• 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.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"

    http://www.snowestonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=269222

    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.

The secondary will hunt continually.
The shift affect alone will make it hunt. Think about your belt sander or band saw, what would happen if you let the tracking adjuster float .030”?
The secondary needs float, mainly to eliminate side load to the jackshaft bearing. Polaris specs .010-.050” just for that reason.
There are many variables. Shaft flex, chassis alignment, secondary spline/shaft fitment tolerance that will force it off alignment under load..
Hope this answers your question of “to much float“?

Just to add to what Tony said, the secondary doesn't find a center and stay there. It'll move all the way out as far as you let it, when off throttle, and will move all the way inward, when on throttle. So, if you have lots of float, you just wear stuff out faster. But, with that said, my float is at about .050"-.060" simply because I didn't have a thinner washer. Good enough. No rocket science here...

I gave a video a shot, not an actor for sure. Hope this helps.
