has anyone herd of a bad belt making your secondary stick out and not come back in. my clutch has new bushings a good spring, but when you punch it the belt makes this really bad noise because the secondary is open at low speeds and wont close. when i put the new bushings in there is still some play on the shaft but i am told that there is suppsoe to be some play. any help will be great, maybe it is on in the belt it just seems weird to me.

its whens its unper a load it seems to not come back in. i tryed to pull a buddys sled on a flat trail because he ran out off gas and it would make this noise.. itsl almost like a really bad ratching noise but i no its not the track or cogs when you open the hood you can watch the clutch not return in sometimes ( always when under a load)

You need to wind your secondary spring. Place the clutch on a roll of duct tape, rotate the cover clockwise to the next post while pushing down, then install the nuts. The spring must be under torsional load or the sheaves will not close properly.

Check your chain. Does it have an auto tensioner or a manual bolt and lock nut. If its a manual, try to adjust it. Ron.

How much did you wind it. Maybe not enough.

What in the world does the chain have to do with the secondary not closing??

maybe it just needs a good wipe down. it could be binding up somewhere. the clutch it self should have some play on the shaft.
