Thanks for the information I seem to not find any one selling a case for my 2014 x limitedTut has a case for sale in the classifieds section of the forum.
A salvage operation in Canada sells parts via ebay. They had a case listed about a year ago. You can do a search for completed listings and find them. If they know there is a buyer waiting, they might pickup another Wildcat to part-out.
Not sure if you know this, but the case consists of three pieces, bolted together and machined as a set. I don't think anyone knows how repeatable the process was, and whether you could get away with mixing pieces, but that may quickly be the only way to keep these things running.
Why I mention this, is that a friend (Marcus) had the passenger side break on his '16X last year. Idaho Rigging in Priest River, ID is an AC dealer and they did the repairs. Knowing that the case is no longer in production, I think they kept the case parts. You could give them a call and see if they still have the driver's side and bottom, and if it looks like the passenger side could be repaired. If not, I have a good passenger side you could have for the cost of shipping. That would allow you to see if you have a workable case before tearing down your engine.
10-4 that’s the plan after reading and seeing pictures of other doing it just got to get it out the of the machine now yay!!!!You can weld the case boss back on and reinforce it so won't happen again. This can be done without taking the engine apart, but the engine must be taken out.
Use the old stator cover as a template for the gear shaft alignment. You can cut non-structural areas off of it the help with sighting alignment. Purchase/use the longer gear shaft as well as reuse the broken off boss. Get a new/used stator cover for final assembly.10-4 that’s the plan after reading and seeing pictures of other doing it just got to get it out the of the machine now yay!!!!
