Default Accidentally a 133"?

I have installed a newer track on my sled, 95 580 Powder Special. After I installed the track, it doesnt seem to want to move at all when I try to move it with my hands, I have installed tracks on this sled before and they seem to be able to move by using my hands after previous installations. Of course I am trying to move the track when the sled is suspended in the air. Its all stock. My question is this, can a 133" actually even fit on a 136" suspension? If so, could I have accidentally gotten a 133" and done a complete installation? Or would the 133" not even let me bolt everything back together? Also, Before installing, I did compare the one I took off the sled to the one I was installing and didnt see a difference in length at all.
Thanks - P

Default Update

So, Thank you to IDCATMAN1 for help through a PM on this issue. Heres an update: 1, I do have plenty of slack in the track, i just CAN'T seem to move it with my hands when I push or pull on the track, and when it is on the ground, it just drags without moving the track like being in motion. 2. When I turn the Driven clutch it moves the track just fine. Interesting, Anybody else have any thoughts?
Thanks - P

I took a picture of the rear of the track, hopefully it loads, there is this metal bracket that looks to be part of the tension bolt where the rear rollers are. it is touching the track and seems to be creating a larger arc than that of the rollers are suppose to be creating. Maybe I need to tighten those bolts so that the rollers are further back and the track is only ttouching them?

I would say the track touching that bracket is your problem. It should not touch at all and will damage the track in short order if it does and you run it. Tighten the track some more if you can to get clearance. If you have to over tighten it to get clearance, that's not good either and it won't work. The track will stretch a bit if it is new, but if it is used you won't have that luxury. It looks like that track has a Polaris paddle design and I know they made 133.5" tracks. It's possible you got one.

Default skid track

did you change the skid to a 136?
or did you just do extensions
if you swapped skids
you have to change the front mounting hole postion

Hey guys,
So I was SOOO frustrated with this issue that I had given up on it, and said F*** it, and I didn't ride last year anyways. But now I am ready to get this squared away. I called the guy who sold this track to me, and he is going to look to see if he has a 136" in stock in his garage.

After I had installed in, I noticed that I couldn't screw the tensioner bolts much.

The track is off a Polaris, and it has 1.5" lugs.

I am almost positive it is a 133.5".

Clearance is good, since the lugs are 1.5"
