Using a common spring loaded finger type glaze breaker for honing is never advised. Polaris recommends using a rigid hone or arbor honing machine which also has the capability of oversizing. Refer to the illustrations below. Crankshaft Alignment Fixture PN 2870569 NOTE:The rod pin position in relation to the dial indicator position tells you what action is required to straighten the shaft. Beginning at the oil tank, the oil flows through a screen fitting in the bottom of the tank and into the oil supply hose. The feed side of the oil pump draws oil through the hose and into the crankcase oil gallery, and then pumps the oil through another passage to the one way valve. To position crankshaft at Top Dead Center (TDC) on compression stroke: TDC “T”. Inspect teeth on ratchet pawl (A) and plunger teeth (B) for wear or damage. 2. Push ratchet pawl and hold it. The plunger should move smoothly in and out of the tensioner body. NOTE: Always inspect camshaft lobe if rocker arms are worn or damaged.

Compare to specifications. 6. Replace if worn or damaged. 3.21. The actuator ball in the camshaft is not replaceable. Replace the cam- shaft as an assembly if the actuator ball is worn or dam- aged. Compare to specifications. CAUTION: Tap only in reinforced areas or on thick parts of cylinder head casting to avoid damaging the thread. NOTE: Keep all parts in order with respect to their location in the cylinder head. 1. Using a valve spring compressor, compress the valve spring and remove the split keeper. Check spring for squareness. Compare to specifications. Replace spring if either measurement is out of specification. Valve Spring Free Length Valve Spring Length: Std: 1.654I (42.0 mm) Limit: 1.575I (40.0 mm) Squareness:. To check for bent valve stems, mount valve in a drill or use “V” blocks and a dial indicator. 3. Measure in two directions, front to back and side to side. 7. If any of the above conditions exist, the valve seat must be reconditioned. See Valve Seat Reconditioning, page 3.32. If the valve seat is cracked the cylinder head must be replaced. Follow the manufacturers instructions provided with the valve seat cutters in the Cylinder Head Recondi- tioning Kit (PN 2200634). Abrasive stone seat re- conditioning equipment can also be used. Keep all valves in order with their respective seat. NOTE: Valve seat width and point of contact on the valve face is very important for proper sealing. The valve seat should contact the middle of the valve face or slightly above, and must be the proper width. If the indicated seat contact is at the top edge of the valve face and contacts the margin area(B) it is too high on the valve face. Closely spaced coils toward cylinder head 6. Place retainer on spring and install valve spring compressor. If necessary, heat the crown of the piston slightly with a propane torch. If cylinder is tapered or out of round beyond.002, the cylinder must be re-bored oversize, or replaced. Cylinder Taper Limit:.002 Max.

See photo at right. In low elevations and cold temperatures, the air has more oxygen. In higher elevations and higher temperatures, the air is less dense. The venturi cross-sectional area in the carburetor bore is increased or decreased automatically by the vacuum slide, which moves according to the amount of negative pressure (less than atmo- spheric) present in the venturi. The fuel from float cham- ber (2) is metered by pilot jet (3) where it mixes with air coming in through pilot air jet (4). As the fuel fills the float cham- ber, the float (1) rises and forces the inlet needle against the seat, shutting off the orifice in the seat. DO NOT use an impact driver to remove the screws or carburetor may be permanently damaged. If anti-tamper plug is installed in pilot screw cavity, refer to Maintenance chapter 2 for removal procedure. O-Ring Washer Spring. Look for discoloration, shiny spots, or and area that looks different than the rest of the needle. The middle to upper portion of the needle where it contacts the needle jet is the most likely wear point. Make sure the diaphragm is pliable but not swollen.

The diaphragm should fit properly in the carburetor body. Replace diaphragm assembly if diaphragm is damaged. 2. In this position, the float tongue will rest lightly on the inlet needle valve pin without compressing the spring. Apply 5 PSI pressure to inlet fitting. The needle and seat should hold pressure indefinitely. The pump is located under the headlight cover at the front of the machine. Refer to illustration on following page for fuel pump compo- nent identification. No fuel in tank Restricted tank vent, or routed improperly Fuel lines or fuel valve restricted Fuel filter plugged.

Place a new foam seal on transmission input shaft. 3.

Apply RTV silicone sealant to outside edge of inner cover-to-engine seal, to ensure a water tight fit between the seal and the cover on engine side. This is accomplished through weights and a spring inside the unit which react to the centrifugal force applied to the clutch from the engine RPM. The springs which have a 7041148 higher rate when the clutch is in Silver 7041062 neutral. These shift weights have many factors designed into them for controlling engagement RPM and shifting patterns. Shift weights should not be changed or altered without first having a thorough understanding of their positioning and the effects they may have on belt to sheave clearance, clutch balance and shifting pattern. The X’s may not have been in alignment before disassembly. 2. Remove cover bolts evenly in a cross pattern, and remove cover plate. Clutch Holding Fixture: PN 2871358 Spider Removal Tool: PN 2870341 NOTE: It is important that the same number and thickness of washers are reinstalled beneath the spider during as- sembly.

A press can be used to remove and install some of the bushings. See illustration at right. 2. Start new bushing evenly in moveable sheave. Apply Loctite 680 retaining compound to the back side of new bushing. Outwardly, both drive and driven clutch resemble those used in a standard PVT system, however, there are some important differences in the EBS clutches: Belt Deflection - It’s important to note that the belt is always “tight”. Because of the critical nature and precise balance of components within the PVT system, it is absolutely essential that no attempt at disassembly or repair be made without factory authorized special tools and service procedures. The clutch should rotate on the shaft with only slight amount of drag. There should not be any binding or rough spots. Replace as an assembly if worn, damaged, or if problems were noted on page 6.37. 4. Inspect surface of shaft for pitting, grooves, or damage. Review all information below before proceeding.

The spring is a compression spring only and has no torsional wind. NOTE: Rotating the moveable sheave so that the roll- ers are not in contact with either helix ramp surfaces will lessen the effort needed to push helix inward.
