    Secondary clutch

    You can check the clutch operation while in neutral correct? Primary closes and belt rides up fine, secondary won't open at all when at any rpm. A load shouldn't be needed? I can push primary in some by hand, but nothing gives when I try to spread secondary. Time to pull it I suppose? Am thinking that swim and shameful walk is still biting me. Thanks all!

    Load does affect the secondary but only in the rate of opening and closing, not whether it opens or closes. In neutral there is essentially no load so the secondary should open and close in response to RPM and it's effect on the primary.

    So, time to pull the secondary, disassemble it and find out where the problem is. Dirt, corrosion, wear, broken parts are all possibilities which could lead to binding.

    One thing I don't understand about your post is how the belt could be riding up the primary if the secondary isn't opening. The belt won't stretch that much and is a finite and definite length. Where is the "slack" (not the best term) coming from to allow the belt to ride up in the primary? Bad bearing in the transmission? Broken connection between transmission and chassis or engine (mounts)? Something has to be giving for the belt to be able to climb the primary sheaves without moving the secondary sheaves apart.

    Got the secondary off and something is rattling around on the inside. Cant really see anything on mine (classic) till I get that snap ring off. Saw a you tube video on how you can twist this one and clamp it to get the snap ring off. Got to that point and a tip broke on my small ring pliers. Going to try and get some the appropriate size today.

    Hey pyro, It is going up on the primary, but probably not as far as normal. Secondary doesn't budge. My first cvt. I will check for any other play that I hope won't be there. I would hope the belt would slip before it could cause more damage. Havn't pushed it real hard though.

    The Lisle 49200 snap ring pliers were 36 bucks at the twilight zone store.. Came back and ordered them for 16 on ebay. Will be a while for an update on the secondary. Am looking for a good vice and started another thread if anyone has a suggestion. Thanks!

    Alright, have the bugger in my new vice, snap ring off and nothing budges twisted or not. Going to read the manual again to make sure everything is done right. Any one had experience with the classic driven? On this one, it is fully enclosed on the other side, so I can't see what is going on. PB blaster maybe? Is it going to explode when it breaks loose? Thanks all in advance!

    Your on the right track. Soak with favorite penetrating fluid and going to have to drive the splined piece thru. Give the oil time to work and couple times soaking. Maybe giving a few blows with wood block and hammer to speed the soak.

    I have NO experience with that particular clutch. I do have experience with a similar secondary clutch on a Club Car Pioneer UTV. That clutch has a spring between the sheave halves and when you remove the retainer it springs apart, but not in some crazy uncontrollable way.

    So I need to find a way to control the helix when I start hitting it. Are they all designed the same way? The only video I found was twisting one sheave to release the force. Going to pb it and put my safety glasses on when I start banging on it. Got to find my c-clamps now. Wish me luck and don't tell the bride I have her hand towel in the vise.

    What kind of force? I assume you have done this a time or two. Does the spring load up or unload with torque in a vise?
