I want to re-do my chain case. Im just not sure where i should go to get the parts. Or more so, what kind of parts should I get? I might as well do all the bearings in the jackshaft and driveshaft on the other side as well while its going to be apart. Anyone know of a good place to get some good parts for it? 1998 rmk if it matters.
I was looking on ebay for OEM parts.. Should i get OEM or go with something else?
Yep, Ive been hiding down here in stj still!!! lol..
All i got left my is my 98 rmk 700!!
The thing is I didnt want to take the thing apart until i got the new parts for it, as I might actually get to take it out for a spin within the next few days.. Its snowing right now, so hope we get a bit so i can take it out for a half ass decent ride haha
I've got a picture of Baller's bearings when he did his chaincase. Maybe the part number is on there. I took the picture to make fun of him because the brand of the bearings was "Fag." When some Chinaman named that company he didn't do too much research into the connotation of English words!
NAPA is an expensive - just not sure how good quality bearings that they sell. Something like the chaincase or drive / jack shafts - I would highly recommend using good quality bearings. NTN bearings is what I would recommend. WL
My neighbor used to say "The speed that thrills, the speed that kills"
Ya I think i figured that out now. 6205 is really just a size but that doesnt mean alot. I think the clutch side bearings are 6205's too but different than the chain case ones. I think i am getting some nice ones from my dads work.
Anyone know a good place to order the seals? I was thinking i want some aftermarket ones. The ones in that ebay bearing/seal kit says they are dual lip seals n the polaris ones are single lip so i kinda want the dual lip ones.
I got the chain case bearings. Now I need to order some seals. Kinda what to do the clutch side bearings also, but may just wait.
Got the motor pulled since i found a broken motor mount. Then i noticed my torque stop loose. And ever since i started trying to replace that ive ran into alot of problems haha.. Gona be a little bit before i get it going again.
Ya I know, be taht much easier to just do it now and not have to worry about it. I have all the bearings except the clutch side driveshaft bearing.. I got one with a collar for the jackshaft.. It kinda looks like the driveshaft bearing doesnt have a collar? Hmm
I can find the polaris part numbers easy, but not as easy to find the part numbers when i want a replacement other than factory parts.
I ripped my sled apart and I found out both the clutch side bearings dont have a collar, i thought at least the jack shaft one did cuz the other older ones do. I might be able to use the one I got wiht the collar on the jackshaft, But ill have to still get one for the driveshaft.
Got the chain case out and I think its fairly obvious the seal is bad haha.. Ill try to post pics soon. I ended up ripping my sled completely apart, Damn near everything is off of it.. Not that it matters, we dont have any snow left after the rain..
Fucked up the hole for the motor mount when trying to get it out, have to get it welded again and drill it out like i did when i first built this sled. Got the torque stop put back on. Decided to use grade 8 bolts instead of rivets. I think i had to rerivet it back on when i built the sled, and it obviously didnt hold up. I might have went overkill but i put some jb weld behind the torque stop just to be safe, don want another broken mount..
