I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.
A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.
A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.
If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.
If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.
Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.
As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.
Have a great season.
From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.
Found this post from another forum, and it makes sense to me. I'm a noob though, so yeah.... My 94XLT has a great big shim on the jackshaft behind the driven clutch. "To check the offset without a tool, use a straight edge across the back of the primary and long enough to go past the secondary. Measure the distance from the straight edge. It should be 5/8". To change the offset, there are shims on the jackshaft near the jackshaft bearing and shims on the bolt that holds the clutch. If you need to move the clutch out to increase offset, remove the clutch, add a shim, then remove the same thickness shim from the bolt. "
Depending on how much it is pointed outboard, a thicker shim behind the driven clutch might work.
I read somewhere that Polaris had tilted the bigger engines forward X degrees to get around that. Which motor mounts do you have, the original to the sled or the ones that are for that engine?
If you don't have the shim behind the driven clutch, in between it and the jackshaft that's a big part of the problem. Careful using too much because that jackshaft has to have some freeplay to prevent sideloading the jackshaft bearing. That washer is a thick one. I can measure mine if that would help. Stock '94 XLT
