What notch should I use to pre-load it? 96 T-cat 900. I have it on the first notch right now (least amount of tension) and ice is forming on the local lake, so it wont be long

That is a matter of where you wnat your rpms to be in a certain spped range and what you want for a top rpm. You will have to try it out and see where the tpo r's are at and then adjust. most start in the center and you can figure 1-200 rpm's per hole higher or lower rpm's per hole softer or tighter.

I have ran my 800 and 1000's in the center hole. 100 rpm per hole on top end. Clockwise ea. hole is 100 rpm more. Counter clockwise is 100 rpm less.

Mike is correct in saying check top rpm and then move spring to according hole. Rule of thumb is start in the center holes.

Life is not a bowl of cherries, it's more like a jar of jalapenos, what you do today can burn your ass tomorrow !!!
