I am using solid motor mounts on my 700 imp, does anybody know the way to alignment it up, I know its different because of solid mounts. I have a alignment tool.
What is the offset for it does anybody know.
I use solid mts never heard of aligning it different? I dont see why the clutches need to be the correct ctr dist. and offset , the mounts just keep the motor in that position so it doesnt flex back or twist ?
bubba, my guess would be your alignment tool probably has some torque twist allowance built into it? you'd be better off lining the pullys up perfectly straight with 3/8" bar stock method. Use your belt width for the offset, for example if the belt your gonna be running is 36mm wide. The measurement from the outside of the 3/8" flat bar to the outside edge of the primary sheave should be the same (36mm) or slightly (.5-1mm) wider. The ecenter to center depends on the belt but should be the same as your running now 16.5-17mm? I'm not a big fan of solid or real hard mounts BTW, I've seen broken cases and burn downs related to fuel froth in the bowls from the vibration. But don't let me sway you, lots of guys use them.
Hillpounder is correct the clutches need to be aligned straight, for example if you use a Sled Pro tool you will see that there are shims (washers) behind the alignment pins and when you use solid motor mounts you remove the shims (washers) to align the clutches straight. -- Bill
