Thanks for replying. I couldn't have asked for a better person to reply
I do not have the secondary inlet on the cover.
I have been reading about the lock mods. It sounds like you have moved on from the mod you were doing with UATV and on to the turbo parts. Ebay wants over $500 for that. OUCH! I will try a couple other sources and see how low can it go.
I investigated the clutches tonight. Nothing obvious stuck out and got my attention....... that is until I removed my primary. I can see obvious signs that the taper had been slipping. I also noticed that the bolt that holds this on to the crank was not as tight as I would have thought it would be. Pretty sure it took allot less than 80 ftlb to release it. There is a weird swirl pattern on both sides of the belt also.
I plan to do some rock crawling, rock climbing, rocky trails possibly towing a small off road trailer loaded with camping gear. Me and my wife are not small people so just alone load this thing to its capacity. At some point I am sure I will be going with a bit larger tires, but not over 31 ever in my imagination. No mudding, but I will occasionally do sand. Top speed is not important, but I will get to whatever top speed this is capable of. I do love a nice strong acceleration from a stop. I do not have any plans to do any crazy engine mods to increase the power. Probably would have never considered modding the clutch except it seems like it is necessary to extend belt life. I may at some point look in to a selectable locker for the front diff.
With that description, would you point me more towards the lock mod or the BRP square flange upgrade?
And how the hell do you remove the stud? I am planning on buying a pair of nuts to lock on to the stud and try turning it out that way.
Thanks for you help.
