Does anyone know what the size thread the tool you use to open the clutch to change the belt. I have either lost mine or it did not have one ne the tool kit.
Pack a wood dowel or hammer handle with you to jam between the sheave and the housing. Still a pain, but doable. I've never had a belt failure in 3K milesYour are right but I need to see how it's going to be out on the trail, I bought a bolt the correct size and have opened the sheave but dang it's tight between the clutch and housing. The gap is not as wide as the belt.
What belt did you go with and why?Well, I got the belt changed and let me say, Textron this is a poor design for sure. All they had to do was add an extra half in to the housing and this would be a easy job. The belt an the gap are exactly the same size and it's near impossible to line the belt and the gap up even. On the trail after dark or in bad weather changing the belt with out taking the outer section off would really @$%#. Now for new brake pads while I wait on my steering rack to get here.🤪
