I just replaced an old belt on my snowmobile that badly needed to be replaced. I made sure that it was the correct belt, but now that I put it on, the snowmobile takes off by itself. I tried adjusting the driven clutch spring pressure, but with limited success. How do I take care of this problem?

You will need to change the belt deflection on the clutch. Your manual should tell you how to do so.

Go to www.midwestmanuals.com and you can down load a manual in 5 minutes and its only $7.50. Also don't forget to check lube clutch rollers/weights. I've found this to be major problem area for older sleds.

Thanks. I downloaded the manual yesterday and it does show me how to adjust the belt deflection. Happy snowmobiling! [8D]
