they clamp the bearing inbetween each other. dont put the collar on (round piece with set screw in it) on until u have the jackshaft in the correct place and the clutch is alligned otherwise u will probly be loosening it and moving the shaft anyways. hopefully that helps you

either get a bearing puller, or take the shaft right out and use a press or torch it off if none of that works

bearing puller u can get at most tool stores. It has a big bolt in the center, then has 3 jaws. Just gotta make sure there is enough reach with it. If there isnt u gotta press it off[attachment=49679]

Not sure the puller will work in that application.
It's a pain to replace IMHO. Are the bearing holders doing anything? They might be installed wrong which will actually help. Can you get both the bearing holders off the end of the jackshaft? If so, you might be able to hammer the bearing off from the backside. If that doesn't work, use a cutting disc on an air tool.
That's a start. If you can't get to it, then it's a job.
Give an update when you check it out.

There is no bearing holder on the side closest to the clutch.Should i take it off and try hammering it off the shaft?When i put the bearing back on,do i just need to make sure that the bearing fits in the collars right and thats it? Trav

there has to be a bearing holder on the backside...the little triangle peice there should be two of them. When it goes on the other side of the bearing and you put the front one they should bolt together and hold the bearing centerd and inplace. when you get yourself another holder fo the backside you have to get the bearing off there to get the holder on, and then you slide the bearing back on.

After you slide the bearing on leave it loose and bolt it together...doing so should pull the bearing to the exact point it should be at. after you have done that tightend the little set screw back down and tighten it up....if your taking the bearing off you might as well go buy a new one.

Dont go to the dealer to buy it it twice the price....go to your local bearing place and bring you old bearing with you. They should beable to match one up...i bought mine and it was only 12 bucks...its alot better to do that now then having to do it when that one goes on you.
