    how did this happen?

    If you can get the timing specs, you can find TDC and make your own timing marks. You might double check for factory timing marks first.

    how did this happen?

    Does the flywheel or case have timing marks?

    Comet clutching alignment????

    Having the shaft end inside the pulley isn't necessarily the end of the world. Of course, things have to fit properly. Here's a page from the service manual covering the Polaris P85 CVT that was used for many years. Notice the middle photo with the large A reference. The sheave with the bowl...

    Those springs are available and along with the switching to the other ramps, will allow the driven to spin in either direction.

    Comet clutching alignment????

    Run time and user experience is pretty much the ultimate proof. I wouldn't say its happy that way. I see it as being ok with running a flat tire because the other three still roll. The driver design you mention is a big key factor. So to recap: 30 series works with a backplate because its...

    40 series torque converter installation - YouTube Here's one of the better explanations that I have seen on Utube for flipping the drive pulley. Starting at 5:50 He doesn't show a view of belt alignment though. People have sworn up and down that flipping the driver positions the belt way too...

    Comet clutching alignment????

    I have never seen any setup description from Comet referring to a backplate on the symmetrical systems. If its out there I would love to see it. Maybe mistaken but, I think these backplate kits are from someone other than the CVT mfgrs, possibly copying off the asymmetrical setups. And if so...

    Comet clutching alignment????

    With that orientation the pulleys will not be near perfectly aligned. During upshift the belt will be moving inboard at the front while its moving outboard at the rear. During downshift it will be the opposite. Some people claim that the driven pulley will "float" laterally to follow the drive...

    Comet clutching alignment????

    Dirty Dan. Any chance you could show a couple close up photos of the driven pulley on the shaft? With bolt, without bolt, where the end of the shaft ends? Can you try to turn the pulley around with the fixed sheave outboard to see if it fits, or what would keep it from fitting? I wish I could...

    Tuned Rotax 256, trying to find info

    I've had some Ski-Doo's with Rotax but ain't seen nothin like that. Obviously liquid cooled twin The carbs sit low and I notice the round plates behind the carbs so I'm guessing rotary valves. The top pieces on the side of the jugs above the exhausts, guessing exhaust valves? The...

    Stopping oil loss through breather

    I slightly followed some talk in the scooter world about this. It's common to replace the factory airbox with a pod. They were plumbing the vent to the oil fill and teeing off a vent line somewhere in the middle. Supposedly the oil would separate and drain into the fill hole? Not sure if there...

    Need help adjusting hydraulic go kart brakes

    That caliper design is a bit touchy and a China cheapo is a extra challenge. They are very sensitive to bleeding. Bleed twice and bleed again. It is a floating caliper with a fixed pad. It floats on two pins. One pin is in the accordion boot in this photo. The other pin is on the other side...

    good master links?

    One time you mention "blowing master links". Another you say "letting go". So what does the damage actually look like? Any photos? Does the clip go MIA and the chain come apart? Or does something break in pieces? I find it convenient on some chains to have a take apart master link and some...
