Ealier this year when i could ride a little bit b4 xmas i notices an unusual noise and vibration, so i greased up the bearing ont he drive shaft good and it subsided, a few days ago i took off rear skid and front shocks to get shocks rebuilt and the dealer recomended that we just change that bearing now. so me and my dad tore it apart this evening.

The Culprit:Notice the chunk missing fromt he bearing...that could pose problems....The second pic is the piece of the bearing that came out of the locking collar



Sled sittin in my shop:


Parts that came out of sled:



Unfortunatly the shaft got worn just tiny tiny bit, we are just roughing up the shaft w/ a punch so it will hold the bearing, next time bearing needs removal, might need a hammer and punch instead of it just sliding off, but w/o roughing up shaft it would go out again right away and ruin shaft, this has been proven to work in many shafts that have been worn just a tiny amount in all farm operations


Some pics under the hood:



Maybe i should have changed the chain case oil this year.....that is bad....pretty ugly...



sorry for thsoe who may be readin this with dial up as lots of pics...i guess if it takes to long to load and u become impatient, oh well.....had to post it cuz it was a fun project.

If it wasn't for your headlight and tailight, you'd be invisible at night:)
