    That engine is turning about 12-1800 rpm, the clutch opens just shy of that, gradually. If you are confident and careful, manually twist the linkage where the cable attaches and see if more rpm happens and clutches begin to work properly. Watch loose clothing.

    If the clutches work properly attempt to reach 3600-400 rpm with adjustments, starting with taking any slack out of the cable.


    My new beer holder spilled some on the trails - in it's hair and down it's throat.
    Joe Camel never does that.

    Advice is free, it's the application that costs.

    I think you definitely have something bound up in the drive clutch, and it's possible that the driven needs attention too. Pull the clutch off the engine and take the cover off to see what's up.

    Was part of your video at full throttle? If so Jim is correct, the engine isn't making enough rpm to fully engage the clutches.

    Thanks for the info on needing higher rpm. I ran the rpm's up higher and both the driver and driven clutch seem to be working properly. Installed new belt and finally got the right tension. So for the time being, all is well. I really appreciate all the help. I just purchased some new tires, and was wondering which way the v tread should be pointing? I will never be in the water, just on land.

    For traction only on dirt the v points to the rear on the ground. The other way is for grabbing water to swim.

    This is a Very Open subject !
    Originally The V is to point to the Back. This way the machine Grabs / CUPS to dirt/snow/mud and ride on top for flotation and traction. You Don't want to dig down as these machine have very low ground clearance and will High Center getting you stuck. You already have good traction as you have 6 tire pulling !
    Some may say other wise BUT Look at Any old add for these machine and see for your self !
